Rebreather diving, also known as CCR diving, is the use of rebreather equipment, which enables the diver to breathe a continuous stream of air. Rebreathers are able to recycle diver's expelled air by eliminating the carbondioxide that was exhaled by the diver, so-called "scrubbing", and then adding fresh unbreathed air to the remaining gas. The resultant mixture is than good for a new round of supplying the diver with the air required.

The big advantage of rebreather diving is that recreational divers, but cave and wreck divers, as well as underwater photographers in particular, can practice their activity in silence, as opposed to regular divers, who have to contend with the bubble noise, which also tends to keep wildlife at a distance.
The additional benefit is that no expelled air is left behind in wrecks, caves and other structures dived. In wrecks especially, this air tends o speed up corrosion of metal hulls in particular, but it also disturbs the delicate balance in sealed caves, where exhaled air tends to cling to the ceiling, growing ever-larger with each subsequent visit by divers.
Tioman's Rebreather dive outfit is only one of a very few Malaysia-based training facilities. Tec 40 and Tec 60 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) courses are offered. The island's TEC 60 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) instructor has over 3 decades' worth of experience under his belt. So, you're in safe hands.
TEC 40 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) CourseThe Tec 40 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) course usually takes 3-4 days, depending on comfort and skill level with the Rebreather gear of course. There will be 1 or 2 confined water dives, usually a small section of shallow sea, and 6 open dives. These are all required to complete the course. The TEC 40 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) includes:
- use of the Buddy Inspiration Closed Circuit Rebreather
- rental of standard dive gear if required
- bailout tanks
- all the dives.
Please note that the student manual is not included.
Incidentally, the TEC 40 Closed Circuit Rebreather (CCR) Course offered is similarly structured, but with a few minor differences. For more details, please use below form.
