As summer kicks in and you spend more time in the water, new diving equipment might be at the forefront of your mind. It can feel like there are more brands and products on the market than ever before and finding gear that matches your values and enhances your performance can be challenging, particularly if you are planning to use the water in a whole host of ways this summer.

The latest addition to the diving brands we stock at Aquanauts is Cressi. Allowing us to offer top-specification scuba equipment as well as a whole range of products for serious swimmers, summer holiday snorkellers and watersports beginners. Let’s take a look at why we’re proud to bring you a great range of Cressi products for the first time…

Family first ethos

We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for fellow family-run businesses, and this one has a fascinating history. Cressi was the passion project of the Cressi brothers, who worked tirelessly to craft innovative equipment for water activities and launched the brand in Italy in 1946. Though Cressi has grown considerably since, it maintains its core family ethos, designing and manufacturing products that are built to last, be enjoyed, and keep all levels of water users safe.

Multi-functional

Scuba diving gear sits at the very forefront of what Cressi produce, but high-performance regulators, consoles and fins are just the start of a range that spans all of your favourite water activities. At the heart of every range is a simple but strong passion for the sea, which is why the Cressi range has evolved with the times to include innovative equipment for freediving, snorkelling, swimming and paddling. Their mission to ensure that everyone can enjoy the water is one we’re delighted to get on board with and stocking multi-functional Cressi products means that you’ll find items you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see at Aquanauts like swimming goggles!

Committed to the future of the planet

With Cressi’s love of the ocean comes a wider love of the planet. Cressi is continually evolving its manufacturing processes to find ways to make equipment that is more sustainable and will last longer. As a result, Cressi products are designed with repairs in mind, so that waste and consumption can be limited. It’s seemingly small thoughts like this that add up to big benefits for future generations and the planet in years to come.

Our Top Cressi Products

Cressi Ultralight BCD

The Cressi Ultralight BCD showcases the brand’s scuba diving expertise. It’s the perfect BCD for the summer or a diving holiday, as it’s notably flexible and lightweight. As well as being incredibly breathable, the comfort of the Cressi BCD is enhanced by an independent waist strap that prevents feeling constricted when inflated. Plus, with two roomy zipped pockets, you can be certain that your gear will be safe and secure.

Cressi Pro Star Snorkel Set

The Cressi Pro Star Snorkel Set comes complete with everything you need to take your snorkelling, scuba diving or freediving up a notch. In this fantastic snorkel package, you can get your hands on three of Cressi’s very best products: pro star fins, twin-lens matric mask and the gamma snorkel. Comfortable, stylish and powerful, a Cressi snorkel set is a great introduction to a real all-round diving brand.

Cressi Quantum Mask

Compact and innovative, the Quantum Mask is one of the most innovative pieces of equipment in the Cressi range. The patented membrane technology in this Cressi mask cleverly traps excess moisture from your nose to cleverly prevent mask fogging during your dive. Available in a huge range of vibrant and unique colours, the Cressi Quantum Mask is a great upgrade for beginner and advanced divers alike.

Cressi Fast Onepiece Wetsuit

The Cressi Fast One Piece Wetsuit is the perfect wetsuit for anybody that enjoys a wide variety of watersports. Available in 3mm and 5mm thicknesses, this Cressi wetsuit looks great and performs even better, with pre-shaped legs and anti-abrasion reinforcement to give you the durability you need for scuba diving, stand-up paddleboarding, and anything in between!

Cressi Alpha Ultra Dry Snorkel

Great if you want to start snorkelling more in your spare time, this is a really reliable piece of kit that utilises a handy float mechanism to prevent water from entering the snorkel and enhance natural breathing. The quality of the Cressi Alpha Ultra Dry Snorkel showcases just how diverse this dive brand is and a lot of thought has gone into designing with scuba divers as well as snorkellers in mind. The mouthpiece drops away when you’re not using it and is neatly angled to limit jaw fatigue.

Cressi Mini Cobra Swim Goggles

Our range of Cressi products extends to great items that will help get kids more confident in the water. Whether your children enjoy spending time in the pool or you want to inspire a lifelong love of open water swimming, check out the Cressi Mini Cobra Swim Goggles. The quality of these goggles is obvious, with shatterproof and anti-scratch lenses to withstand whatever wear and tear your child throws at them!
