A few weeks ago, took place for the first time in West Africa a TDI course done in internship with 6 students on Poseidon Rebreather.

Fantastic moment of diving in a world totally silent since the rebreather doesn’t do any bubbles nor sound. All level divers who did the course were unanimous that it was easier to approach marine life this way.

It was a revelation for some divers. Some other decided to continue further their apprenticeship by taking the second level of rebreather course to be able to do decompression dives and stay longer in the zone of 30/40 meters deep.

The first level divers were surprised to discover some fish species known for being fearful and to come to them at less then 1 meter distance, all this of course around 20 meters deep.
