    Mission Statement

    The Rebreather Exploration and Research Organization utilizes the vast capabilities of SCUBA rebreather technology to explore underwater environments that are too challenging for open circuit diving, researches medical issues as they pertain to SCUBA divers, develops methodologies to address those issues, and educates divers and the public on the medical and exploration findings developed.


    Vision Statement

    The world's oceans comprise over seventy percent of the surface of the earth, yet only five percent has been explored. The underwater cave systems of the world represent even greater opportunity for exploration and research.

    The future of our world, is under the surface.

    We are extremely serious. We are looking to fund our cave and other explorations, as well as expand our database of research. Our Board of Directors are primarily physicians interested in dive physiology.

    Boy my handwriting just stinks! It is all that is left of my parent's dream that I be a doctor myself. When I run into forms that cannot be edited on a computer, like those Florida forms, it is really embarrassing!

    Well, you got the hand writing of a doctor, so not all hope is lost.
