    looking for a techweek or trustable divecenter where you are welcome alone

    Want to go on holiday in august/september/october. Problem: no divebuddy.
    So I am looking for a divecenter that organises or a week of techdiving where you can join with full trimix dives, or that is trustable to arrange the dives you want (because they have other divers too where you can join, or they just want to organise it for you).
    What I want: deep wrecks 90m and deeper. At least 2 dives over 100m.
    Maybe some caves if that are nice ones. But I prefer wrecks on a holiday. Some reefs are ok too.
    Countries:
    South of France, Northern part of Spain, or northern part of Italy I prefer, then I can go by car. Otherwise I have to take a plane. Then I prefer Egypt or Malta. Turkey is not too expensive too, but I don't know what is possible there with diving.
    Anyone tips?
    The reason why I say this so 'rude' is because I have some bad experiences with a divecenter that promised to organise the dives I wanted to do. Then I booked a flight, came there and the organisation was bad. Or waiting for over 2 hours in a port for a boat to bring you to the wrecks, not the promised deep dives (but they took another group to the wrecks I came for and said to me sorry, it will not fit, but I am a customer too), shorten dives because boat was needed for another group of divers, etc.

    If your prepared to go travel further techthailand still have spaces on a 12 day wreck diving live aboard trip leaving Koh Samui Thailand on August 31st and gets into Singapore on the 12th Sept, all diving with the exception of the check out dive on the 1st Sept will be WW2 wrecks which will include the following USS Lagarto (sub) IJN Shigure (Jp Destroyer) IJN Hatsutaka (Jp minelayer) HMS Repulse & HS Prince of Wales, (GBR battle cruiser and battleship)
    You won't get 100 mtrs max is around 70, they have full OC and CCR support on the boat, very professional operation.
    Cheers

    + 1 for Kaycher, speak to stuart he arranges all depths to suit but you might have to go with the weeks he has for deeper dives etc, he arranges for anything from 45mt to 100+mt weeks, really good set up to.

    Another vote for kaycher. With their new shop with top notch gas blending panel, cat boat with grill and large lift at rear. Great set up and I will be back next year.

    Anytime here in Jordan if you want some nice easy Red Sea conditions, we only have wrecks at 25m 55m and 58m and no caves, but have some great 100m plus dives....all these sites can be visited with our boat as the reef drops of so all are also suitable for recreational divers and snorkellers...We have plenty of tec diving staff itching to do some deep dives...just need an excuse (including me)....I can also buddy on CCR...
    We have sorb O2 and helium...
