Intro to Closed Circuit Rebreathers is a comprehensive course introducing divers to the fundamentals of Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) diving. This course is very interactive and hands-on, as you will be engaging in classroom demonstrations, and actually building & testing the rebreathers to be used in the pool session. The pool dives will provide you with the opportunity to dive several different closed circuit rebreathers…this is not your typical quickie demo. You will have plenty of time to dive the rebreathers.
Space is very limited in order to keep the class size small. Smaller class size provides YOU with more time to ask questions, and more time underwater.
7-9:30pm, Classroom Seminar
8:30-10:30am, CCR Assembly & Prep
10:30-11:30am, quick lunch and travel time to pool
12 Noon – 2pm, Pool Dives
2-3pm, Cleanup and Debrief
Your instructor Ron Benson has been diving and teaching rebreathers for over 20 years and has traveled the nation to train dive centers, instructors, and divers. He has traveled the world to attend rebreather conferences, and has sponsored CCR specific dive travel from Truk Lagoon to shipwrecks in the Great Lakes.
If you are considering an investment of $8-10,000 in life support for a rebreather, or you simply want to learn more about this technology then join us May 2-3 at the Underwater Connection. Course fee is $80 and covers all classroom, handouts, pool, demo use of rebreathers, CO2 absorbent, oxygen, diluent, and sanitation. Divers only need to provide pool equipment; suit, towel, mask, fins.

And so we bring to conclusion another fun and successful trip! Today we did two dives to round out the week of diving, and believe it or not these were some of the best dives of the week. We headed out to the west end of Roatan where the water was calmer, and did the first dive where we saw two turtles, lots of lobsters and some very healthy coral reef formations.
Today was a huge day for things underwater….including at least one free swimming green moay eel on every dive, three turtles on the second morning dive, lots of lobsters on the night dive, and the highlight of the day/night was a huge toadfish sighting! Plus we go to dive the wreck of the Odyssey, a frieghter in about 100 feet of water.
What a day of fun and great dives! During each of the two morning dives, we again spotted large green moray eels freely swimming over the reef. Other sightings included a scorpionfish, a few lionfish (more on that later) and tons of healthy barrel, tube and vase sponges. Our new divers are really “getting their feet wet” with all the gear assemblies, diving and disassemblies….heck, they're starting to look like old pros!
Today found our group somewhat splintered…at least for the first morning dive. Part of our group decided to take part in the shark dive that is done on the south side of the island at a dive site called Cara y Cara, or Face to Face. This dive is an optional one that many of the dive operators on Roatan utilize not only to bring some additional excitement to each week, but also to prove to those who think that sharks are some man hunting animals that they are wrong, and dharks are some of the nost beautiful animal in the sea. Everyone who went on the shark dive today came back very excited, and many were anxious to see what video and still shots they had captured. Read more
