COURSE: ANTIQUE DIVE HELMET


Since thousands of years ago the desire to know the seabed drives the humanity to devise ways of breathing underwater and since hundreds we can trace the origin of first diving devices.

The prototypes, helmets and suits, the air supply and the accessories that served as a basis for this activity, have changed relatively little in their conception, although much in safety and in the use of new technical materials.

Do you want to know more? The evolution of the equipments? How were they used? Wear a complete team and know how a diver felt with it? And if you dare, why not try one in the water?
