The PADI Tec 50 Diver represents a high level of achievement. You will have well developed diving skills and be comfortable planning and executing dives up to 50m/165ft in depth with your buddy, using multiple decompression gases as required.
This will open the doors to many exciting dives and opportunities. Right here in Puerto Galera we have a unique and rarely visited outer reef, an ancient submerged geological feature running several kilometers along the cost at 40-55m and having numerous breathtaking spots. Look at our Dive Site map for places like Secret Reef, Markus Cave or the Fishbowl for what you might be able to visit now. Tech Asia also organizes trips to places with incredible shipwrecks in this range. Dive holidays of a lifetime such as the HMS Hermes in Sri lanka, or the Japanese Fleet in Truk Lagoon.

At this level you will continue to use a full, standard technical configuration of either backmounted double tanks, or of Sidemount if you are qualified to do so or wish to combine your training with a Tec Sidemount Diver course. You'll be adding an extra decompression tank to your configuration and likely see how to integrate further essentials such as primary lights, or drysuit inflation systems, into your gear in such a way that they don't compromise important basics such as ability to perform gas shares.
