In May, 2006 David Blaine relied on Atomic Aquatics products as he was submerged
underwater for an entire week - longer than any other human being...ever! Blaine
stayed underwater breathing an Atomic Aquatics T2 for countless hours at a
time. He was very impressed with the Atomic Aquatics T2 and SubFrame mask stating
that the regulator breathed flawlessly throughout the week and left him without
any jaw fatigue or soreness in the mouth.

"I have had difficulty in the past finding a mask that
fits, so I was extremely excited to find your Frameless mask. It fits great and
gives me a wide field of view to take in all there is to see of this waterworld.
You would think that it would have been the easiest thing to find but it has
been the hardest. Everything underwater begins with the basic desire to see and
enjoy, I'm glad my search is over!"

Recently Edward purchased two Atomic Aquatics T2 Titanium regulators and two SS1 Titanium safe second stages.
"I wanted the best equipment available to use during a marine life research
project off the coast of California at Catalina Island. When it came to buying
equipment, Atomic Aquatics was an easy choice. The T2 and SS1 has performed flawlessly
International Motivational Speaker
"Throughout my life I have always strived to bring
performance to the next level. In order to achieve the best results I have learned
it is necessary
to use the
best products available. As a diving enthusiast and owner of a diving resort,
I only want to use the highest quality products available. The Atomic Aquatics
regulators provide an unsurpassed level of reliability and safety."

became acquainted during the DEMA show in 1991. "His
work was just so much better than anything else
we had ever seen, stunning photos of whales—absolutely
the best!" As soon as Atomic Aquatics was formed,
Bob Talbot was one of the first people in the
world to dive an Atomic T1 Titanium regulator.

My choice for a high performance car is the Audi TTs, underwater housings
for cameras is Seacam and for a steadfast underwater breathing apparatus
for any diving conditions is Atomic. Essentially regulators are like cars;
all will take you from point A to B, but when in demanding situation such
as shooting boisterous leopard seals in frigid Antarctic water or spinning
within a twister of 200 hungry mantas in the Maldives, or facing a Great
White without a cage, the Atomic performs superbly and safely allowing
me to focus on bringing back high quality images. With the advent of the
and M1, Atomic defines the benchmark for the new generation of regulators.
"I've been on Atomic Aquatics regulators (currently, the T2) for most of
my diving career, and it's the one piece of gear I almost never think about.
I always know that it's going to give me an easy breath of air no matter
where or what position I put myself in, underwater." www.echeng.com
"I have worked as a PADI Dive Instructor
aboard the Solmar V live-aboard for
many years, making trips to the Revillagigedos
Islands (more commonly known as Socorro),
the Sea of Cortez and more recently
to Guadalupe Island. In December 2000
I had the opportunity to try a pair
of Atomic SpitFins. I've used
them on every trip since, diving several
times a day, almost every day of the
week. The SplitFins allow me to move
easily and quickly through the water,
even in places where there is surge
or current. This allows me to easily
and confidently look after my clients."
"Simply because today, more than anytime in history, we have the best specially
designed equipment to handle the cold water and provide the safety margin that
is required under these challenging conditions. For our breathing apparatus we
have regulators specifically designed to operate flawlessly in freezing water.
I have experimented with a few and the Atomic Aquatics M1 does very well for
me. Never freezes and never free flows—always easy to breath when I need
it most. " www.biganimals.com

"The diversity of diving has certainly put Atomic Aquatics to the test!! I dive
locally in cold water & very sandy beach conditions. My regulator has yet
to free flow in these rough conditions. When traveling, as in Sipadan, every
first dive starts at about 130 ft., yet, I don't notice any differences
in breathing at the varied depths. I hand carry my regulator on the plane, so,
its lightness certainly is a plus. I know the Titanium doesn't corrode,
so, I feel confident traveling to remote areas which have no fresh water rinses." www.DivegearUSA.com
"During a recent trip
to Galapagos I realized a whole new appreciation
for my Atomic Aquatics SplitFins and T1x regulator.
July is the season for whale
shark sightings, but also promises cold water, washing-machine currents, and
low visibility. Yet with two cameras strapped onto my BC I didn't hesitate to
dive right in. With each encounter the opportunity to get any good photos would
last only a few seconds. The whale sharks looked like they were barely moving
but keeping up with them while loaded down with cameras was a challenging and
exhausting task. As the whale shark glided by me and I captured my last shot,
I realized I was breathing like I had just run a marathon, yet my Atomic Aquatics
regulator kept on delivering. As I surfaced and climbed aboard the panga, I realizing
that I wouldn't have been able to do this had it not been for the performance
of my Atomic Aquatics regulator and split fins." www.UnderWatercolours.com
For the most challenging

David Doubilet is the world’s most innovative underwater photographer with
over 65 stories published in National Geographic along with his partner Jennifer
Hayes are principal explorer members of the Elysium Epic expedition to the Antarctic.
To work in this extreme condition, the regulator of choice to function superbly
and reliably is the Atomic M1. It is the obvious choice for all significant reasons.
What is The Elysium Epic Expedition?
In 20 February 2010, some of the world’s best
nature conservation photographers, film makers, artists,
musicians and scientists teamed up and travelled to
Antarctic to document the above and below scenes, flora and fauna that Sir
Ernest Shackleton and his team would have seen and
missed after losing the Endurance
in 1914 – from the Weddell Sea to Elephant Island and the heroic sail
to South Georgia. To view the official expedition report visit www.ElysiumEpic.org.

"On a recent trip to Raja Ampat, I happily found myself the "Atomic Diver",
diving with mask, regulator, and fins by Atomic Aquatics. Actually, the mask
had been my favorite for quite some time. Once I discovered the comfort the Atomic
frameless (black, of course, to block extraneous light hitting the camera's
ground glass) and optical superiority of the UltraClear lenses, I immediately
adopted that as my preferred "shooter" mask. However, the regulator and fins
were new to me. But once I tried them, they immediately become preferred gear
as well." www.stephenfrink.com

"Atomic Aquatics' Ti2
combines two features that were once considered
to be mutually exclusive: high performance and rock-solid reliability. Since
I bought my first Atomic regulator in 1997, I've
been able to mount it
on the tank and forget it,
regardless of depth, workload, or conditions. I
torture-tested a prototype in the salty,
arid climate of the Red Sea, washing it only once during a month of heavy-duty
diving. Despite that, it went a year and half before needing its first overhaul.
That's the sort of performance I can depend on, dive after dive." www.EHanauer.com
"Since I was seventeen,
I have dived with the best regulators in the industry.
As a marine artist specializing in realism, I need dive equipment that I can
depend on in order to observe and photograph the subjects I paint. When I am
diving, I need to focus on the composition and light of my subjects in a limited
amount of time. I can't afford to worry about what I need most... AIR!.
For my diving needs, there is no other regulator, which matches the performance
and dependability than the Atomic Aquatics T1."
"I've been professionally involved in diving for 37
years (ex-Chairman of NAUI, founder and ex-President of TDI/SDI training
agencies, ex-President and CEO of UWATEC, founder and ex-publisher
of Fathoms magazine as well as editing Scuba Times, Deep Tech, and
Rodale's Scuba Diving, ex-world depth record holder on scuba 475
ft., co-founder of Ocean Quest
International, and author/editor of 37 books...), I'm retired now
and living the good life but still traveling all over the world diving
on special projects."
"The best regulators in the frigging world are made by Atomic. They
have superb performance, flawless reliability, and the best customer
service in the industry. I've been using their Titanium series since
1996 and would not even think of diving with anything else. The guys
that run the company are the best examples of business ethics you'll
find. You can buy an Atomic regulator and rely on it for virtually
any type of diving. I've known Doug, Dean, and Seamus for years and
you can trust your life with their products."
"It's the best investment you'll ever make in diving equipment. I
can afford anything and most companies would pay me to use their
gear. I choose Atomic because it's simply the best stuff out there."
Aquatics Titanium regulator has exceeded
my scuba diving expectations. I've
been diving for 11 years and teaching recreational
diving for 9 years. One of ways I make the
most of my diving is by using the best equipment
available. The Titanium gives me the confidence
of effortlessly breathing at any depth. I
can miss a fresh water rinse once in a while
and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that
my Atomic Aquatics will work perfectly because
the material just won't corrode. This
Atomic Aquatic Titanium regulator allows
me to worry less about keeping my gear clean
and allows me more time to enjoy my scuba
