Top Quality Scuba Diving
Gear Made in the USA

By Matt Mullins – Last updated: December 5, 2023

Looking for what diving equipment is made in the USA? Then you’ve come to the right place. Here, I’ve researched and compiled an unbiased alphabetical guide to all of the American made Scuba manufacturers I could find. I love Scuba diving and like to reward ethical local manufacturing whenever possible. I encourage you to support your local dive shop first, but if you will be ordering online anyways then please help support us through our links. *I took the above photo while liveaboard diving in Komodo National Park.
