PADI Rebreather Diver Course

Closed Circuit Rebreathers (CCR) are redefining how the world dives. Traditionally Rebreathers were only for Technical Divers (Type T Rebreathers.) PADI's Rebreather programs have introduced a new Recreational option for divers to experience lightweight, transportable units that allow longer bottom times, reduced gas consumption, and interactions with aquatic life people have only dreamed of.

CCR reuses air that is normally exhaled in Open Circuit diving. They recycle the air by "scrubbing" the carbon dioxide out of the "breathing loop" and injecting oxygen as necessary to maintain a set point. Recreational Rebreathers utilize pre-packed scrubbers for convenience and safety for the diver. The units are designed to dive within no decompression limits with sophisticated technology that has been simplified for ease of use.
