PADI Tec Rec

Go beyond the limits: deeper, longer, with more gear!

Technical diving means going beyond recreational scuba diving limits : diving deeper and longer. But Tec divers will tell you that it really is about the challenge of exploring places that no one else has ever seen, as a team. Tec diving is not for everyone, but it does attract experienced divers who are willing to accept the added risks, training, investment and commitment this new adventure demands. Temple Adventures is the only Tec Centre in India - and for us, Tec Diving is more than a challenge: it's a passion.
