Go Under the Sea without Tanks

Forget Finding Nemo! Instead, be just like this cartoon clownfish of Disney fame. That is, breathe underwater without the use of tanks. It’s possible by using the new portable easy-to-use dive system NEMO by BLU3. The company, a subsidiary of the Pompano Beach, Florida-based Brownie’s Marine Group, defines NEMO as an incredibly compact Surface-Supplied Air (SSA) dive system that supports one diver to 10 feet for 60-minutes-plus, thus bridging the gap between snorkeling and SCUBA diving. 

“The ease of bringing NEMO along with you on an adventure is similar to bringing an action camera or a drone,” says Blake Carmichael, BLU3 chief executive officer. “It’s super compact and light, so the hassle of diving with heavy outdated equipment is totally eliminated. You can now feel free to explore more beyond the surface.”

Each NEMO comes with a comprehensive training course to ensure the safety of both consumers and underwater environments. https://diveblu3.com
