Think rebreathers are just for technical diving? Think again because the latest rebreathers are lightweight, easy-transportable units that use sophisticated electronics to simplify their use. Rebreathers allow longer no decompression limits, reduced gas consumption and unmatched wildlife encounters. Now anyone can become a Rebreather Diver.
The PADI Rebreather and Advanced Rebreather Diver courses use Type R units to introduce divers to rebreather diving within recreational dive limits. Type R rebreathers are electronically controlled and provide a back up for all the major systems and simplify training and use.
The Poseidon Mk6 Discovery was the world’s first rebreather for recreational divers and the first to be approved by PADI as a Type-R recreational rebreather for PADI Rebreather courses. It’s a fully closed, fully automated unit that will make you see diving in a different light.
The Poseidon is so simple and safe to operate that it can be used for entry level rebreather diver training, right out of the box. Because the unit has an open circuit (traditional scuba) alternate air system, PADI have set the minimum prerequisite of a qualified entry level diver with some open circuit diving experience.
Since its release other manufacturers Hollis and AP Diving have joined Poseidon producing recreational rebreathers and Poseidon has even introduced a new updated model the Poseidon Se7en with even more features and improvements.
