The are more then 6 trip a year ... from 3 days - 9 days LOB.

You would need to be in the circle of Technical Divers to know about the trip.

Price .... from RM1400 - RM8000

Dont just plan bro, go and get it done & do the dive.

;D

Snafu is right. Some trips are advertised...mostly tech divers grouping will organise among themselves, charter an LOB, pay pro-rata, and do the dives.

Tech divers try to go on as many trips as they can, and as their pockets allow them to. The courses themselves were pocket-killers, ranging between RM1500 to RM4000 each. On Open Circuit alone you start off with Deco Procedures, followed by Extended Range, then Trimix I, II and III. Then there are those who convert to mCCR, eCCR.

Deco gas fill...for a 50% O2 mix in a 80 cu ft cylinder can cost you RM44, and a 100% O2 mix is RM88 every fill. Trimix depends on the type of mix you plan to have. A Normoxic mix of 18/33 would cost you about RM360 per dive. The higher the Helium percentage, the higher the cost.

So if you start tech courses, you better start diving tech a lot. And make sure you have the financial backing to do so.

But you guys must enjoying yourself being deep. I really admire ppl who not only brave enough to do it but also work hard to reduce any possibilities of risk involved.

Promise not to do any breaking records or something... We all still love you here.  

For me same like SKK stick to rec diving.  ;D ;D ;D ;D
