We have the HIGHEST rating awarded by TDI - a 5* Professional Development Centre. Our instructors attended the Instructor Trainer Workshop in Hurghada March '17 meaning we're either Course Directors or Instructor Trainers that can conduct Instructor-level courses right here at H2OAll of our tech instructors dive tech regularly; they don't just teach you and keep their twinset dry until the next course. If they're not teaching tech, they might be teaching recreational (with snorkels in their pockets :D) planning the next Master Class, or going for a fun technical dive. This is important information - you need to choose a technical instructor who actually dives tech, who has experience in different environments that they can pass on to you. This is how you'll be a competent, safe and knowledgeable tech diver H2O DIVERS DAHAB TECHNICAL ARE PROUD TO BE THE TEAM WHO SUPPORTED AHMED GABR IN HIS SUCCESSFUL WORLD RECORD TO 332.35M HERE IN DAHAB, SEPT 2014
TDI Extended Range Instructor TDI CCR Helitrox
Jenny stared technical diving in 2012 and got hooked by the dark side. After being the deepest female support diver for Ahmed Gabr's world record dive in 2014. she started to train for deeper dives, having been to 150m and many times below 100m. She is a keen photographer and CCR diver
TDI Deco Pro Instructor TDI Advanced Trimix Diver
Alex started tech diving in 2010 and completed Advanced Trimix the same year. For years after this she completed lots of technical dives up to 100m. In 2016 she did her tech instructor course and has been happily teaching Intro to Tech, Advanced Nitrox & Deco Pro courses since
TDI Extended Range Instructor Trainer TDI Advanced Trimix Instructor
Jaimie has done multiple dives below 100m and supported many, many more. He assists in planning, gas blending, logistics and support diving in any Master Classes we conductHe's been focusing solely on technical diving and instructing since 2012 having certified many happy students along the way.

BRING YOUR OWN GROUP - premier facilities for visiting instructors.
All our equipment is from established companies - Apeks, OMS, Halcyon, X-Deep and maintained to the highest standards. At H2O Tech, safety of our divers is the main priority
We offer complete technical diving packages, for divers of all experience levels.
We have a full range of Tec courses from Nitrox to Trimix, guided dives and CCR (Rebreather) .
Knowledge is one of the main criteria in making a decision in the face of an unforeseen problem. The more you know the better the decision you can make, the more likely you are to make the right call.
Skills are the corner stone of technical diving. The aim is for perfection in the execution of every skill. Second nature skills ability leaves less room for error in any event.
The training focuses on patience, quality and development, not just skills and knowledge but also the mental attitude to think and function underwater like an excellent technical diver.
Each of the above aspects is covered in great depth and detail on any tec course at H2O Technical Dahab.
(All TDI Courses are available at Diver and Instructor levels)
Intro to Tech teaches you the fundamentals of technical diving, starting with: twinset, trim and propulsion The course focuses on perfecting buoyancy and fining techniques as without those – your life as a technical diver just got harder. Starting with the basics, we can then progress to skills being performed neutrally buoyant and in trim.
Nitrox diver qualifies you to use Nitrox mixtures containing 22-40% O2 to a maximum depth of 40m. TDI Nitrox course is an entry level course where you will learn the benefits, hazards and proper procedures for diving with EAN 22 to EAN 40. It can be used to extend bottom time, depending on gas consumption.
Advanced Nitrox is used to expand your time underwater. The TDI Advanced Nitrox Course qualifies divers to use enriched air nitrox through to 100% Oxygen within your current certification level to a maximum depth of 40 metres during dives that do not require staged decompression. We often teach it with the TDI Decompression Procedures course.
The deco pro course is the foundation course for all stage decompression diving. As recreational divers planned decompression is not something that we do or have been taught; the TDI Deco Pro course prepares you for just this. Among the topics covered are: deco techniques, deco breathing gases, gas management, contingency planning, problem solving procedures.
Extended range is the pinnacle of Air/Nitrox diving. This challenging course teaches you the proper techniques, procedures, risks and hazards to plan and perform accelerated staged decompression dives to 55m. The course also covers advanced diving physics, physiology and decompression theory to give a full understanding of all aspects of diving utilising air and Nitrox.
Entry level trimix is the first step into helium based diving. Helium based diving reduces the effects of narcosis, allowing you to dive at deeper depths and qualifying you to utilise non hypoxic (minimum 18% O2) trimix mixtures to perform accelerated staged decompression dives to 60m and finally dive the Arch at the Blue Hole.
Advanced Tmx qualifies you to use helium to do accelerated staged deco dives to a max of 100m. It is the top level of training for the Open Circuit diver and is perhaps one of the most informative and challenging courses resulting in you being among some of the most elite divers below the water.
TDI Gas blender/Advanced Gas blender course provides the training required to allow you to competently and safely blend Nitrox and Trimix After covering academic subjects including responsibilities of the gas blender, oxygen handling and gas production equipment and oxygen analyzing, you will demonstrate proficiency in blending nitrox.
