What is Technical Diving?
Why should I do Technical Diving?

Technical diving is essentially where you exceed your NDL (No Decompression Limits) or enter overhead environments such as Caves or Mines. Why? Contradiction to what you may believe technical diving isn't "scary, dark, deep' dives, a good example to use for you will be a dive site many of you will have been to on a Canary Trip, The Mv Karwela Wreck in Gozo! This is a fantastic dive but as you know due to the depth we don't get very long there before having to head back, as a technical diver on this site you could spend a longer amount of time properly exploring the wreck enjoying the dive to its fullest before heading over to the reef to enjoy looking at the fish whilst on your decompression stops, sounds nice eh?

Technical Diving is something that requires gaining substantial experience between each level before moving further and not pushing your limits. Technical diving isn't bounce diving to an arbitrary number to look at a bit of sand for a minute then spend several hours on a line, in fact Canary despise this kind of behaviour as its reckless, dangerous and gives serious misconceptions to what technical diving is. Technical Diving is making some extraordinary dives to fantastic places, along with making the most out of dive sites you already know and love.

The Coronavirus emergency has caused significant issues across the world. Canary Divers managed to remain open until the Prime Minister announced ‘stay at home’. It is only right that we now support the national strategy to be distant until the virus is beaten. It is sad also that all the inland dive sites have closed for the time being.

Please watch out for an email to announce our reopening, or follow us on Facebook, instagram, Twitter and of course our YouTube channel!

We hope you all stay well in this tough time but look forward to diving with you in the near future.

ovbiously any bookings or courses will be honoured and carried forward.


The latest version of the national magazine, Scuba Diver, contains an article about The Youth Diver Network. Canary Divers is foremost in developing the network and we have our own Youth Membership. Recently our Youth Ambassador, Sophie O'Dea gave a presentation to over 200 students encouraging them to get involved as well.


Pool Sessions continued to be very busy during early March, but of course have now stopped as well As many of you know, many participants come to the shop prior to the pool session so that they can meet their trainer, go through any questions about the theory work, look at equipment and even just socialise with other divers.

We were fully booked for every Thursday night!

obviously all of these will be rearranged when we reopen, so be sure to contact us and book onto the waiting list.
