Sub Sea Systems’ Products

In 1985, we established our brand and built a reputation in the industry as engineers and fabricators of custom submersibles and semi-submersibles. Over the years our products have evolved as we reimagine ways to explore the world’s oceans. Sub Sea Systems’ founders created the SNUBA® shallow water diving system. We designed and created the SeaTREK® helmet diving system, manufacture the SolarCat™ solar-electric catamaran, and invented Clear Lounge®, the world’s 1st underwater oxygen bar. In 2017, we introduced the Aquaticar™ underwater ride and won IAAPA’s Brass Ring Award for Best New Product. In 2018, we partnered with the world leader in aquatic VR, San Francisco-based Ballast Technologies, to create and deliver an entirely new way to experience virtual reality– underwater– in the DIVR, DIVR+ and self-contained Deep Dive VR™ systems.


Comprehensive helmet diving systems and proven guided touring program — available for purchase or license.

“Sea TREK offers a way for guests to interact underwater without needing any ability other than walking and breathing. Sea TREK gives us the opportunity to reach a large market, inclusive of kids, parents and even grandparents, for a multigenerational experience.”

— Liz Lugo Director of Operations, Experiencias Xcaret

SolarCats have been a valuable and unique addition to our beach rentals. Our customers love how easy they are to use, and we have enjoyed the benefits of a reliable product and steady return on our investment.”

— Steve Pinard, Owner Action Sports

I did this back in May. A crowd gathered as the world’s longest round of underwater Jenga took place. What a fun experience!”

— Albie Robles, Clear Lounge Guest

“This is perhaps the most realistic VR experience on the market. Suspension in the neutral buoyancy of water, with special effects is compelling.”

— Stuart Patterson, Project Executive, Qiddiya Invetment Company
