For those with Hypoxic Trimix certification and considerable experience, we have some really special dives for you.
On our Hypoxic Trimix Dive Trip, we’ll be diving up to 75m, or up to 90m if you have the designated depth on your certification and serious experience. One good, long dive per day, our possible dives include:
