Advanced Trimix

Advanced Trimix

If you have decided to become a “serious diver” and learn to control your equipment in really extreme situations – come to LakeBaikal. Big depths, transparent waters, convenient relief, open water year around – ideal conditions for tech courses just on Baikal!

Dive center “BaikalTek”, TDI & IANTD Advanced Timix Instructor-Trainer Gennady Misan and Tatiana Oparina Course Director SDI, Trimix Instructor IANTD conduct tech diving training on IANTD and TDI systems. Nitrox, Gasblender, Advanced Nitrox, Decompression Procedures, Technical, Extended Range, Entry Level Trimix, Advanced Trimix, Expedition Trimix – we can do everything!

There are no so many really deep diving instructors and there are less (and noticeably less) who teaches to dive deep in a cold water. Gennady Misan and Tatiana Oparina made his record Baikal dive to the depth of 160 m and 170 m in December; the water temperature was +1 degrees! He often dives to the depths of 100-150 m in Lake Baikal. The tech diving training procedure on Lake Baikal requires full participation of the both the trainer and student. Only in this case one can get the best results. If student performs all necessary procedures in cold Baikal water in a dry suit and dry gloves sometimes in complete darkness you may be sure in his/her high level. Severe conditions are not reasons to decrease minimal requirements of the course. Dives on 55 m in ER course and 100 m dives for Advanced Trimix are still here! And all the dives in a course range are made until good result – the dive made with fun.

Dive center “BaikalTek” has all necessary to conduct training: great instructor experience, necessary equipment (twins, stages, blending system); all necessary gases (oxygen, helium, nitrox, trimix). The team of Technical divers of “BaikalTek” will support the most difficult and deepest dive in your life.
