Add Helium, currently located in its 6000 sq. ft. facility by the Fort Lauderdale executive airport, is a diver’s toy store with rebreathers on display, a retail center, classrooms, a state-of-the-art service center, a mixed gas fill station and more.
In 2005, Peter Sotis followed his passion and founded Add Helium, recognizing the special needs rebreathers posed for divers. Peter chose not to follow the standard, industry dive shop model. He created an entirely new business model in an effort to meet the needs of the growing rebreather market. Add Helium’s world-renowned leader in rebreather training, service, and retail facility. Add Helium’s success speaks for itself.
Add Helium’s specialized focus on rebreathers gives the Add Helium management and employees a unique perspective on the diving experience combined with their unmatched rebreather and diving proficiency. Add Helium frequently dons the name “the rebreather purists” throughout the dive industry.
Along the way, Add Helium acquired TheDecoStop.com and RebreatherWorld.com forums, while developing the unique dive-planning app, “TruDive”. The company also created Oncourse the worlds first rebreather-only education program and participated in the creation of the non-profit diving organization known as T.R.E.R.O.
Advanced forms of diving require an organized, professional, disciplined and immaculate environment. It’s no wonder Add Helium has trained more rebreather divers and sold more rebreathers than any other company. As we continue to lead the industry in all things rebreather, we advance our services, reach, and value to the diving community.
