About Aqua Star USA:
Manufacturer of High Tech Underwater Dive Scooters, and Dive helmet. AQUA STAR USA was formed in 2005 with a vision to build the world & best underwater dive scooter. Much time was spent in the design and development of the AS1 model introduced to the public in 2007. Building upon the success of the single seat AS1 model, Aqua Star envisioned a two person scooter, and in early 2009 Aqua Star launched the world's first two-seat scooter designating it model AS2. The AS2 is perfectly suited for couples to explore underwater wonders in a very safe environment. Both riders are free to dismount, swim around and climb back aboard. The diving helmet design (sold separately as the ASH) is nicely integrated into the scooters body; the rider's head goes inside an air bubble within the helmet which is constantly supplied with air from scuba tanks attached to the front body of the scooter. The helmets fog resistant glass is flat, and 99% distortion free giving a clear underwater experience, thus reducing the noxious feeling commonly associated with the bubble top models.

The new Aqua Star scooters are sleeker, faster, and are much lighter (AS1 80 lbs. and AS2 160 lbs.) than older models currently in operation. Aqua Star has incorporated the latest in technology, design using only the very best substrates available today.

Novices can master the controls in a training course which can be completed in just a few minutes. Those who are not strong swimmers or who have minor disabilities can still ride the bike and can even wear glasses or contact lenses without difficulty. No diving certification is needed, no experience is required. For tour operators, safety divers control the ascent and descent into the water, but the rider has control of direction, and speed. A line attached to a buoy keeps the scooter safely tethered to the world above.

Both the controls operate like your typical motorbike, just turn the handlebars for direction and push the batons for speed and depth. Pressure and depth gauges are clearly seen on the control bar. Each scooter is powered by two electric motors, one for forward movement and another for vertical movement, providing precise control and maneuverability and safety. The motors run by a rechargeable battery lasting up to 2.5 hours, which means the scooters are very environment friendly preserving the fabulous underwater ecosystem. With speeds up to 4.4 mph and operating depth to 12 meters riders have access to the beautiful sea life, shallow reefs and caves.
