“If recreational diving isn’t enough, go deeper at Blue Marlin Dive TECH”

Welcome to Blue Marlin Dive Tech:

Located East of Bali and off the North West corner of Lombok. The main headquarters for the operations is based on Gili Trawangan. Other shops are based on Gili Meno and Senggigi, with our latest dive shop opened in Komodo.

This first Technical IDC in December 2013 saw Blue Marlin Dive continue as the leading technical dive school in Indonesia, as pioneered since 1992 by Blue Marlin founder and owner, and accomplished TDI instructor Trainer Simon Liddiard. Five candidates participated in total, four of whom are already employed in the diving industry here with Simon’s diving companies. Since then we have had regular TDI Instructor courses with a 100% success rate and all candidates moving on to full time employment.

2015 has been a busy year with all Blue Marlin Dive Instructors successfully completing a TDI crossover and Nitrox Instructor course with Will. TDI nitrox is now the preferred nitrox course for recreational divers as well as the new techies. No doubt, they will continue to develop their skills and competence under the direction and supervision of our experienced technical gurus Will Goodman and Simon Liddiard. Special congratulations go to Mike Steele, Dan Molenaar, Marco Carraro, Steve Willard and Theresia Gollner.

Blue Marlin Dive is affiliated with Technical Diving International (TDI), International Association of Rebreather Divers (IART) and PADI TecRec. We offer the full range of Nitrox, Mixed Gas and Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) courses as well as Technical Instructor courses to all levels to increase your limits.

Our senior technical diving instructor, Will Goodman, is a TDI Advanced Trimix and Advanced Mixed Gas CCR Instructor Trainer (TDI#11341), IART JJ Level 2 Instructor (IART# IDO0102) and PADI Tec Trimix, Staff Instructor (PADI#622626). He is proud to be one of only 2 IART (International Association of Rebreather Trainers) JJ-CCR Instructors in Indonesia. Will and the Blue Marlin TECH team recently set a new CCR depth record to 290 metres in March 2014.

Check out the articles he has written for Asian Diver Magazine about his record attempt and detailing the process of preparing for such a feat:

Will Goodman CCR World Record

team_image_ccr_world_record_1

On March 26th, 2014, following a year’s training and preparation, Will Goodman, a technical diving Instructor Trainer, and Guinness World Record holder for the longest scuba dive, descended to a recorded depth of 290m using an unmodified, JJ-CCR (closed-circuit rebreather).

At this depth, 3 out of 4 computers stopped registering further, but it is has been confirmed the actual depth was 294m.

Will surfaced after 9 hours and 57 minutes, asymptomatic of signs of decompression illness or dehydration, and was in high spirits.

When asked of the experience at depth, he replied, ‘It was the toughest and most challenging environment I have ever been in. I reached the bottom after a 9 minute free fall in absolute darkness.

team_image_ccr_world_record_2

All computers and depth gauges stuck at 290m, in 10 degree water and strong current. I had high narcosis due to the nitrogen levels in my breathing mix, and HPNS (whole body tremors) from the amount of helium in the mix, contributed to by the rapid descent rate.

 

My hands started shaking and, on ascent, I wondered if I’d make it back, as I began to lose my motor function. I can’t thank the team enough for this amazing opportunity and all their hard work.’

Although not recognized as an official Guinness World Record, due to there being no category for this event, Will has been inundated with well wishes and congratulations from professionals in the diving community worldwide, confirming and accepting his claim that he has bettered the previous record of 283m set by Krzysztof Starnwski

The attempt was conducted through Blue Marlin Dive Gili Trawangan, Indonesia, which provided full logistical and team member support. In-water team members from around the world (pictured, left to right) included: Jeff Anastas, Theresia Gollner, Frank Cella, Jan Schmid, Will Goodman, Jeffrey Glenn and Simon Liddiard.

Trimix Diver

Course Components:

As your motivation to explore progresses you will find that you may want to go deeper to dive that wreck that is part of history or that cave system that you have read so much about. One of the major limiting factors of going deeper is narcosis; TDI’s Trimix Diver course provides the training required to competently and safely utilize breathing gases containing helium for dives that require staged decompression and how to minimize the effects of narcosis by adding helium to offset the nitrogen in your breathing gas. Students must show exemplary in water skills and show good mental and physical fitness.

The course covers topics and skills like:

    •    Dive team planning
    •    Gas matching
    •    Cylinder labeling
    •    Surface marker deployment

About Us

The leading technical dive school in Indonesia

Blue Marlin Dive TECH is a division of Blue Marlin Dive, which is dedicated to providing quality technical diver training, daily technical dive charters, as well as technical expeditions to all corners of Indonesia.

Our aim is not only to provide a conducive environment for training, but a facility where qualified technical divers can actually use their skills to dive the many wrecks and deep walls that the Gili islands and Indonesia have to offer. We feel a gap exists in the dive industry as many places offer technical training to divers but few offer daily guided technical dives and technical live aboard expeditions.

We fill this gap in the industry.

Although we recommend all technical fun divers use their own equipment, we realise there are times that it may not be practical for you to bring everything with you. We have a wide variety of necessary tech equipment available (primarily Apeks and OMS) and we also have a huge variety of tanks available, including 22lt isolation manifold twins, 25 lt. isolation manifold twins, single 11lt, 8lt, 5ltr,4lt and 3lt decompression tanks. All our boats are equipped with emergency oxygen, mobile hand phones and an extra supply of deco gas. We even have buddy evolution, evolution +, and JJ-CCR closed circuit rebreathers for courses, rental and retail as well as a generous supply of Softnolime grade 797 for our rebreather clients.

 


Dive Guidelines

Outside of training activities, diving will be supervised in water (or from surface where deemed appropriate) by qualified Blue Marlin staff. Diving will take place at sites appropriate for the experience levels and certifications of the individuals involved. All decompression diving activities will be backed up by dedicated boat cover equipped with surface oxygen, additional decompression gases as required, and with mobile phones.

We require that all divers plan their dives to comply with the following guidelines:
  • For any dive deeper than 40 metres, or any dive where decompression gases are used, a dive plan must be completed and approved by relevant Blue Marlin staff.
  • All gas mixes MUST be analysed, correctly labeled for MOD and signed and dated by the user. Fill station log must be signed.
  • Maximum bottom PO2 will be 1.5 ATA or lower.
  • Maximum decompression PO2 will be 1.6 ATA or less.
  • All divers must carry sufficient gas to complete their dives within rule of thirds, or as appropriate for the dive plan.
  • On Trimix dives, maximum END will be 40m/130ft.
  • Divers must be equipped with at least one reel and SMB/ lift bag, with two being strongly encouraged. A whistle and flashlight are highly recommended on all dives.
  • All technical divers must provide proof of insurance upon arrival at Blue Marlin Dive.
Divers must carry back up depth and time information.

Blue Marlin staff will reserve final judgment on suitability and choice of the dive site and help you to plan your dives with the latest diving software.

 


TECH Instructors

Location

Our primary facility is based on Gili Trawangan located just off the north-west corner of Lombok, Indonesia. The first island east of the “Wallace Line,” this area represents the greatest marine biodiversity in the world and one of the richest locations for scuba diving. Water temperature is 26 to 30 degrees Celsius all year round. Visability rarely drops below 10 metres with an average of 25+ metres.
