The entirety of our dive team responded positively towards the induction of COBRA rebreathers.

In particular, they emphasised the benefits of an extended emergency breathing gas supply, the ability to test the COBRA system at any time, and the apparatus’ ease of use with regards to weight, all making it easier for them to feel safer as they conducted their dives.

I was exceptionally impressed with what you achieved in the exercise and it was clearly evident that a strong sense of teamwork had been developed.

Speaking to international observers, they were unanimous in their praise for the exercise and the value they all got out of it, a job exceptionally well done.
