The Poseidon Discovery MKVI recreational rebreather units will also be available for rental to certified users whilst on board our liveaboard diving trips.
"I dive a rebreather and have always had problems finding liveaboards which welcomed me and supported my needs. That is until I found the Siren fleet. From personal experience on two 10 day trips I can assure you they provide full rebreather support and the crew offer that 'extra' service that makes diving a pleasure. We have already booked our next trip on the Indo Siren, with rebreathers of course!" Brian Mecklem, Australia
The combination course from the UWECO training agency, based in the United Kingdom, was written for and designed around the use of the MKVI unit. The course consists of unit assembly and familiarisation, tests and knowledge development, you will then progress onto a "confined water" training session in which basic skills, emergency procedures and self rescue drills are performed under the guidance of your instructor. Upon successful completion of your "confined water" session your instructor will take you for "open Water" dives to a maximum depth of 40m. During your "open water" dives you will be expected to perform the skills you mastered in the shallow water session. After your course you will be able to refresh your knowledge with online tools and receive and "e-ticket" detailing your certification level.

This beginner rebreather diver course allows divers, already certified as PADI Open Water, to train on a fully closed circuit rebreather. The course consists of 2 "confined water" sessions followed by 4 "open water" dives to a maximum depth of 18m / 60ft. Our instructors will show you how to run through the appropriate pre-dive tests that ensure your equipment is fully functional prior to diving. "Confined water" sessions allow you to become orientated with the unit, practice basic skills and emergency procedures that you would have learned during your recreational diver training - but this time using the rebreather! During the "open water" sessions emphasis is placed on skills that will enable the diver to be fully independent from their instructor. The beginner course runs through emergency procedures and buoyancy control developing different techniques than you would have learned for an open circuit system.
