Design & Engineering

Introducing the AquaDart Nano range – a ground-breaking leap ahead of all other sea scooters currently on the market. Through extensive collaboration with iAQUA users worldwide, our engineers have gained invaluable insights into the needs of the market. They wanted “The power of an AquaDart Pro, yet with half the weight.” This seemingly impossible task mean’t iAQUA had to develop a cutting-edge new motor, new propulsion system leading to the patent pending revolutionary DualJet propulsion system, plus advanced production techniques. This knowledge has also driven us to design the AquaDart Nano with lightweight, yet strong materials and technology specifically engineered to withstand the harshest underwater marine environments, resulting in an astounding failure rate of less than one percent. We pride ourselves on delivering unmatched reliability in marine-based products.

Learning from the AquaDart Pro the Nano also is built around iAQUA’s unique Internal Harness System. This means even in the rare event of an issue, the Nano’s modular, plug & play platform ensures a quick and hassle-free fix, getting you back in action without delay. While the AquaDart Nano is already over-engineered for use in freshwater lakes and rivers, every iAQUA product is meticulously built and tested to the same rigorous standards, guaranteeing resilience in the toughest environments.

The advantages of iAQUA’s Internal Harness System allowing a craft designed with 'plug & play' modular components, enabling swift and straightforward replacements or servicing is ground-breaking, and totally unique to iAQUA. Should the need arise to replace a part it’s easy, inexpensive and very quick. Most jobs take around 30 minutes, and what’s more it is done locally. Say goodbye to the inconvenience of shipping your unit back to a service centre in another country for weeks at a time, that can cost many thousands of dollars. Instead, enjoy the ease of a locally completed component change, making ongoing ownership of the AquaDart Nano inexpensive, effortless and trouble-free. This is particularly crucial for scuba and dive schools, rental operators, and charter yachts, where the uninterrupted availability of your AquaDart Nano is of utmost importance.

Revolutionary Dual-Jet™ Propulsion System
Revolutionary Dual-Jet™ Propulsion System

iAqua’s revolutionary DualJet™ propulsion system delivers up to 60% more thrust than conventional marine jet-drive systems and does so throughout the whole power range. Conventional jet-drive systems waste about 50% of the thrust generated via ‘tunnel turbulence’, which means you lose up to 50% of the power and thrust generated and waste up to 50% of your battery power generating the unused thrust. Working in a similar way to an aeroplane jet engine, iAQUA’s patented DualJet™ technology harnesses 100% of the thrust to give you serious power and acceleration from lower revs which results in lower battery usage.

Intelligent Battery Management
Intelligent Battery Management

Unique, cutting-edge battery management means more time spent exploring. The power management and precise energy distribution for all the systems to work together are state-of-the-art.
For those engineers, we have 24X high power MOSFET transistors, cutting-edge Aluminum power driver circuit board and thermal mass placement on the key components to ensure that the batteries are always ready to deliver maximum energy in an instant and always well within the safety limits of the battery’s operation. The level of ‘over-engineering’ ensures that the battery management and safety features simply do not fail and will give you years of reliable enjoyment.

During operation, when the battery life gets low, the AquaDart’s smart sensor technology measures it and adjusts the power output accordingly. This gives you operation times of up to 200% more than its nearest competitors, and it also means users can get more than two hours of use on a single charge. In addition it will ensure your battery life always outlasts your adventure, vitally making certain scuba divers always have enough power in reserve to return home.

How does it work?
Starting at full power (level 6), the AquaDart will automatically decrease to level 5 when the battery decreases below 50%. Then, when the battery is at 40% capacity, it goes down to level 4, at 30% capacity, it goes down to level 3, and when it’s at 20% capacity, it goes down to level 2 and gives you a warning that there’s only 20% left. Then, when there’s less than 10% of juice left, the device switches to power saving mode, level 1, and gives off a constant battery low warning.

This is all done automatically for you. No other professional dive scooter has this function meaning with the AquaDart Nano you’ll enjoy considerably longer usage duration and will always have additional battery power in reserve when needed.

Special Offer – FREE Fast Charger worth $1,595 with every AquaDart Nano 670 Max and 720 Xtreme

Patented Dual-operated Control Grips
Patented Dual-operated Control Grips

At iAQUA, our engineers embarked on a groundbreaking journey to create the safest, most reliable, and easy-to-use control buttons. Going back to the drawing board, we developed a control system that offers unparalleled flexibility. It can be operated with a single hand, whether left or right, or configured to operate with both hands in a dual-gripped safety system. This innovative design ensures that if either hand loses grip, the AquaDart comes to a halt or doesn't start, preventing accidental acceleration when only one hand is gripping the scooter. This feature is particularly ideal for children, students, beginners, and situations where total control is paramount.
The single-handed operation proves invaluable for a wide range of activities, including search and rescue operations, underwater photography, spear-gun fishing, low-speed scuba diving, and experienced users seeking convenience and efficiency.

Setting a new standard in the industry, no other dive scooter boasts such an advanced control system, offering the flexibility of left or right-hand operation alongside a dual-grip safety mechanism.

Our patented mechanical push-button system is not only simple to use but also pressure-tested to depths of 100 meters, ensuring its reliability in even the most demanding underwater environments. The built-in LED light provides visual confirmation of switch activation, enhancing the intuitive and satisfying user experience. With just these two buttons, you can easily access all the features of the AquaDart's control handles, utilizing short pushes, long pushes, or press and hold actions. Unlike other dive scooters that require multiple buttons during operation, the AquaDart Nano simplifies the process, giving you a seamless and streamlined control experience.

Hydrodynamic Optimisation Ensures Precision Handling
Hydrodynamic Optimisation Ensures Precision Handling

The AquaDart's captivating design is not just about its undeniable aesthetic appeal - although it does look undeniably stunning. Every curve, surface, and contour of the AquaDart's body serves a purpose: to achieve optimal hydrodynamics with minimal drag coefficient at any speed, whether above or below the water surface. This pursuit of perfection led us through over 30 models and thousands of hours of simulations to achieve our goal.
The AquaDart Nano sets a new industry standard with its unparalleled power-to-weight ratio at over 28 newtons of thrust per kg. No other sea scooter comes close. Through meticulous design, the motor operates with exceptional efficiency, delivering full thrust with remarkable precision. While it may not claim the title of the fastest dive scooter (the AquaDart Pro Xtreme enjoys that honour), its ultra-responsive acceleration allows it to reach maximum speed in less than three seconds, providing an exhilarating experience. What's more, the AquaDart Nano maintains near-silent operation, ensuring a serene and immersive journey beneath the waves.

Achieving a neutral balance in buoyancy positioning and weight distribution, the AquaDart becomes a nimble and agile companion underwater. Its exceptional manoeuvrability makes it perfect for underwater acrobatics and precise handling, allowing you to navigate through coral reefs and tight spaces effortlessly.

On the water's surface, the AquaDart glides gracefully, maintaining a continuous and smooth flow of water over its nose. This elegant motion serves a vital purpose: to minimize drag and ensure optimal efficiency.

With a commitment to modularity and a meticulous adherence to the laws of physics, our engineers at iAQUA have achieved outstanding performance. Embrace the result of their first principles thinking and experience the true power of hydrodynamic excellence with the AquaDart.
