SCUBAPRO first appeared in the scuba diving world in the early 1960’s. It was guided by two men, Gustav Dalla Valle and Dick Bonin. They brought to the market many innovations for diving that are still being used today.
UWATEC was founded in 1983 in Hallwil, in the heart of Switzerland. In 1987 they introduced their first dive computer, the Aladin PRO. It was quickly established as the standard in the industry. By the early 1990s, UWATEC was synonymous for diving computers. Joining Johnson Outdoors and SCUBAPRO in 1997, UWATEC continues to be a leading innovator in the industry.
Today, SCUBAPRO remains a premier manufacturer of scuba diving equipment and employs over 400 people in 17 locations spread over 13 countries, covering 4 continents. At least 1 in every 2 employees is a diver and in several countries over 80% are divers, and over a third are instructors. SCUBAPRO is a Johnson Outdoors Inc. company.

SCUBAPRO DIVE COMPUTERS AND INSTRUMENTS
You’ve been underwater for almost an hour in unfamiliar territory. The current is strong, the scenery, stunning. Even the most skilled divers rely on their equipment in an underwater excursion. The watery depths are full of unknowns, and while that is part of the allure, it calls for the utmost in preparation. A personal dive computer is the diver’s best friend. We employ cutting edge technology without compromising usability. SCUBAPRO dive computers process dive information accurately and precisely, incorporating it on an easy-to-read, high-resolution screen so you can embark on your adventure with confidence.
FINE TUNED SYSTEMS, HANDPICKED BY EXPERTS. The engineers at SCUBAPRO follow a different approach for pairing first and second stages. Each component is first evaluated separately to determine its unique strengths. Using that information, SCUBAPRO then curates distinct combinations that suit specific diving environments. The result is a diverse collection of systems made by divers, for divers.
You’re floating in the water and ready to dive head first into the deep blue. The world the diver moves in is constantly changing. It is quite literally a fluid environment that calls for constant adaptation. The buoyancy compensator (BC) is the platform of the SCUBA diving system that provides flexibility and stability. It facilitates precise changes in underwater body position, allowing you to effortlessly see the world around you. SCUBAPRO offers three different categories of BCs offering different buoyancy behavior and trim under the water, as well as stability on the surface. All conform securely to the diver’s body to minimize drag and provide a comfortable, non-restrictive fit around shoulders and waist.

SCUBAPRO selection of fins ranges from the first milestone in fin technology ever, the time proven Jet Fin, to the modern and revolutionary concept of the Seawing Nova Fin which exceeds fin performance substantially while reducing diver effort. Through SCUBAPRO wide selection of blade and split fins, in both adjustable and full foot versions, SCUBAPRO provides the right fin for every training level, diving environment and field of diving.
The most important consideration in mask selection is ﬁt. No two faces are alike, so SCUBAPRO’s broad range takes individual differences into account. SCUBAPRO’s basic difference in masks lies in the number of lenses. SINGLE-LENS masks remain a popular choice worldwide because they provide a broad, uninterrupted view. TWIN-LENS masks have become increasingly popular because they typically lower internal volume and are easier to clear. To increase peripheral vision and transfer more light, SCUBAPRO has incorporated side lenses into selected masks. A ﬁnal consideration in mask selection is ease of clearing. Low-volume masks and models with purge valves make clearing easier, even for the less experienced diver.
SCUBAPRO DIVE BAGS
Travel is a major part of diving and SCUBAPRO appreciates the importance of correctly transporting and protecting your equipment. SCUBAPRO bag line has been developed for diver particular needs, incorporating convenience and comfort into ultra-strong gear bags.
