PADI Semi Closed Rebreather Course with Borneo Dream in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia – Customer Feedback

Thanks to Borneo Dream for helping me with the PADI Semi Closed Rebreather course during my holiday in Kota Kinabalu. No regrets in doing it – especially when you experience the sea life really close up and not spooking them with bubbles.

I just want to say that I had a fantastic week diving with you guys and had a great time doing the Semi Closed Rebreather Course on the Drager Dolphin. Read the rest of this entry »

PADI Semi Closed Rebreather (SCR) Course, Drager Dolphin, Rebreather Training, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia

Congratulations to Chris Loh who became a certified PADI Semi Closed Rebreather diver with Borneo Dream this week using a Drager Dolphin! The course involved three course dives over two days in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, TARP, Sabah, Borneo. Chris also enjoyed a fourth leisure dive on the Drager Dolphin following the course.

The Drager Dolphin

The Drager Dolphin

The Drager Dolphin unit uses a 5 litre cylinder in standard configuration filled with Nitrox / enriched air of mixtures from 32% – 60% (depending up on the dive profile). Chris achieved two 70 minute dives and used 140 bar out of his 5 litre cylinder. Using an integrated Delta-P VR3 with an external oxygen cell it was determined that Chris had a metabolic rate of 0.7 litres per minute. The unit weighs the same as a standard 80 cuft. scuba diving cylinder.
