For the last 13 years, Add Helium has remained the first and only Full-Time rebreather facility. But what does that mean for the rebreather student traveling long distances intending to find the best training experience?


We know that others cannot possibly provide the same level and standard of services without the resources that we have accessible for our clients. Add Helium has made it its goal to create the most successful training experience for clients and we constantly improve upon it.


A team of trained professionals, a state-of-the-art facility and a winning system developed from years of experience provide:

  1. Professional advice and timely quotes
  2. Highly trained, full-time rebreather instructors
  3. A rebreather for rent for training
  4. Weekly classes
  5. Return to class for free program *
  6. Advanced training
  7. Clean, comfortable class rooms with advanced A-V systems dedicated for education
  8. Concierge service to help with all travel arrangements
  9. Customer service representative managing all schedules, rentals, paperwork, equipment
  10. On-site service department to service all equipment prior to and during class
  11. On-site parts department to supply gear, rebreather parts and consumables during class
  12. On-site mixed-gas fill system
  13. Group trips dedicated to rebreathers only


We do not train in a quarry or other poor visibility waters that are unsuitable for learning  and do not provide experience for real diving. Florida’s East Coast diving is usually in warmer waters providing good conditions year-round than elsewhere in the United States.


Compare these resources to the usual “one-man band” and it is clear why Add Helium is the industry leader.


*Once you complete a specific class with Add Helium, you may return and take the same class over again for free. This improves retention and also acts as a refresher for those who need it.


As the Add Helium dive team began to explore deeper and further, they were not satisfied with the “status quo” of information. Training agencies and industry experts clearly disseminated outdated and unsubstantiated information.

We all need information based on valid research to achieve optimal dives.

The information you seek, the information we all seek, is here on our site – take a peek and improve your dives.

Coming Full Circle: Diving the O2ptima…again.

Jun 15th, 2015 by admin in Business ,Rebreather Diving

By October of 2007, I had become an Optima diver. Trading in my doubles for a rebreather was a careful decision; one involving research and asking questions. I certainly did not want to buy a “garage made” rebreather and Dive Rite, a major manufacturer of technical diving equipment, was presenting a “factory made” rebreather. Eventually,,
