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.
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.
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.
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.
