INTRODUCTION

Rebreathers are quite simply, the future of diving. They allow for extended dive times and an interaction with the aquatic environment that cannot be witnessed while on open circuit systems. Unlike open circuit, rebreathers recycle exhaled gas allowing for optimised use of the gas that is carried by the diver. Because of this, there is a minimal amount of bubbles exhaled, thereby allowing an interaction with fish life that is seldom, if ever, encountered on open circuit. The Hollis Explorer Electronic Semi Closed Rebreather is designed for the sport recreational market 0 – 40 metres/132 feet.
