  1. Marc C. Stringer

    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.

  2. Greg stone

    Just opens up a whole new world of aqua adventure and freedom fits in a backpack that come with the product get a spare battery and your got one hour and one half of tankless diving.

  3. Davin Dhatt

    Took my Nomad to the British Virgin Islands recently and it worked exactly as expected. Breathes a bit harder than my normal scuba setup, but not a problem. I was sweating the TSA confiscating my batteries at the airport so I had the air travel certificate all printed out and ready, but through 6 different checkpoints on the way there and back I never got a question!

  4. Marvin D.

    Great Unit. I Love my Nomad and would never change against a bottle <3

    • Emily Smith

      Hi, Marvin. Thanks for the shout-out! We are so glad to hear that you’re loving your Nomad. Happy diving!

    I recently went diving with my friend in Islamorada who had a Nomad, and I was in awe of this phenomenal product. It’s lightweight, easy to use & the maintenance is minimal. Nomad’s compact size also gives you access to more remote diving spots (ones you couldn’t reach with tanks)! When you’re under the water with Nomad, you can glide more freely through the water, making it a unique dive that you cannot achieve while scuba diving. The setup is simple and quick, and we were able to recharge the batteries by boat. My buddy also uses his to clean the bottom of his boat which has been a significant alternative to holding your breath. If you’re a diver, snorkeler or everyday boater, you need to have this product onboard. I can’t emphasize what a difference-maker this system is! I feel that one day it could even change the way we dive forever. I am stoked to go back to the keys during mini season this summer and use Nomad. Thank you BLU3 for inventing such a useful and cool system.

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Kasey! We appreciate you taking the time out to review Nomad. It sounds like you and your friend had a successful dive day in Islamorada. Thanks for pointing out the various reasons you love Nomad! We too love the simple setup, as well as the amplified underwater adventure it provides divers with. We are excited to hear such positive feedback from just one dive. You should consider purchasing one so you can continue to indulge in Nomad’s benefits every time you go under the surface.
      Happy diving!

  6. Rowan

    If you’re wondering whether to stick with snorkelling, or invest in tanks….don’t do either of those. Get a Nomad, and have the access of scuba with the convenience of snorkelling. Nomad is to snorkelling what the iPhone was to the iPod. A step change in utility, through great design. All backed by a small company, that are very responsive in helping users like me

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Rowan!
      We’re glad that our team was able to help you resolve your issue which was caused by using Nomad out of water. As noted in the Owner’s – Users Manual, Nomad needs to remain in water during use, otherwise it may shut off due to overheating.

      We encourage all BLU3 divers to fully understand the manual and BLU3 online dive training course prior to the use of our products.
      Now that your issue is settled, it’s awesome to know that you’re loving Nomad and benefitting from its features.

      At BLU3, we pride ourselves on providing quality service to amazing customers like you! Happy diving.

    Thanks, Blu3, for introducing the underwater world to those of us who can’t or don’t want to lug scuba tanks to hard to reach locations! I’m a new Nomad user, but I’m loving the ease and freedom so far. As an amateur treasure hunter, the Nomad has opened up new areas and vistas to me and my detector — I can’t wait for a trip to the Bahamas later this year!

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Will! It’s great to hear that you are enjoying your new Nomad! Nomad’s portability and lightweight design allow you to dive from remote areas with ease! Best of luck on your Bahamas treasure hunts. Have a great time!

  8. Jim Gillespie

    Perfect for lobster diving in the Florida Keys. I can easily store the BLU3 on my boat and easily get out and get in the water at anytime. Battery life is good and with a spare battery or 2 provides enough time to for a day in the water. As I get older the standard scuba tanks get heavier and I’ve been tank diving less. Can’t wait to get back in the water!

    • Emily Smith

      Hey Jim! We are glad to hear that you’re enjoying your Nomad. Nomad’s compact design makes it easy for storing, usage and battery swapping. It’s great that these features are enhancing your dive excursions. Hopefully, you can get back under the water soon!

  9. Nick Clarke

    I should add – the air supply hose with the Nomad floats which is an important safety feature as hoses which sink (as some do) easily get caught around rocks.

  10. Nick Clarke

    I have often used scuba tanks for diving and also another make of floating hookah air supply but I enjoy diving on the many dive sites accessible from the beaches and bays on the Western Australian coast and both the tanks and other hookah unit are very heavy to carry to the water and over rocks. The Nomad is a fraction of the weight and size due to its clever system of pumping air only as required which means a relatively small battery lasts up to an hour. The unit is very well engineered and built and the batteries can be recharged almost anywhere, with no need for access to a dive shop. I also bought the Spare Air cylinder which can be topped up with a hand pump. My unit was one of the earliest built and I did have some teething problems with occasional difficulty in drawing air. The staff at Blu3 were very helpful and arranged for return and repair. The problem turned out to be just a misaligned O ring but they sent me a brand new replacement unit which I am now looking forward to using. I highly recommend Blu3.

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Nick. Thanks for taking the time out to leave this review! We created Nomad to provide divers with all the awesome features you mentioned. And it’s great to know that they are benefitting you during your underwater adventures. Nomad’s lightweight design and portability definitely come in handy when diving in those rural/rocky areas! Also, we are glad to know you received your replacement and hopefully, you’ll be out diving again soon! Thank you for recommending us- we appreciate your business and support.
      Happy diving!

  11. Walter Luce

    I have been diving for 40 years. I had always likely the concept of surface supplied air but the options were not reasonable to me and I never owned one until now.. I have both the Nemo and the Nomad. Both systems have been easy and trouble free to use. Battery life has been longer than expected. These units have replaced Scuba diving for me entirely. No more heavy tanks in constant need of filling and maintenance. Goodbye Scuba hello Blu3, where have you been all my life.

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Walter! Thank you so much for the glowing review. We too, love the ease and portability with Nemo and Nomad. And we couldn’t be happier that the battery life has surpassed your expectations. Have a great day!

  12. Julie Walsh

    This has reborn diving into my life! It screams FREEDOM! I was certified as a teenager and dove a lot in highschool, college and in my 20’s. However, went on a short hiatus while raising a family. When I saw the Nemo and Nomad, I immediately pre-ordered the Nomad. The compact size and weight allows for quick dives, searching for lost items at the bottom of the lake on a whim right from my jetski! I could not be more excited to have something like this! Brilliant Design and Excellent Quality!

    • Emily Smith

      Julie, we are so thrilled that you’ve been able to dive back into underwater exploration using Nomad! Nemo & Nomad were designed to provide a seamless setup and diving experience, so it’s great to hear that you’ve found the perfect system for using your Nomad! Have a wonderful day!

    Impeccably designed, easy to carry and perfectly packaged. The Blu3 team was easy to work with and everything arrived in a reasonable time.

    G,day Guys
    As most of you know I’ve been diving with the BLU3 Nemo since it’s first arrival and I’ve recovered roughly about $500,000 in GOLD and Diamonds I use to Scuba Dive but now With BLU3 it’s opened a whole new world of underwater exploration. NOW with the NEW BLU3 Nomad I’m able to dive at greater depths of 9 metre up to 60 minutes I just recovered a $17,900 GOLD DIAMOND Cartier Bangle this week in 6 metres of water best part of all these BLU3 Dive systems are airplane travel friendly. I don’t waste time and money refilling heavy Scuba tanks at dive shops any more as they come with swappable batteries the size of your mobile phone, simply recharge batteries at home or on the road to your next dive, now I can travel to remote locations and dive ALL DAY. BLUE also have the worlds first smart reg meaning I only use battery when I breath. THIS IS A WORLD FIRST and a BIG part of why I dive with BLU3. Check out our YouTube channel: Michael Oliver If your curious to see these AWESOME BLU3 Dive systems in ACTION
    Cheers Michael

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Michael. Thanks for the detailed review! We appreciate your partnership and couldn’t be happier to hear about your success with Nemo & Nomad. Both products were designed to provide a diving solution that creates a seamless experience from land to sea. Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing more of your content in the future!

  15. Doug Woodring

    I tried my NOMAD out for the first time 2 weeks ago…I am an avid fossil collector in rivers and creeks of Florida…the unit it exceptionally portable and easy to use….as noted in a review above, the breathing takes a little getting used to as it is an on demand system…i used my unit all day and never exhausted even one battery….the only minor concern i had was the buoyancy of the unit as it seemed a bit off balance in a creek i was in…I contacted the Blu3 Team…i received immediate feedback during normal working hours with team questions and reassurances they would work to address the issue, including replacing the unit if necessary…excellent customer service! This really beats lugging around tanks and gear in some of the inhospitable and overgrown places I trek to….would recommend this unit to anyone interested in surface supply air system.

    • Emily Smith

      Hi, Doug! We appreciate the feedback. It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying Nomad’s portability and user-friendliness. Thank you for contacting our team. We strive to provide the best service we can to loyal customers like you. Happy diving!

    Bought this for my boyfriend who would love to dive more, spear fishing, lobstering, but hesitates because of a severe back injury. This gives him the freedom to do so without all the heavy equipment. Also the shipping process
    Was so quick and flawless!

    • Emily Smith

      Nikki, it’s awesome to hear that your boyfriend has a solution for underwater exploration! Our products were intended to eliminate the extra stress and weight that often comes with scuba gear and tanks! We are so glad that he is able to continue doing what he loves. Have a great day!

  17. Justin Buckman

    Very cool, portable dive set. I love the ability to change batteries and do another dive, keeping me independent of scuba shops.
    The backpack is well designed and manufactured. I think you still need another bag for mask, fins, weight belt, booties, gloves, etc. but it is well sized not too bulky or heavy. When you first put the regulator in your mask it is a different feeling- the compressor only kicks on as you breathe. testing it in the living room- it is a little weird to breathe and then have the compressor kick on and vibrate a second later.

    If there was one thing I’d want changed it is the flag design- the wire that keeps it unfurled when diving also makes it hard to store. It is also hard to change out the battery while the hose is wrapped around the main unit.

    • Emily Smith

      Good afternoon Justin! Thank you for the review. We love the quick and easy battery swap as well. Most experienced divers report that they get used to the different breathing sensation with Nomad after about 10 minutes of diving. We always recommend getting started in the pool or in pool-like conditions. Thanks again for telling us about your experience with Nomad. Enjoy your day!

    Awesome diving system love the mobility of the unit for travel its a great tool in my metal detecting hobby

    • Emily Smith

      Hey Matt! So glad to hear that Nomad is enhancing your underwater metal detecting. Nomad’s mobility and airplane-friendly feature make diving anywhere seamless and even more adventurous than before! Thanks for your feedback.

  19. Ira (verified owner)

    I’m an experienced scuba diver who is thrilled to have a portable means of spearfishing. The Nomad is the closest thing to freediving and has been incredible! I can quickly experience all the fun of scuba without the hassle of filling tanks. Thanks Blu3, looking forward to taking it to the BVI!

    • Emily Smith

      Good afternoon, Ira. Thank you for the awesome review. At BLU3, we like to say our products provide “the simplicity of snorkeling with the thrill of scuba diving.” Not having to worry about tank refills or carrying extra scuba gear definitely makes a difference. Have fun in the BVI—that’s the perfect spot for Nomad!

  20. Jim Mason

    I have thousands of dives through the years and most often find the sealife most beautiful is in the top 30 feet. This device makes it easy and works just as well as full scuba gear. No tank and regulator to deal with, just 10 pounds in the weight belt and off you go. Battery life is very good as well. It is light, easy to set up and breathes just like a scuba tank and regulator. I’m ordering my second one now.

    • Emily Smith

      Hello, Jim. We agree that seeing the most beautiful marine life is easily achievable in 30 feet or less! Nomad’s lightweight design, simple setup and longevity are all features that make Nomad a fan favorite. We are glad you’re loving it too. Thank you for the positive praises.

  21. Frank Hoffman (verified owner)

    I’ve always wanted to scuba dive, without the scuba stuff. It all just seems intimidating. So after going over some alternatives, this seemed like the logical step. After you take the well put together online course, you’re pretty much ready to hit the water. The Nomad worked amazingly on its first us!. I was shocked at how user friendly the whole thing is and how comfortable I felt going out and using it. This is a really great product and I look forward to many more adventures with it!

    • Emily Smith

      Hi Frank! It’s awesome to hear that you’ve found a suitable alternative to scuba. Without the additional gear and tanks, Nomad allows divers to explore more freely. Our free, online training course has guided many water enthusiasts, so it’s great to know that it helped you and made you comfortable before your first dive! Thanks for the enthusiastic feedback. Adventure awaits…
