What is a rebreather? Rebreathers are essentially a gas recycling machine. A rebreather gathers a diver's exhaled air; removes the CO2; adds oxygen; and allows you to breath it again! This means the air stays within the system, rather than being exhaled out as in a scuba system. By "re-breathing" your gas, you are now in a silent, bubble-free environment where you can stay on your dive for a much longer period of time and wildlife will get closer to you than ever before. You will be highly efficient, with reduced gas consumption and your dives will be more enjoyable.
