PADI Tec Explorer day in Koh Lipe
Want to try cutting-edge dive equipment and learn about rebreather technology? The Discover Rebreather program is your opportunity to try a recreational rebreather or a technical Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) in controlled conditions.
The program is open to certified divers at least 18 years of age who have logged at least 15 dives.
During the program, you'll learn the differences between rebreathers and open circuit scuba, about the two basic rebreather types how rebreathers function.
You'll also get in the water for a rebreather dive. Your PADI Rebreather Instructor will show you new hand signals specific to rebreather diving and you'll learn what the rebreather is telling you through the handset, heads up display (HUD) and audible alarms.
You'll also discover the differences in buoyancy control while descending, ascending and hovering in a rebreather, adjust the mouthpiece and bail out to open circuit. You'll do all of this in the clear, calm waters of a pool or in pool like conditions.
Optional Beach dive (weather permitting)
If you enjoy your pool training experience and seem to master the basic control of the unit you have the option of an additional dive at one of our local beaches so you can discover the new challenges and benefits of rebreather diving.
The Discover Rebreather program is an ideal opportunity to learn about this emerging technology.

This is an ideal opportunity to experience a short try dive on a rebreather and see what all the fuss is about.
