What is Technical Diving ?

Technical diving  is a form of scuba diving that exceeds the conventional limits, especially depth and bottom time of recreational diving. Technical diving requires extensive experience, advanced training, and specialized equipment such as rebreathers and twinsets. Technical diving also often involves breathing gases other than air.
