He is well equipped with a dry suit and also a very expensive Rebreather Jeff, I would say he is a Professional Diver.

Rebreather is a breathing apparatus that absorbs the carbon dioxide of a user's exhaled breath to permit the rebreathing (recycling) of the substantially unused oxygen content of each breath. Oxygen is added to replenish the amount metabolised by the user. This differs from open-circuit breathing apparatus, where the exhaled gas is discharged directly into the environment.

Rebreather technology may be used where breathing gas supply is limited, such as underwater or in space, where the environment is toxic or hypoxic, as in firefighting, mine rescue and high altitude operations, or where the breathing gas is specially enriched or contains expensive components, such as helium diluent or anaesthetic gases.

Rebreather technology is used in many environments:

Underwater:
As self-contained breathing apparatus where it is variously known as "closed circuit scuba", "closed circuit rebreather" (CCR), "semi-closed scuba", "semi-closed rebreather" (SCR), "closed circuit underwater breathing apparatus" (CCUBA - a military term), or just "rebreather", as opposed to "open circuit scuba" where the diver exhales breathing gas into the surrounding water.[1]
Surface supplied diving equipment may incorporate rebreather technology either as a gas reclaim system, where the surface supplied breathing gas is returned and scrubbed at the surface, or as a self-contained diver bailout system.

Trev.

Thanks for the techie data Trev...methinks his altimeter is a little off WinkWink

No..apparently they go diving for Spanish Gold off these shores - rich pickings perhaps? Smile

Don't know what he's clutching, but it's not a Louis Vuitton bag...perhaps he has the bends?
