BLU3 is an innovative company committed to developing the world’s most user-friendly line of dive systems to ever float on the ocean’s surface. Our battery-powered surface-supplied air (SSA) dive systems with patent-pending technology are revolutionizing the way people enter the water and experience the underwater world.
Our customers’ well-being is our highest priority. We have about 40 years of experience in the SSA (or “hookah diving”) industry. What most people don’t realize is this method of diving has been around for decades, with very few incidents. Businesses such as Brownie's THIRD LUNG™ and SNUBA have been successful in providing incredible underwater experiences while keeping people safe, and we will too. Here’s how.
The main unit floats on the surface while you dive underwater. Inside of the unit there is a custom battery-powered air compressor. The compressor pumps air to the diver through the air hose and out through our patent-pending Smart Reg™, which saves battery life by monitoring breathing patterns to let the compressor know exactly when it needs to send air. This means it doesn’t just push air to you, but rather breathes with you.
Yes! Although the batteries are lithium ion, they are small enough to be brought in carry-on luggage. The backpack is sized for carry-on luggage as well. Bring this Air Travel Certificate for the batteries when traveling.
Nemo has been designed to bridge the gap between snorkeling and SCUBA diving. It is a compact dive system that supports 1 diver to 10 feet with a rechargeable battery pack that lasts over an hour. Learn more.
Users must be 8 years of age or older to dive with Nemo, but are restricted to diving in a swimming pool only, in water shallow enough so that they can stand with their head above the surface of the water. Nemo users must be 10 years of age or older to dive outside of the pool. Users under the age of 18 must have parental or guardian supervision at all times.
Nemo gradually declines in air flow performance in the final minutes of battery life to gently alert the user that the battery is going to be fully depleted soon. The decline in performance is a signal that it is time to conclude the dive.
The Nemo Battery can easily be swapped out and recharged between dives using the charger that is supplied with the battery, and plugging into a wall outlet. A full charge takes 3 hours. Each battery comes with a charger.
Nomad has been optimized for the 20-30 foot depth range. Nemo’s motor is more efficient in the 10 foot depth range, so if you are diving in 10 feet or less then Nemo will give you better run time. If you want to dive deeper than 10 feet, Nomad is the right move for you.
Users must be 8 years of age or older to dive with Nomad, but are restricted to diving in a swimming pool only, in water shallow enough so that they can stand with their head above the surface of the water. Nomad users must be 12 years of age or older to dive outside of the pool. Users under the age of 18 must have parental or guardian supervision at all times.
As Nomad’s Battery gets closer to being fully depleted, Nomad will begin to sputter with small delays in air flow in the middle of each breath. These small delays will cause a pulsating sensation that will be noticeably different from normal air flow when the battery is fully charged. The pulsating sensation will become more frequent as the battery becomes increasingly discharged. When the pulsating sensation is first noticed, this is a signal that the diver should begin to slowly ascend to the surface and end the dive. Be cognizant of this low battery warning while diving so that you can make a controlled ascent to the surface prior to Nomad shutting off.
The Nomad Battery can easily be swapped out and recharged between dives using the charger that is supplied with the battery, and plugging into a wall outlet. A full charge takes 3 hours. Each battery comes with a charger.
