Rebreather Room
Do you like diving longer, deeper and with less gas? You must be a rebreather diver. If so, this group is for you. Join to discuss the ins and outs of CCR diving with other trained rebreather divers and share your knowledge with those who are interested.

    California Caves Survey Project—Part 2 July 9-14, 2017 Yesterday I posted a little about Bob Ballard’s project to look for signs of early man during the days of the Bering Land Bridge. I showed his exploration vessel EV Nautilus, and the ROVs (remote operated vehicles) being used. Today I am going to talk about the diving. The caves along the paleoshoreline that he hopes to find early man evidence would be about 300 feet deep now. That is too deep to go looking on a hit or miss basis. So he is perfecting his technology using shallower sites. The ASV (automated surface vessel) is deployed to provide high resolution benthic (seafloor) maps. Multibeam shadows or black areas are considered potential caves. Our team of three divers then go down to investigate. If we found openings, we would enter and conduct preliminary surveys, ultimately using the data to draft maps of the caves we explored. Some of the caves were already known, some were new. All of us were using rebreathers.... More

    California Caves Survey Project July 9-14, 2017 Bob Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic in its final resting place, is running this project. This year is the first of a multi-year effort to find early man sites during the time that the Bering Land Bridge allowed humans to cross from Siberia to Alaska approximately 16,000 years ago. At that time, sea levels were hundreds of feet lower than today, as much of the water in the ocean was tied up in glaciers during the last ice age. Since mankind has often lived and traveled along shorelines, their dwellings and signs of their existence would now be hundreds of feet under water. We are using CCRs for diving. Early man also used caves for habitation and shelter. Sea caves are common on the west coast of the U.S., particularly in California. Ballard wants to use underwater robots to find and identify these sites. The this year was to field test technology by identifying similar potential sites using an automated surface vessel.... More

    Cozumel SF2 Rebreather Dives June 8-13, 2017 The clock was ticking.... I needed to log 38 hours on the SF-2 rebreather in order to complete the final requirement for my instructor credentials. And I wanted to be finished by June 20th. Hence, a quick trip to warmer climes, and warmer water... where I could spend 6-8 hours a day underwater without freezing! The trip also provided me an opportunity to visit some dear friends of mine. It had been all too long since I had seen them, and so this journey was special on that account as well. I split my time between diving the shallow water sand beds fringing Cozumel, the walls where those sand beds plunge to the deep water channel, and the caves that I spent hundreds of hours exploring, mapping, and studying....

    Logged my first five with the Cosmiq today. Used s SF2 rebreather. Set the mix at EAN40 so it woukd not lock me out. Will probably use gauge mode tomorrow. ... More
