Mixed Gas Diving

Tec Diving in Wastwater

Its been a period of time for most of us with the lockdowns and having to cancel and postpone work and courses etc. I for one had a difficult start to the year with three months of courses cancelled, predominantly my ice diving courses, winter mountaineering courses and my altitude diving courses.

Speaking to a lot of divers, friends, clients and seeing posts that have been put up on various forums etc, there are a lot of people who have had courses cancelled or postponed due to the various issues related to this year’s issues.

As such I have decided to offer Mixed gas courses over the next few months in an effort to help people achieve their ambitions of becoming mixed gas divers. These shouldn’t be affected by specific dive centres being open or closed as I intend to offer them in controlled inland locations where we can get the depths we require.

The intention is to do all the training and skills in three locations to allow training courses in the South, mid and North of the country; namely Vobster Quay, Stoneycove and Capernwray Dive centre. Then for the deep dives, I intend to utilise NDAC for the south and mid, and Wastwater in the Lake District for the north.

With regards to gases, I will supply the trimix (if you’re unable to get it) for the deep dives (at cost), but you will be required to provide any Nitrox and Air fills and bring them with you to Wastwater – most places are currently offering air and nitrox.

Dates will be based around numbers booking onto the courses but I will run the course with a minimum of one person booked on it.

If you’re interested in doing a mixed gas course with me, please have a look at the links below to find out more and reserve your space – or give me a call on 07534 387152. Instructor gas costs are an additional cost to be split between the course participants.

I am a passionate adventurer, loving being in the mountains walking, climbing, scrambling as much as I love being under the water exploring shipwrecks, mines and caverns, or in search of treasure in the depths. My real passion lies in combining mountains and water and as such you’ll often find me either in the mountains altitude diving, or in the mountains ice diving. Both exhilarating and peaceful – allowing me to regenerate the inner me, whilst pushing myself physically and mentally.
