Product Description

TDI CCR Air Diluent Deco Diver is the one way for experienced divers wishing to start using CCR for decompression diving with option in using mixed gas diving a (helitrox) diluent.

Using rebreather for technical diving is the way forward. The continuous increase in helium prices are just one reason to switch to CCR diving. The comfort of breathing of warm, moisturised gas throughout the dive makes you less dehydrated and less cold which essential for effective decompression. No more cutting dive short because of reaching turn pressure! With rebreather diving you can enjoy the amazing deep wrecks of Malta (and other places of course) on longer dives.

All rebreathers what we are teaching on are available for purchase as well. The most popular CCR units at the moment are the X-CCR, JJ-CCR, rEvo but see the full list below.

The two options for certification are depending on how comfortable you are on the unit, you can either get certified as Air Diluent Deco diver or Helitrox Diver.
