Discover Rebreather Diving


Philosophy

Discover Rebreather Diving is an experience program for certified divers interested in trying out recreational rebreathers or specific Type T CCRs in controlled conditions. It is open to certified divers at least 18 years of age who have logged at least 15 dives. During this program, you'll learn the differences between rebreathers and open circuit scuba, about the two basic rebreather types and how rebreathers function.

You'll also get in the water for a rebreather dive. During the water session you will learn new hand signals specific to rebreather diving and you'll learn what the rebreather is telling you through the handset, heads up display (HUD) and audible alarms. You'll also discover the differences in buoyancy control while descending, ascending and hovering in a rebreather, adjust the mouthpiece and bail out to open circuit. You'll do all of this in controlled conditions, calm waters of a pool or confined water so you can discover the challenges and benefits of rebreather diving.
