About Poseidon

The dive... the ultimate escape and the ultimate sensation of being. Below the surface - do not disturb and don't be disturbed. 

In 1958 Ingvar Elfström founded Poseidon. With a quest to solve a range of diving-related problems his innovative solutions securely placed him among the great entrepreneurial pioneers. Elfström's legacy has been continued and Poseidon equipment enjoys a stellar reputation within the diving community. 

At Poseidon, these are exciting times. Perhaps the most exciting in our +60 year history. Poseidon just successfully launched the first rebreather for recreational divers. Poseidon is expanding and developing thier market presence to make it easier and better for you to buy Poseidon products from knowledgeable, local outlets, wherever you happen to be in the world.

Poseidon has been in the breathing business for a long time. Poseidon believes the equipment you take underwater is a life-preserving device. As divers themselves, they never compromise with quality, and they never stop searching for new ways to improve safety and enhance the diving experience.

The Poseidon History

The Poseidon company was founded in 1958 in Gothenburg, Sweden, by Dennis Österlund and Ingvar Elfström. It was the first in the world to produce a single hose regulator, the breathing apparatus used by nearly every recreational diver ever since. The original name – Aqua-Sport – was changed as the company began to look at new markets for its products.

Today, Poseidon exports to almost every country in the world, bringing the ultimate in diving gear to demanding recreational divers, rescue divers, and the military. Manufacturing and research have taken place at the company’s modern factory and test facility on the outskirts of Gothenburg since the mid-80s.

The last few years have marked the latest chapter of the Poseidon story, with new owners, new investment, and the decision to develop a new generation of diving apparatus – the Poseidon MKVI rebreather.



Innovation, performance, quality, and safety.
