Rebreather Dives


‘KEEP IT SIMPLE!’was the primary mission statement while developing the SF2.

As DiveTalia, we are proud to bring you the closed circuit (ECCR) experience. Closed circuit enthusiasts will start this new diving adventure in safe hands with our SF2 Rebreather instructors.


The vision evolved into a purpose, and then into reality. This is obvious at first glance: The SF2 is configured in a very clean and simple manner. SF2 is compact and well-organized in comparison to other rebreathers. The reason for this is that all critical components are integrated into the carbon fiber tube. As a result, SF2 requires much less volume than other rebreathers. Tests and multiple certifications provide a constant high degree of safety while diving. SF2 is ideal for challenging technical dives. It comes in both backmount and sidemount configurations.

Streamlined Style

The SF2 is fashioned cleanly and simply, as if it were designed in one piece. Furthermore, the carbon fiber tube provides the SF2 with a modern, elegant, and high-quality design.

Easy to Build

Because the entire tube can be removed and all the internal elements are easily accessible, the assembly and disassembly of the SF2 is quite simple.

 Unique Positioning of the Counter Lung

The SF2 is differently designed than typical rebreathers due to the special positioning of the counter lung. For other rebreathers the counter lung is mostly located on the chest. The counter lung of the SF2 is situated in the lower tube, in contrast. This results in lower resistance and the perfect position for a diver in the water.

Benefits of Rebreather Diving

Dive deeper: The best nitrox blend at any depth

Stay longer: Thanks to significantly enhanced  ‘no-deco’ bottom timings

Reduced deco: O²-rich deco will bring you out of the water faster.

Extremely low gas consumption: Because consumption is determined by metabolism rather than depth.

Increased comfort: Warm, moist breathing gas

Versatility: Ready-to-go device out of the box, shallow or deep

There is no need for expensive gas-mixing or pre-planning for a target depth.

Breathing has no effect on buoyancy control.

No bubbles, no noise: get up close to wildlife.


SF2 eCCR Try Dive:

Have you heard of rebreathers? Maybe you’ve seen a rebreather or rebreather diver on a boat but aren’t sure what they are, how they function, or why we use them.

Join DiveTalia for a Rebreather “Try Dive” where you will learn the basic principles of how a rebreather operates before diving with one for the first time! Our rebreather “Try Dive” comes with a professional rebreather instructor and all the necessary equipment.

This program will be the first step in introducing you to the world of closed circuit (CCR). You will

receive a comprehensive briefing on the SF2 eCCR prior to the try dive. In this briefing you will learn

how to install, dismantle and clean the SF2 eCCR, how to perform pre-dive and pre-breathe checks

and basic SF2 eCCR skills for your safety.

Participation conditions:

  • Minimum 18 years old
  • Advanced Open Water or equivalent certificate
  • Minimum 30 logged dives


We organize specialized Rebreather (eCCR) guided dive trips along the most spectacular dive sites on Bodrum Peninsula. DiveTalia’s guided rebreather dives are only available for the ones who holds a rebreather certification. If you have your own eCCR, DiveTalia will supply you the tanks, DPV’s (upon request) and an experienced Rebreather guide. If you don’t have your rebreather with you, DiveTalia uses SF2 eCCR in our dive center, you could rent SF2 eCCR in our premises.

Decompression plans and run-times must be within certification limits. Although dive sites are pre-selected according to your request, weather-related changes may occur on the day of the dive. The majority of Bodrum’s diving destinations are between 15 and 30 minutes away by DiveTalia Boat.


  • Having a certification as a Rebreather diver on the applicable unit,
  • Must be able to provide documentation proving rebreather dives within the last 12 months and experience,
  • Follow the Divetalia’s safe rebreather diving procedures as well as  guidelines for checklists, runtimes, gas density, and oxygen exposure.



SF2 eCCR Air Diluent Course

This is a 30 meter entry-level air diluent course for divers planning non-technical dives in mild circumstances. Normal sport diving profiles, but with the extra benefit of more options provided by a rebreather. First step to quiet dive.

During the course you will learn:

  • Evolution of rebreathers over time
  • Comparison of open circuit (OC), closed circuit (CC), and semi-closed circuit (SCR) rebreather systems, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of each
  • Practical mechanics of the SF2 ECCR
  • Gas physiology
  • Proper scrubber packing: in accordance with SF2 manufacturer’s recommendation
  • Design and maintenance of manual or electronic systems
  • Dive tables
  • Dive computers
  • Dive planning
  • Emergency procedures
  • Dive checklists
  • Predive checks

At the end of this course, the diver will be able to dive without decompression at a maximum depth of 30 meters.

Conditions for participation;

  • Nitrox specialty or equivalent certificate.
  • Advanced Open Water or equivalent certificate
  • Needs to be over 18 years of age.
  • Minimum 30 logged dives
  • Course duration is  4-5 days and 7 dives (Minimum 420 minutes SF2 eCCR dive time)

SF2 eCCR Air Diluent Decompression Course

If you are a eCCR Air Diluent Diver aiming to advance upper level, the next step is SF2 eCCR Air Diluent Decompression Course. By keeping a constant partial pressure of oxygen, using the most recent technology in SF2 eCCRs may maximize your gas supply and give an ideal breathing gas for any depth. An SF2 eCCR is ideal equipment for technical divers—it’s like carrying an oxygen blender on your back.

It is a technical training program that takes the skills of closed circuit divers to the next level.

The aim of the course is to gain the ability to decompression dive at a maximum depth of 45 meters.

During the training you will learn planning how to decompress in your rebreather, what type of

bailout you need, how to solve technical problems that may occur during decompression dives and

much more.

Conditions for participation:

  • 18 years of age or older.
  • Have a beginner level eCCR certificate.
  • A minimum of 50 logged dives.
  • Minimum 30 hours of eCCR experience.

Course duration: 5 days

Includes theoretical training and 8 eCCR dives (Minimum 480 minutes dive time)

SF2 eCCR TEC 60 Rebreather Diver

The TEC 60 eCCR course is the second level of technical diving and dives at a maximum depth of 60

meters require multiple decompression holds. Normoxic Trimix is used as diluent (minimum 16% O²).

 This course is your next step if you’re serious about becoming a technical SF2 eCCR diver, even if it is a significant challenge

 During the SF2 TEC 60 eCCR course you will learn about;

  • Bailout strategy
  • Offboard bailout strategy
  • Decompression planning with multiple deco stops
  • Narcosis strategy
  • To be able to cope with emergencies
  • Conditions for participation ;
  • TEC 40 eCCR Diver or equivalent certificate
  • Minimum 50 hours eCCR experience
  • Minimum 10 dives deeper than 30 meters
