Twin sisters dive on Twin Sets at Twins Dive site in Thailand

Female Divers are taking over the male dominated technical diving community.

Koh Tao, Thailand

Big Blue Tech recently completed a TDI Intro to Tech course for Sarah and Sally Winters which was conducted over 2 days in the sunny tropics of Koh Tao Island on the east coast of Thailand. Sarah and Sally had just completed their TDI Nitrox Course then did a discover tech dive and were hooked!

The TDI Intro to Tech course is designed to give the student the certification to dive in technical gear while following their own personal limits. Although the course gives no enhancement in depth or time at depth it does teach the student advanced buoyancy and control in complicated equipment.

The advantages of technical diving equipment is the safety of redundancy and having twice the air which allows you to go into overhead environments and conduct longer dives.

Sally and Sarah leave Koh Tao for Bali but will return next month to progress through the next modules of the TDI diving education system.
