Backstage at Galapagos Rebreathers

As we prepare the support for the upcoming rebreather trip with Andy Phillips, Al Schumer, Mike Echevarria and Jorge A. Mahauad our Galapagos "Tip Top" dive & training facility slowly takes shape as well. A photo of the backstage support, gas mixing and rebreather assembly area follow.  




It is a small area, but the market is the same for now; on the other hand, we do have the ability to provide with EANx, Trimix and full technical and rebreather diving support. Our rebreather friendly trip in August will bring more learning and experiences. We will continue posting as everything develops; some very interesting things might come up in the next few weeks. We intend to grow with the market, hopefully slowly but steadily.
