 Multitasking Environments

When the term Technical Diving was first spoken, it referred to everything that was beyond recreational diving, such as mixed gas, decompression and rebreathers. There is a wide range of diving activities that can fall into this category, and anyone who is into tech diving may take up more that just one type.


Technically Speaking: The Fine Art of Exploratory Diving
