Try Diving with Nemo Alongside a Dive Guide at Our Guided Tour Location in Florida
Dive Deeper with Nomad
Nomad is a battery-powered tankless diving system that floats on the surface like a buoy and delivers you compressed air through a hose as you breath underwater to a maximum depth of 30 feet. Battery run time is typically about 45-60 minutes and spare batteries can be swapped in for extra dive time with ease.
Nomad is extremely user-friendly and portable. You can even fly with it! Travel around and explore the underwater world with Nomad, hassle free.
Take Nomad On Your Next Adventure
Compact and lightweight, Nomad offers everything you want from a portable dive system. Now you can explore deeper, without the hassle of coming up for air every few minutes. Nomad is for experienced divers who want the convenience and simplicity of Nemo but the depth performance for diving deeper reefs, shipwrecks and more.
Nomad Is Best For Experienced Divers
Whether you're diving Nemo or Nomad, make sure you take the BLU3 Online Dive Training Course before diving. With a maximum depth of 30 feet, Nomad is best for experienced divers. We strongly recommend diving with a Spare Air (add on from the dropdown) and getting SCUBA certified to further your diving skills.
Similar to Nemo, our Nomad dive system is ultra portable, but allows the diver to explore depths of up to 30 feet.
Fast Battery Replacement
Switching out the Nomad battery takes about 20 seconds and gives you an extra 45-60 minutes of dive time.
Dry Bag Float
The Nomad dive system comes complete with a dry bag float which offers waterproof storage, 40lbs of buoyancy and is visible to boaters.
The Nomad Design
Nomad is a compact and user-friendly diving system, designed and assembled in Florida, USA! Included with your purchase is the BLU3 Backpack, making storage and transportation a breeze.
Tankless diving designed for Experienced divers
Spend more time underwater with 45-60 minutes of battery charge time. Purchase additional batteries and easily swap in to go for another dive.
Designed with Application in mind
Durability is key. Nomad's proprietary air pump withstands saltwater intrusion without damage. All of Nomad's parts are corrosion resistant and simple to maintain.
Designed with safety in mind
Safety is always our priority. Our BLU3 Online Dive Training Course prepares experienced divers for new underwater adventures with Nomad.
designed with quality in mind
Nomad is assembled in Pompano Beach, Florida from raw materials, where we take quality seriously.
The Smart Reg™
What allows Nomad to be so compact, energy-efficient, and responsive is our patented Smart Reg™ – the first of its kind!
Here’s how it works: A silicone diaphragm inside the Smart Reg™ moves when the diver breathes. A waterproofed sensor measures the diaphragm movement – it then sends an electronic signal which triggers the compressor to pump air at exactly the time and speed that the diver is inhaling.
With deeper depths, higher pressure and flow rates are required for diving. Our custom compressor designed by our team in Florida, USA has been customized to fit this application. For example – even if you accidentally get saltwater inside your pump, no damage will be done. Just rinse freshwater through. Don’t try that with any other compressors!
Nomad’s flotation shell surrounding the compressor gives the unit inherent buoyancy without the need for a flotation tube. The flotation shell is rotomolded from hard, durable plastic and filled with foam so that it’s unsinkable. That being said, you should use the Dry Bag Float whenever you dive for additional buoyancy, stability, and visibility.
The Battery Pack
Nomad is powered by a custom lithium-ion battery pack that is swappable and rechargeable. The pack and connector are IP67-rated to handle saltwater environments. It’s 144 Wh, so it is allowed in carry-on luggage on most airlines! A charge-level indicator is located right on the battery itself so that you can always check your battery level. Be sure to grab a few extra packs so that you can dive all day long!
Dry Bag Float
The Dry Bag Float provides buoyancy, visibility, and waterproof storage for dry items. It has two air reservoirs that can be inflated by mouth with ease to provide 44 lb of buoyancy. It’s bright color will help notify surrounding boaters of your location. Store dry items inside the waterproof compartment while you enjoy your dive with Nomad.
The Air Hose
Nomad’s 40-foot air hose is the perfect balance of weight, flexibility, and durability. The coils prevent the hose from kinking and make it super easy to handle. Bungee the hose up for easy storage. (Hose is longer than max depth to allow for more scope, making Nomad easier to tow while diving at max depth).
Take Nomad with you to new dive spots around the world with the BLU3 Backpack, designed specifically to make carrying Nomad or Nemo and the rest of your gear as easy as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions About Nomad Diving
DOES NOMAD FLOAT?
Yes! However, for diving offshore, the included Dry Bag Float is strongly recommended for additional buoyancy and visibility.
WHAT IF NOMAD FLIPS OR GOES UNDERWATER?
As long as the very top of the intake snorkel remains above the water, you will continue to receive fresh air flow from Nomad. The rest of the unit can be submerged. If water does get inside the pump, no damage will be caused. Simply rinse it through with fresh water.
IS NOMAD AIRPLANE FRIENDLY?
Absolutely! The lithium battery used is under the limit and accepted by most airlines in carry-on luggage so that you can travel around the world with Nomad. The Nomad inside its backpack will fit as carry-on luggage, or you can check the unit while bringing the battery as carry-on. Be prepared by bringing your Air Travel Certificate, which you can download here: https://www.diveblu3.com/air-travel-certificates/
DOES THE NOMAD BATTERY LAST LONGER IN SHALLOW WATER?
Yes! If you're using Nomad in shallow waters, you can expect longer run times. And you will be able to coil up the excess hose length neatly so that Nomad stays close by. Note that for diving shallower than 10 feet, you can expect similar or longer run times with Nemo.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN NOMAD DIVING?
WARNING: Nomad uses strong magnets. Magnets may interfere with pacemakers or medical implants. It is advised that persons with pacemakers or medical implants do not use Nomad. Persons with pacemakers or medical implants must stay back at least 2 feet from the Nomad main body at all times.

I couldn’t be happier with you customer service. I ordered my Nomad during the 20% off sale and it arrived missing the 2nd battery without question I was sent the battery overnight. So far I have only used Nomad in my pool but I can’t wait to try in the ocean.
Great reliable setup for searching for underwater treasure. Provides plenty of air and is very travel friendly. Other competing systems I have looked into are taking air in from the same compartment as the battery and if they even ingest water they will shut down with most likely Permanent pump/battery damage. Definitely not safe when your life is on the line. Blu3s batteries are separate and under the unit. The pumps are custom made to handle water and will pump the water out without damage. Battery swaps take seconds and with Blu3 being made, shipped, and serviced in the USA its a no brainer. Blu3 and Brownies (building dive systems for 45 years) work hand and hand with each other so you know you are getting the best.
Thank you for your fantastic review! We’re glad to hear that you’re happy with your Nomad and that it’s been reliable in your treasure hunting adventures. We’re proud to say that our products are designed and assembled
in the USA and that we work with experienced partners like Brownie’s THIRD LUNG to provide the best possible dive systems and services to our customers. Thank you for choosing BLU3 and happy diving!

The Nomad for me has been a game changer. I dive for treasure on local beaches here in Finland and the possibility to dive for easily over an hour and just swap batteries within a few seconds and back to an other hour of diving is AMAZING!
Thank you for sharing your positive experience with the Nomad! We are thrilled to hear that it has been a game changer for your treasure diving. It’s great to know that the battery swap feature has made diving more convenient for you. We appreciate your support and happy hunting!

Overall great product. I use it to spearfish lakes in Arkansas because most of our fish are less than 20 feet deep. Mostly brush piles and rocks. I was afraid the noise would scare the fish but from the 8ish times I’ve taken it out, I think it helps peak their curiosity for a little bit. It’s definitely helped me become more efficient at spearfishing so I can sit on moss beds much longer and be more patient instead of rushing a bad shot. On complaint is it definitely tilts in the water towards the battery side but still floats well enough it’s not a problem.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We’re thrilled to hear that the Nomad has helped you become more efficient at spearfishing and allowed you to be more patient while waiting for the perfect shot. We’re also happy to inform you that we’ve addressed the tilting issue you experienced and have fixed the product accordingly. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you continue to enjoy using the Nemo on your future spearfishing trips.

Love my Nomad. I get nearly 60 mins. on the bottom but no heavy tank!! At my age (62) I wanted something mobile, and lightweight, that was simple and easy to get to the bottom. The Nomad does not dissapoint! It works like a charm. Thank you Blu3 team for designing and delivering such an exceptional product.
