Company Summary

Lungfish Dive Systems was founded to commercialise new technologies which improve the safety and ease of use of closed-circuit breathing systems (rebreathers). With long endurance, silence, and low decompression, rebreathers are seen as the future of diving but have been held back by issues of safety, complexity and cost. By solving these problems, we aim to bring benefits currently only available to the specialist diver to the mass SCUBA market.

He founded and raised finance for Lungfish (then Cambridge) Dive Systems and works on design, construction and testing of our products.
