"These posts originate from lessons learned during the development of rebreather travel in the Galapagos, and through studying other's experiences. "

Galapagos Rebreathers is a firm that has pioneered in developing rebreather diving in the Galapagos since 2010. Over almost two years, we have successfully supported over 5 different rebreather friendly live-aboard trips and one major film project with a total of 10 rebreather divers who have performed over 300 hours of completely safe, professionally supported and rebreather supervised diving.
We work in affiliation with the most renowned rebreather diving professionals and instructor trainers in their regions. Before we started this, rebreather travel to this world class destination was nearly impossible. There was also no repository for the lessons learned about the particular conditions that could make diving in such a special destination safer. I’m glad to say this is no longer true.
At this time, Galapagos Rebreathers is the only firm actively offering rebreather support for people who want rebreather travel opportunities to the Galapagos Islands and I am the only active CCR professional in the region. Sharing knowledge about the lessons learned and particularities of diving rebreathers in Galapagos might be counterproductive from a commercial standpoint but is cumbersome in the face of preventing accidents.
For those who know me, you probably know I am someone with a positive and corrective approach. With this in mind, I have developed a series of posts to be published in this blog during the next few days. These posts come from lessons learned either by me and my companions while developing rebreather travel in the destination or from the study of what others have experienced here.
You are welcome to follow this series of posts by using this tag. First post will be posted tomorrow. Stay tuned.
