WDT is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 2011. The main purpose was to organise a technical diving convention in Belgium . We have done this four times now and we are already very busy to get the fifth edition - Tekdive 2019 - on track .

WDT also organises the "Wreck & Tek Events" and has published three very well received diving books :

The first one was recently translated in English and published as 'Diving for Treasures' by Whittles Publishing from Scotland.

WDT also frequently organises and participates in diving expeditions to unique diving locations.Articles about these endeavours are published in diving magazines all over the world.The WDT members are also available for lectures about diving locations that they explored over the years like caves, ship wrecks, abandoned mines etc ...
