Rebreathers

Explore the Silent World of Diving

PADI Tec 40 Rebreather Diver

Rebreathers used to be only for technical diving, but not any more.  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 Tec 40 CCR Rebreather Diver course introduces you to rebreather diving to a maximum depth of 130 feet with up to 10 mins of deco, letting  you experience things you never imagined possible as a recreational scuba diver.
