Rebreather Diver

Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR) used to be only 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, reduced gas consumption because you reuse most of your exhaled gas, and unmatched wildlife encounters because you don’t release annoying bubbles. The PADI Rebreather Diver course introduces you to rebreather diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet and lets you experience things you never imagined possible as a scuba diver.

Advanced Rebreather Diver 

If you’re interested in rebreathers for their silence and maximized 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/130 feet. If you aren’t a certified rebreather diver yet, no problem, you can combine the PADI Rebreather course with Advanced Rebreather Diver course, please contact us for details

Prerequisites

  • 18 years old

  • Certified as PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent qualification

  • Certified as PADI Rebreather Diver* or equivalent qualification (If the diver was certified as a PADI Rebreather Diver using a different rebreather from the one that will be used in the course, the diver must complete the PADI Rebreather Qualifier program for the new rebreather.)

  • Have a minimum of 30 logged dives

Content

Through self-study and instructor-guided sessions, you’ll learn about scrubbers, oxygen consumption and bailout requirements, including how to configure a bailout cylinder system. Because rebreathers vary significantly, you’ll also study the manufacturer’s literature for the type of rebreather you’ll train on. During one confined water dive and four open water dives, you’ll practice bailout and other emergency procedures, as well as planning and executing deep rebreather dives.
