Just what is rebreather diving?
You may have heard this type of diving referred to as "Closed Circuit" or "bubble free" diving. This means that a diver is using a special underwater breathing system that recycles the air that the diver exhales by scrubbing it of carbon dioxide, allowing the diver to dive for a longer time using only a small amount of new gases.
The rebreathers also typically blend the diver's gas mix on the fly, allowing them to breathe different mixtures of air and oxygen (or other gases) depending on depth. For this reason, they are ideal for technical diving and cave diving, but are also growing in popularity for recreational divers.
Why dive with a rebreather?
Rebreathers offer many advantages for the recreational and technical diver, including:
- longer no decompression times
- low gas consumption
- bubble free which allows photographers to get very close to aquatic life
- requirement to carry fewer stages and pre-mixed gas blends for technical diving
- quiet, peaceful diving with no noise from exhalations.
