Diving with the Hollis Explorer Sport Rebreather in Phuket

Hollis Explorer Rebreather

Available PADI courses: Diver Level | Advanced Level | Instructor Level

Kiwidiver is the first PADI Rebreather Center in Thailand to get the Hollis Explorer recreational rebreather. The Hollis Explorer is a compact, lightweight and easy to use single gas Rebreather. The Explorer is registered on the PADI Unit Register as a Type-R Recreational Rebreather.

The Explorer is the first single gas rebreather to electronically control the PPO2 with only a single supply gas of Nitrox 32-40% giving you an extended bubble free dive time while eliminating the logistics of obtaining oxygen fills.


The Hollis Explorer Sport is also the first Type-R recreational rebreather registered on the PADI Unit Register to have the option of either pre-packed absorbent cartridges or a re-packable cartridge. It was also the first Type-R rebreather to introduce an optional CO2 sensor.

Hollis has obviously thought about making this rebreather suitable for travelers or liveaboard operators who want the benefit of rebreather diving without all the logistics of O2 filling and scrubber packing.
