The scuba that she is using, from what I see above the water, looks to me like an old-type open-circuit twin-hose air scuba, not a rebreather: see twin-hose air scuba . The object on her back looks like a big air cylinder, not a rebreather in a casing . (I can understand the confusion in these modern times when twin-hose aqualungs are not used much.)
Postscript :: Thanks. I read someone saying that to modern eyes an old aqualung's twin wide breathing tubes make it look somewhat like a rebreather.

You are correct, it is a regular twin hose reg on an Aqualung tank. For the story, which is based in a cyberpunk future, she likes vintage diving gear so she had her techie friend, create a special system that would look like the twin hose, but would not release bubbles, thus similar to a re-breather function. I have a rebuilt twin hose reg, that I hope to dive with soon. Glad you notice the details, hopefully you liked the story and the image. Thanks for the look and the comment. Have a great afternoon. :)
