Tec Diving Utila is the technical diving facility of Deep Blue Divers and is also PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center. We offer experienced technical divers and those wishing to start their technical diving experience the opportunity to dive the deep waters around the Caribbean island of Utila, using the latest Dive Rite equipment and DSAT Tec Rec educational courses. We provide all mixed gases and are Rebreather friendly.
Technical diving around the island of Utila consists of multiple Deep Walls, as we are situated on the edge of the continental shelf, along with numerous Sea Mounts ranging from 10m/33’ to 60m/200’ and deeper. The water temperatures are usually 26-30 C / 80-90 F with great visibility and there are usually no significant currents on most of the dive sites. The deep waters around Utila are virtually unexplored and many different locations are being researched ready for diving.
Technical courses are taught using DSAT Tec Rec training programs which will give you the necessary knowledge, skills, practice and opportunity to dive our great sites well outside the recreational range. Add to this the chance to join us on exploration dives to previously unvisited sites as part of the challenge.
We provide courses and programs accommodating the novice or experienced technical diver. Courses are conducted from Deep Blue Divers shop in the main town of Utila or from our private resort depending on class sizes and accommodation preferences.
