Thailands annual Tec Camp takes started in 2013 and takes place on Koh Lipe Island in the Tarutao National Park in Southern Thailand every year in October based out of PADI 5 Star IDC Center, Ocean Pro Divers. Technical Instructors and Instructor Trainers travel from around the region to conduct a number of PADI Technical Dive courses.
Technical Diving in Koh Lipe gives us access to dive sites not normaly visited by recreational divers including a wreck that sits on the bottom at 45m. There are other deeper wrecks in the area that we continue to look for.
PADi Sidmount diver courses and Tec Sidemount diver courses are becoming common in Koh Lipe with many people completing PADi Technical courses Tec40, Tec45 and Tec50 on Sidemount.
2014 saw the first PADI Rebreather Instructor course conducted by Rebreather Instructor Trainer Kevin Black, with two Instructors qualifying to teach the Poseidon MK6 / Se7en rebreather.
