I have just returned to the UK from a 3-week trip to TEKGURU in Sharm. After completing my inspo vision course with Aaron “The sarcastic" Bruce for week 1, and then 2 weeks of just gaining hours on the unit. This was the best 3 weeks of diving ive ever had. The unit rental, gas, lime and everything else, was so cheap to rent, and for everyone who knows Aaron, of course the sarcasm came free, well so he liked to remind me at every change he got.

It was not like a course, it was more like 3 weeks of just diving with an old friend. Aaron spent the entire 3 weeks taking me through the course and then teaching me how to dive on a CCR afterwards. I would recommend to any one thinking of going to the "dark side" and going CCR, to do it, you will never look back. TEKGURU really is the best tech diving one stop shop. You will not regret paying him a visit. I will be booking a further 3 weeks for the summer, i hope to see everyone there.

Just got back from a great weeks diving with Tekguru in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. These guys are really accomodating; they provided the lime, tanks (inc 7, 10 or 12L bailout), 02 (to 200 bar) and helium. Since there was another trimix rebreather diver there, they just let us do our own thing; we just gave the divemaster our plan, and jumped in first, and got picked up after all the OC divers - 2hr dives, no problem. We managed to do the wreck of the Lara (complete with Grey Reef Shark), Thomas Canyon and deep walls in Ras Mohammed. Best weeks diving I've had in ages. Highly, highly recommeded. Thanks Aaron and Werner Lau - I'll be back soon :)

I have just spent 4 weeks with Tekguru doing my Insiration Vision then Pelagian cross-over with Aaron Bruce. Aaron realy knows his stuff! Both the theory and practical work are carried out in a relaxed but thorough manner and I left feeling confident that I have had an excellent introduction to the world of CCR. And will return for more as my experience develops.

I last visited Sharm about 20 years ago and it is still great diving - to the extent that I now have suspecte RSI of my shutter relase finger.

The team at Werner Lau where Tekguru is based went out of their way to make us welcome on the day boat trips giving expert guidance and briefing whilst allowing us to plan and execute rebreather friendly dive profiles - 2 hours on teh Thistlegorm! They are a diverse bunch of nationalities who conduct themselves in a thoroughly professional manner but at the same time are great fun to dive with.

I can unreservedly recommend Tekguru and Aaron Bruce as a rebreather training facility and his set up withing Werner Lau as 'Rebreather Friendly' in every respect.

I recently visited Sharm and spent 10 days on a CCR course ran by Aaron Bruce at Tekguru a new organisation located at the Werner Lau centre.

The centre is professionally run, not only from a technical diving perspective but also manages to blend the fun and friendliness with the recreational side particularly on the boat trips. All the dive guides, without exception, included us on everything and were extremely friendly.

On one day we did a two hour dive on the Thistlegorm and saw absolutely everything, this was probably one of my best CCR dives ever!

The centre You have the confidence you are learning and applying skills from experts who know their units inside-out. Aaron is incredibly knowledgable and the location is ideal to expand one's CCR experiences. Tekguru definitely has my vote, and I look forward for them to open other centres around the world.

Thanks Aaron......
