Clothing, Education, and Experiences for the Aquatic Explorer

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about Aquanauts Freediving! My name is Rachel, and I started this company with a sincere interest in catering to those who seek an adventurous lifestyle involving the underwater world! As a sailor, freediver, scuba diver, and mermaid performer, it has been my goal to use my knowledge in these areas to provide education and experiences that get people into the ocean in a safe and responsible manner. Those who spend time in the ocean are often the ones who are most motivated to cherish and take care of it. I welcome partnerships with artists, photographers, dive operators, and ocean conservation groups. Please feel free to message me for questions or collaborations!

We are a brand that aims to make our world a better place. Our products are made when you order them in order to reduce waste from clothing production, and we are working to reduce plastic waste in our packaging. Your support of our brand enables us to organize beach and dive site cleanups during our courses and events.
