Technical Diving & Training
Once considered an extreme activity reserved only for a fringe set of explorers and adventurers, technical diving has grown in popularity since the ‘90s and has become mainstream. However, technical diving is not for everyone. Aside from an advanced skill set, it also requires a certain mindset. How do you know if you have got it? Simon Pridmore offers insights into what makes a good technical diver.
In 2023, Your Buddies on Bonaire are back with a new edition of Operation CCR.
During the most significant technical diving event in the Caribbean, our guests enjoyed demos and tryouts with the newest equipment, presentations from renowned names in the industry, and lots of exciting and fun tec dives.
The purpose of the scientific and trade-only meeting is to advance the diving community’s state of knowledge regarding rebreather technology and its uses, with the goal of improving rebreather diving safety and performance. Proceedings of the meeting will be published and made publicly available.
Thermal issues affect the comfort, performance and decompression stress experienced by divers. The impact varies with the timing, direction and magnitude of the thermal stress. Thermal protection can be provided by a variety of passive and active systems. Active systems should be used with particular care since they can markedly alter inert gas exchange and decompression risk.
