is CCR Rebreather Diving?
Are you ready for the greatest dive innovation since
CCRs open up incredible new worlds for experienced
divers… allowing you to dive silently amongst the wildlife and
explore further, for longer, in greater comfort. From reef to
cave, shore to deep wreck… the advantages are dramatic.
Why dive with a CCR?
You are no longer an intruder or noisy spectator - you’re a
natural part of the sealife around you. Closed circuit
rebreathers give you the freedom and time to dive the way you
always dreamt possible.
The significance of diving with an
oxygen-rich breathing gas is that the percentage of inert gas is
considerably lower. Consequently, the time allowed to dive
before decompression is required – no-stop time – is
At air-range depths these benefits are
huge. Want to take your time on a reef? 3 hours at 20m with
no deco is a realistic dive with the Inspiration
xpd or evp (or about 2.5 hours with the Inspiration evo - due to
the smaller scrubber unit) compared to just 36 minutes on open
Mixing super-nitrox on
the fly - the Inspiration delivers the optimum oxygen-rich mix
throughout the dive. The Inspiration offers all of the
increased depth, time and deco advantages of open circuit nitrox
diving but without the expense, time and hassle of pre-mixing
multiple gases for pre-planned target depths, excessive cylinder
carrying or gas-switching during the dive.
Inspiration CCRs offer
simplified mix gas diving. The oxygen controller
maintains a Constant Partial Pressure of Oxygen (PO2)
in the breathing loop and thereby delivers a variable
fraction of oxygen (FO2) at every depth.
In practice this gives you ultimate
versatility: from shallow reef to deep wreck, the same prepped
unit will automatically deliver the optimum mix at every depth
and a super-O2-rich mix during deco.

We also include at
Technical levels our "Diver First-Aid basic
training in CPR and students may also take our IHMP Medical
Training Courses in BLS Basic Life Support and / or our Oxygen
First Aid training and certification programs.
ITDA divers are trained in basic first-aid included in the
training program, i.e. No extra cost for the basic training, if
you wish to obtain a certification in First Aid your instructor
can arrange this for you at a discounted fee. We also have
As an experienced open circuit scuba diver,
you’ll be very aware that the bulk of your gas is lost, bubbled
away, every time you breathe out / exhale and that this waste
increases dramatically, the deeper you go. With fully closed
circuit rebreathers like the AP Inspiration, all of your exhaled
gas is retained within the system in a closed loop. It is then
filtered, refreshed and recycled back to you to breathe again.
Bubbles escape only during ascent and mask clearing.
All rebreathers require specialist training before
you use them. That’s why AP Diving will only sell
rebreathers to divers who are trained and qualified with an AP
recognised instructor and agency. No matter how experienced or
confident you are on open circuit, you’re starting again with a
rebreather - and you’re always learning.
