PADI divers successfully passed their Technical Training Dive Tec 45 certification on Sunday, May 20, 2012!!!

DSAT Tech 45 divers in South Florida

Our four students completed their Tec 45 certification at “Hole in the Wall”.  This dive site bottoms out at a depth of approximately 140ft at the hole where divers can swim through in search of Goliath groupers. This technical training dive required students to use doubles and a stage bottle while completing the dive. Next on their agenda is the DSAT Tec 50 class beginning in June.  Shortly afterwards they will move on to Trimix!
