A high quality material

Nethuns Diving provides you with high quality equipment in partnership with SCUBAPRO. Concerned about your comfort, we offer equipment adapted to each morphology.

You’ll be diving with MK25s, SCUBAPRO’s most popular first stage combined with the most powerful second stage, the S600. This regulator offers absolutely perfect performance in all temperatures and diving conditions. Children will have their own regulator, the MK2EVO/RO95, lighter and adapted to their size.

You will be equipped with the X-Black adjustable stabilizing vest, featuring SCUBAPRO’s exclusive AirFlex system that simplifies buoyancy control. This stabilization vest offers incredible lift and, thanks to its ergonomic cut, unparalleled comfort. For women divers, we offer the Bella vest, specially designed, adjusted and cut for the female morphology.
As for the youngest, they will be equipped with the Rebel vest designed for them. For your comfort, all our stabilization vests are equipped with a removable ballast pocket.

The Definition 5 mm suits, in men’s or women’s cut, will give you comfort, flexibility, a perfect fit and more elasticity in the most stressed areas. Its inner lining reflects body heat for added thermal insulation. They are assembled with solvent-free glue using a 100% green process. For those who are a bit chilly, we have hoods and gloves available.

The SeaWing Nova, a fin model that is worn with booties that will be provided, combines the power, propulsion and maneuverability of a classic fin with the comfort, efficiency and effortless thrust of an articulated fin. The SeaWing Nova fin represents the ultimate in comfort and efficiency.

We offer 3 models of masks, the Spectra classic or mini and the Zoom, to best suit your face.
