Why dive a rebreather?
Rebreathers used to be only for technical diving, but not any more. New Type R (recreational) rebreathers are lightweight, easy-to-transport and have sophisticated electronics to simplify their use.
You get longer no stop limits, reduced gas consumption because you reuse most of your exhaled gas, and unmatched wildlife encounters because you don’t release annoying bubbles. The PADI Rebreather Diver course introduces you to rebreather diving to a maximum depth of 18 meters and lets you experience things you never imagined possible as a scuba diver.
What will you learn?
Through self-study and instructor-guided sessions, you’ll learn how rebreathers work and the importance of proper setup and maintenance. Because rebreathers vary significantly, you’ll also study the manufacturer’s literature for the type of rebreather you’ll train on.
During six dives, you’ll work on:
- Performing proper pre dive checks.
- Developing the habit of keeping the loop closed when the mouthpiece is not in your mouth.
- Doing bubble checks, bailout drills and handling other potential problems.
- Fine-tuning buoyancy control.
- Monitoring displays and gauges.
- Post-dive procedures and disassembly.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice. Only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
We don’t pre schedule courses. When ever there is a person or a group interested in taking a course, the instructor will get the person or group together and make a schedule that works for everyone. It is always better to make a reservation a few days before if you wish to stay in the hotel or if you have a tight schedule, especially in high season (May – October).
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any transportation services between local hotels and our diving shop. Guests are required to come to the shop to check-in for their scuba dive course.
To reach Seahorse Dive Center, you can take the Metro 2 Red Line to the terminal Elliniko station. Then you can take the bus 171 and alight at Kyprou bus stop. The diving shop is across to the bus stop. Also, at the metro stations are the ticket machines (and ticket staff) where you can purchase your all transport Athena Ticket.
Alternative, you can check map directions in google maps.
