The Hollis Explorer is truly designed as a recreational Rebreather. The Explorer is an intelligent hybrid that utilizes the best aspects from closed-circuit and semi-closed circuit rebreathers. It is very compact, only 40 pounds, and extremely easy to use. Certified Rebreather divers will benefit from breathing warm, humid, gas (no dry mouth), bottom times of up to 2.5hrs, and incredible Marine Life interactions as there are very few bubbles.

During your training, you will spend the first night in a swimming pool, learning how to set up the Explorer and get comfortable with the unit. The following 2 days you can expect to complete a total of at least 4 open water dives, of a minimum of 45 minutes each. These dives will take you through the normal operations and abnormal situations that may arise.
