Default Looking for a rebreather course

Does anyone know where I can attend a rebreather course in the area? I've never seen one advertised, is this something I will probably have to travel to get certified in.

You guys have any expeerience with rebreathers? Thoughts? I understand that the fish are much less reluctant to come around you with the absence of bubbles.

I do realize that it is illegal to spear with one. (At least I think it is, someone told me that).

Thanks,

Chris

I just did a quick search on the FWC site and the only regulations that prohibit rebreathers are on commercial fisherman.

Evensplit, if you offer a course will you supply the rebreathers?

Dan Crowel has been wanting to do a rebreather course here for some time. He teaches on several models. If there's enough interest I'll be happy to get with Dan and set something up. I know he's talked about being able to rent the RB's for the class before, but I'm not sure of the details. He's planning on beng here in Feb-Mar and we can probably arrange another Rebreather seminar as well.

Is it only in federal. or state waters that hunting with one is illegal? Or is it both?

Hey Jim,

Count me in if you guys are able to get a class together. I still dont have a clear understanding of the spearfishing regulations rearding this. Did we determine that you can use a rebreather as long as you are not a commercial spearo?

Didn't a diver die on the O using a rebreather? Are they dependable?

Thanks, Reese
