Ocean Pro Divers in Koh Lipe with support from Dive Supply and Kiwidiver Rebreather Instructor Trainer Kevin Black hosted a PADI Recreational Rebreather Try Dive event in October 2012.
Over 30 people got to try the rebreather on the local reef over the two day event with many people convinced that bubble free diving was the way of the future.
The weather was a little overcast with occasional light showers (very unusual for this time of year) but still everyone got a 10-15 minute dives on the reef under the watchfull supervision of Kiwidiver Rebreather Instructor Trainer Kevin Black.
Many of the divers were instructors or dive professionals themselves looking forward to the introduction of rebreather courses in Koh Lipe.
Courses are now available through Ocean Pro Divers in Koh Lipe making Ocean Pro Divers the first Rebreather Center on Koh Lipe. Ocean PPro Divers have Scrubbers, O2 sensors and Poseidon Rebreathers available in their dive center and can boost O2 to 200 bar with Koh Lipe's first boster pump.
