Designed to appeal not only to the growing body of existing technical divers but also to all those qualified leisure divers considering the next step in their evolution, TekDeck made a big impact at last year’s Dive Show.
For DIVE 2017 – over the weekend of 21/22 October – TekDeck coordinator Mark Powell has lined up an array of technical instructors with long experience, all happy to share their expertise.
Topics covered will include kit configuration, solo diving, CCR maintenance, communication skills, ascent techniques, sidemounts for caves/mines, gradient factors, shutdown procedures – and the Inspiration, Sentinel, SF2 and JJ CCRs.
The TekDeck stage will be located right beside the Dive Show TekPool where this year instructors from L.P. Diving will be laying on an enhanced range of rebreathers and other new tek-diving kit for visitors to try out.

And for those with training as well as travel in mind, experts from the likes of PADI, BSAC, SSI, SAA and IANTD will be offering guiding hands throughout the weekend.
There will also be a free-to-enter draw for all Show visitors to win a Triple-Hotspot Indonesian Dive-Tour worth £7000.
