Aqua Lung is the name that first introduced the world to Scuba diving more than 60 years ago when Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Émile Gagnan developed the first "Aqua-Lung." The excitement and adventurous spirit of that first dive continues today and is reflected in Aqua Lung's dedication to quality and innovation. See more

Aqualung had the patent on the very first scuba regulator to reach worldwide popularity, the “Aqua-Lung,” which was developed by none other than Jacques Cousteau himself. The famed undersea adventurer, alongside his colleague and fellow inventor Emile Gagnan, actually created the company that would later become Aqualung. Even after 70 years in the business they helped create, Aqualung is still innovating, providing high quality equipment for professional and recreational divers and swimmers.
