Technical diving in Koh Lipe Thailand

Tec Camp 2014 was a huge sucsess with Sidemount courses, Tec Courses, Rebreather courses and Instructor courses completed. As well as some fine diving.



Tec Camp Thailand - October 2015

Tec Camp Thailand 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.

Koh Lipe Diving courses are conducted on open circuit back gas, Sidemount and on CCR / SCR Rebreathers and from beginner levels to Instructor Levels.

If you wish to conduct a bunch of different training courses together this is the perfect opportunity to do so. For Example if you wish to do PADI Tec 40, PADI Tec 45 & PADI Tec 50 together you can do so. And if you are a PADI Instructor you can go directly onto complete PADI Tec Instructor. And if you want to do PADI Tec Sidemount you can combine it with the other courses and just add an extra day at the beginning of your diving in Koh Lipe.

Or if your goal is PADI Tec Deep Instructor then this is a perfect opportunity to combine the required course assists with your Tec Deep Instructor Course.

With CCR and SCR rebreathers from Ambient Pressure Diving, Hollis and Poseidon there is the opportunity to do either diver level CCR rebreather Courses or PADI Rebreather Instructor courses. And if you are trying to get your hours up on one of the units to do an instructor course then there is an opportunity to rent units and get your dives up to the required number.

Whether it is Sidemount diving, Technical diving or Rebreather diving, the Thailand Tec Camp in Koh Lipe has something for everyone from beginner levels to Instructor levels.

As these courses require a lot of logistical support and many people want to combine courses advanced booking is necessary to avoid disappointment. There are only so many places available on each course.

Course schedule and bookings are coordinated by Kiwidiver in Phuket on and accommodation can be booked or arranged by Ocean Pro Divers in Koh Lipe on
