A complete Pathfinder rebreather starts at $8000. usd. There are also several upgrade options that you can add to your unit such as a BOV or Shearwater Petrol computer. We are an ISC Dealer so feel free to give us a call and we can answer any questions or purchasing options.
The cost for a complete and ready to dive Megalodon 2015 rebreather is $9645. usd. There are also several upgrade options that you can add to your unit such as $125 extra for steel 2L or 3L tanks, a BOV, Radial Scrubber, or Shearwater Petrol computer. We are an ISC Dealer so feel free to give us a call and we can answer any questions or purchasing options. Also check out the BUILD A MEG on the ISC Website to see what your options are!
The Megalodon CCR training costs $2000 usd plus your expenses and the instructor expenses will be split between all students (typically $250 each). It’s a minimum of 5 days but can be up to 7 days long. You may be able to find classes that are a bit cheaper and faster, but at the end of our course you will be well prepared for real world diving. The more time we spend together training on the Meg the more confident you will become as a CCR diver knowing more about your rebreather. Becky’s training is molded directly off of ISC’s owner Leon Scamahorn’s class structure, and it is truly an in depth immersion style class. Feel free to talk to any of our past students to get an idea of what the class will be like and Becky’s training style. We don’t believe in doing the minimum. We believe in making strong, confident, and safe CCR divers that we can continue diving with in the future!
The ISC Megalodon rebreather is a battle tested machine! Becky has been diving it in remote locations all over the world for 8 years, and it has kept her in business continuously! Becky & Dave count on the Meg when shooting for clients, and it has not disappointed.
The Meg also has a counterpart, the Mk-28, Mod 0, which is the first mixed gas rebreather in 30 years to be approved by the US Navy! Both the Meg and the Mk-28 have undergone serious testing!
The Megalodon is not only the approved unit for the NAVY, it’s also used by NOAA, the FBI and has a CE rating.
Not only that, but can any other manufacturer’s rebreather do this? Watch this video and decide for yourself!
