Recreational Rebreather Course

REBREATHERS AREN'T JUST FOR TECHIES!

PADI Rebreather Diver/Advanced Rebreather Diver is for divers interested in rebreathers for their duration, silence and maximized no stop dive time in open water to 30 metres or less (40 metres with PADI Deep Diver training). These divers are not interested in tec diving and don’t see an interest in the immediate future.

The PADI Rebreather Diver course is an entry-level closed-circuit rebreather (CCR) and semiclosed-circuit rebreather (SCR) course for diving within the accepted recreational envelope (no stop diving, and no overhead envi­ronments) to 18 metres using rebreathers that meet the specifications appropriate for recreational divers.

The PADI Advanced Rebreather Diver continues training for PADI Rebreather Divers who also have the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification, qualifying them to dive to 30 metres.

The massive thing about such programs is that you dont need to carry such a lot of gear and know excessive emergency procedures in order to undertake no stop diving activitives
