SCUBA FORCE was founded and is owned by two highly experienced well-known European technical divers.
Tom Jaspers began his diving carrier in the mid-seventies. Today he has over 40 years of diving experience and holds Instructor Trainer ratings for all major technical training agencies (TDI, IANTD, ANDI).Tom´s passion is cave diving and he is one of the pioneers in cave exploration using sidemount CCR. Over the decades Tom has had some spectacular cave explorations, one of the best which he likes to mention is a 2-kilometer cave penetration dive in the St. Sauveur in France and a depth of 190 meters.
Horst Dederichs began his diving carrier in the early nineties and has over 29 years of diving experience. His deepest dive is 145 meter and with two decades of wreck expeditions leadership, Horst is one of the advanced technical divers in his field. Horst has written many different books on technical, wreck diving and wrote the TDI training material in German. Diving the wreck “RMS Lusitania” was one of his top diving experiences.
Nearly all of our diving expeditions were documented by German television. Some of which can still be seen today via youtube. (see links in the video section)
Such deep wreck or cave exploration needs specialized equipment which at that time was not on the market.
In 2003 we founded dive2gether.net the company behind SCUBA FORCE. In the early years we focused on the German speaking markets, today our distribution network is worldwide.
