Technical Diving Services

Providing gold standard technical diver training and travel, offering unique tech diving opportunities.

About Black Water Tek

Our mission at Black Water Tek is to provide gold standard technical diver training and travel. We do this by exceeding minimum training requirements on all courses and teaching students to the highest possible standards. Because we actively promote a healthy mindset and physical exercise, students are well informed and prepared before starting.

We aim to provide unique travel itineraries to world class destinations and offer exciting exploration opportunities so that technical divers can put their skills into practice. All technical divers are welcome regardless of gender, race, training organisation or certification level. At Black Water Tek, we work, train, dive and travel as a team.

Training Locations

Most courses in Indonesia are taught on Gili Trawangan but can also be taught in Bali upon request. Both Locations have fantastic reputations and amazing technical diving sites with very easy logistics to support diving and training. Courses are also taught at the world  renowned Team Blue Immersion facility in Dahab, Egypt. They are known for their safety record, professionalism, logistical ease and quality of dive sites.

Because distance is a factor when planning your training we can also come to you. If you are limited on time, or travel is not possible or financially viable for you or your group let us know.

Will Goodman


Will is an award winning TDI Instructor Trainer who teaches the full range of TDI open and closed circuit courses from beginner to Instructor level. He has been teaching technical divers for 15 years and has held several diving records. Most notably a dive to 290m on the JJ-CCR.

Our Affiliates

We are very proud to be affiliated with Team Blue Immersion for conducting open circuit and CCR training. The facility provides a high standard of equipment rental, tanks, sofnolime, equipment servicing, accommodation and transfers. Facilities are clean, well maintained and have dedicated tech rooms for academics and equipment set up. Because TBI is located next to the beach, there are plenty of restaurants and places to relax and explore on non diving days.

In 2020 we will be teaming up with Aron Arngrimsson from The Dirty Dozen and The Critical Experiment. Aron’s experience and knowledge has provided us with our own unique wreck diving charters to Truuk Lagoon and Bikini Atoll!

We are delighted to be partnered with Bob and the crew from Shakti over the next couple of years. They are one of the first Raja Ampat liveaboards meaning we can offer a truly unique itinerary for technical divers in this phenomenal part of the world.
