Closed Circuit Rebreather
Get longer no-stop limits and reduced gas consumption by reusing most of your exhaled gas, whilst experiencing unmatched wildlife encounters, due to absence of noisy bubbles.
Rebreathers are intriguing. They’re cutting-edge dive technology. Always wanted to try one? The Discover Rebreather programme lets you dive with a recreational rebreather or a technical closed circuit rebreather (CCR) in controlled conditions with a PADI Rebreather Instructor. You’ll discover how quiet diving can be without bubbles and quickly learn how different buoyancy control is. A Discover Rebreather experience is an ideal opportunity to give rebreathers a try before you sign up for a full course. Or, if you’re already a rebreather diver, you can participate in the programme to try a new or different type of rebreather.
Rebreathers used to be solely for technical diving, but not any more. New Type R (recreational) rebreathers are lightweight, easy-to-transport and have sophisticated electronics to simplify their use. Why dive a rebreather? You get longer no-stop limits and reduced gas consumption because you reuse most of your exhaled gas. Unmatched wildlife encounters are possible because you don’t release noisy bubbles. The PADI Rebreather Diver course introduces you to rebreather diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres and allows you to experience things you never imagined possible as a scuba diver.
If you’re interested in rebreathers for their silence and maximised no-stop dive time, and are happy to stay within recreational diving depth limits, then the PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver course is for you. This course builds on your PADI Rebreather Diver certification by expanding your knowledge, adding a bailout cylinder and training you to dive as deep as 40 metres.
The Rebreather Qualifier programme allows certified rebreather divers to qualify on an additional rebreather (type R) at either Rebreather Diver or Advanced Rebreather Diver level, depending upon their current rebreather diver qualification.
The purpose of the Rebreather Refresher course is to review and refresh the knowledge and skills of rebreather divers if they have not been diving for a while or wish to update their dive skills.
Advanced Rebreather Duo
Rebreather + Advanced Rebreather combo
The integrated Rebreather Diver and Advanced Rebreather Diver Course is designed for divers with limited time, but who would like to complete both courses . This option reduces the number of open water training dives from nine to seven (saving about a day) without reducing the total dive times or skills.
