PADI / DSAT Tec Trimix Diver Course
For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix. The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course takes you to the outer edges of technical deep diving, opening the door to pristine dive sites few divers ever see. 

About the PADI/DSAT Tec Trimix Diver Course:

  • The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range available to technical divers trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres/165 feet in open water.
  • The DSAT Tec Trimix Diver course is intended for technical divers certified as DSAT Tec Deep Divers (or qualifying certification from another training organization).
  • The course extends their depth range capabilities by training them in the use of trimix (helium, oxygen and nitrogen). 

Specific equipment requirements apply:

  • All dives will be made utilizing doubles with an isolation manifold and, on later dives, decompression cylinder(s) for required deco stops including a 20ft. stop and shallower on 100% oxygen.
  • Participants must utilize a standardized Technical Equipment Configuration as outlined in the DSAT Tec Deep manual.
  • Participants must consult the Huron Scuba technical instructor prior to making any equipment purchases to make sure you get the right equipment the first time.
  • Dry suits are highly recommended - rentals are available for those with appropriate training.
  • This course utilizes helium mixes, enriched air and oxygen. Gas (est. $450) and charter boat costs are separate.
