Extend your open circuit technical diving journey downwards by taking the BSAC Explorer Mixed Gas Diver Course (60m). Building on what you have learnt you'll now learn how to safely plan and dive using Trimix.
Here in Lanzarote we have the ideal locations for technical diving.
Shallows ideal for learning and practicing skills, sending up SMBs and completing planned decompression stops.
Easy entry and exit points to the dive sites, always useful when diving with additional kit.
Plenty of easy access dive sites in the 30-50m range that are ideal for the course such as the Blue Hole pinnicles!
The Sport Mixed Gas Diver Course is aimed at the experienced ADP (Accelerated Decompression Procedures) diver who has logged a good few dives at this certification level and is now proficient diving at this level. You'll have logged some deeper depths in a twinset and now feel comfortable with the equipment, the skills and diving at those depths. In other words you feel ready to take your diving to the next level.
