Scuba diving is one of the most relaxing and rewarding things one can do. In scuba diving we normally have 3 sub sections. Recreational, Technical & Professional.
Recreational diving is normal fun dives where we stay within safe tested limits. With training the absolute limit for recreational diving is 40m and time for a dive is determined by our depth. The deeper the dive, the shorter the total bottom time. Recreational diving uses compressed air or enriched air blends with a mixture of 21 - 40% oxygen and the rest made up of nitrogen and trace gasses.
In technical diving (tec diving) we now start exceeding the limits of recreational diving and it is not for everyone as it comes with added risks and responsibilities and more expensive gear. Technical diving differ from recreational diving in terms of depth, bottom time and/or type of diving. Cave diving, is for instance, a type of specialised technical diving, where the depth and time might be within normal limits. Technical diving uses compressed air, nitrox or Trimix with a mixture of 21 - 100% oxygen and the rest made up of nitrogen and/or helium, but some dives even require us to have Trimix gases with less than 21% oxygen.
Professional diving is basically when we work as Divers, Divemasters or Dive Instructors in a commercial setup. But for us in the recreational and technical diving industry it basically refers to when we do our divemaster and instructor ratings.
