How work section
El flotador PETER tiene un diseño ergonómico, hidrodinámico, y de vanguardia, realizado por reconocidos arquitectos navales. El flotador PETER no sólo es atractivo, sino que esta plataforma flotante ofrece muchas ventajas y abre una amplio abanico de nuevas aplicaciones.
El sistema de la manguera actúa como un limitador de profundidad que puede ser modulado dependiendo del propósito de la inmersión. Los conectores rápidos presentan doble sistema de seguridad para evitar las desconexiones accidentales y todos son rotatorios. Cuando los buzos se mueven y crean una ligera tensión, los enredos desaparecen.
El cinturón de peso de liberación rápida es universal y se adapta a todos los tamaños corporales, este cinturón se puede instalar fácilmente para neutralizar la flotabilidad positiva natural del cuerpo humano, permitiendo que cualquiera se mueva libremente bajo el agua. En caso de emergencia, el sistema de liberación rápida permite a los buzos dejar caer el cinturón de seguridad mientras se mantiene el suministro de aire.
Dive with PETER, Dive the easy way
The PETER Diving System uses compressed air tanks like the common SCUBA system but with long air tubes that allow the heavy tanks to remain on the surface while the divers explore the world below the waves with total freedom.
With no need for buoyancy control devices and the safety that comes from being attached to a floating object on the surface, this system is extremely simple and ideal for first-time divers.
PETER can also be a great tool for maintenance purposes and for emergencies such as untangling a rope from a propeller. You can even connect pneumatic tools like a polisher to clean the hull of your boat.
PETER Diving System is the smartest diving system because it is:
- Good looking!
PETER Diving System is the safest and easiest diving system currently existing.
Firstly, it should be taken into account that statistically scuba diving 1 is less risky than running a marathon 2 or driving a regular car 3 .
PETER Diving System is tried and tested. Even insurance companies have lowered their fees for persons diving with PETER as the accident record is zero after thousands of satisfied divers 4 .
Safety comes as a result of the technological innovation of each of the exclusively designed components:
- Made out of unsinkable materials. Divers can hold on to it if there is any mishap such as a muscle cramp or a tired diver that needs a short rest.
- Coloured bright yellow and flying the nautical Alfa flag. Which means "I have a diver down; keep well clear at slow speed." So it is almost impossible for a boat not to notice PETER and understand that there are divers below.
The Hose System
This acts as a depth limiter. Maximum attainable depth is 6 m, equal to the depth a human can dive with no risk of suffering decompression sickness (Van Liew & Flynn, 2005). The quick-connectors have double security system to avoid accidental disconnections.
The Automatic Alarm
With no need of computers or electrical devices, it makes a noise when the air pressure in the tank is low, telling divers that the underwater tour should be terminated and providing enough time to safely return to the surface.
The Quick-Release Weight-Belt
Universal to all body sizes, this belt can be fitted easily to neutralize the natural positive buoyancy of a human body, allowing anyone to freely move underwater. In an emergency, the quick-release system allows the divers to drop the weight-belt while keeping the air supply going.
Our technology audited by Bereau Veritas meets the international requirement of EN ISO 250:2001 which further confirms our commitment to safety.
An encounter with marine life for the entire family, in a safe and direct experience that you will never forget
If you just want to have a go, you may try the PETER Diving experience at any PETER Point. Dive centers are offering guided tours in the Mediterranean since 2013 (Balearic Islands, Spain). More new PETER Points will be opening in 2016 in the Atlantic Ocean (Canary Islands, Spain). Both are located in wonderful diving areas. Soon you will be able to dive in many more PETER Points located in other regions of the world.

On-board entertainment, a tool for the crew
Combining the experience gained after thousands of dives, and after so many requests from our clients we have developed a revolutionary diving kit.
The PETER Yacht model has been designed as a luxury toy for yachts but has also proved to be a useful tool for maintenance purposes and very handy for emergencies like a stuck anchor.
Three different kits will be launched in January 2016, all including the equipment for two simultaneous divers:
- PETER Yacht Basic: no cylinder included in case you want to use your own.
- PETER Yacht Steel: includes a 12L stainless steel air tank.
- PETER Yacht Carbon: includes a 9L carbon fiber cylinder and the exclusive automatic alarm. Definitely the smartest, lightest and most compact diving system on the market.
For recreational dive or watersport centres the model PETER Tours provides a larger platform, more convenient for carrying heavier tanks (usualy 15L steel) and performing larger numbers of introductory dives. Contact us for more information.
Scientist have shown that 6 m is the deepest a diver can go without the risk of suffering decompression sickness (VanLiew & Flynn, 2005). That is why the standard maximum depth reached with PETER is 6 m. However, PETER is a modular device so it can be adapted to dive either shallower or deeper by setting it up with the right accessories.
For instance, if you do not want your kids to dive deeper than 1 m, just plug that size of air hoses and you will be able to check where they are at all times by watching the float. But imagine you drop your old watch down to 15 m. No problem, just plug several air hoses together and get it back from the sea.
Deep diving is very dangerous and should only be undertaken by experienced and certified divers.
Considering a full tank* and a maximum depth of 6 m, the dive time depends on how many divers are connected to one system:
- 1 diver: 50-120 min.
- 2 divers: 30-60 min.
- 3 divers: 20-35 min.
However, it always depends on the diver’s own air consumption.
PETER is simpler, lighter, and more compact than any other multi-user diving system.
*12l iron cilynder filled to 220 bar or 9l carbon fiber cylinder to 300 bar.
Because PETER is a multi-user diving system and the most simple existing, its weight and volume is less than any other.
For conventional scuba diving, each diver needs to wear an inflatable vest and a tank plus all the accessories and extra weights, all up around 30 kilograms 1 . A PETER unit for up to 3 persons including the tank also weights about 30 kilograms. So Peter is up to 3 times lighter per diver.
The size reduction is similar. The size of a PETER equipment for 3 divers can be fitted in the same bag as the SCUBA equipment for 1 person. This reduces the volume of equipments up to a 66% per diver.

9 liter tank, carbon fiber
Environmental conservation is a priority in our company.
PETER does not directly pollute as it does not use fuel or batteries to work. Yet, manufacturing and logistical processes do. This is why we try our best in optimizing the use of resources.
We also try to balance the few negative impacts of our production by actively contributing to marine conservation through the TRITON Project. 1% of PETER Diving’s yearly profits are devoted to preserve the seas.
Additionally, all companies offering PETER Diving tours contribute every year by undertaking one volunteer action for marine conservation. This can be anything from cleaning up the debris found in an inlet or harbour to helping out in a monitoring program from a research institution.
This means that by buying any PETER Diving’s services or products you are helping us keep the oceans healthy.
Everyone can dive with PETER from the first time they try it. Visit PETER Diving’s Tripadvisor page ranked top activity in Mallorca (Spain) to know the experience lived by already certified PETER Divers.
Only basic swimming skills are required. Kids, elderly and even the physically or mentally challenged can safety feel the freedom of breathing underwater with PETER.
- PETER Handi is our project for social commitment. After hundreds of successful experiences diving with persons with disabilities, it was decided that every year and in every PETER Point around the world, PETER Diving will be inviting many of those who thought they they would never be able to experience the wonder of diving.
The only maintenance your PETER Diving system needs is a simple rinse with fresh water to remove sand and seaweed after every dive.
Anybody is free to dive with PETER Diving System or buy a kit, as it is with any other diving equipment that meets the international standards.
However, local regulations for recreational diving are different for each region. It is responsibility of the diver to be aware of these laws and fulfill them.
Internationally patented, PETER Diving System was invented by Spanish family Escaño, who have always been related to the sea.
1970’s - First idea came about when Mr. Escaño ran a business based on extracting seaweed to market to cosmetic and food production companies.
1990’s - First prototypes created only for the enter- tainment of Mr. Escaño’s son.
2011 - The PETER Professional was developed as the main tool on board a boat whose purpose was to clean and monitor the sea.
2013 - Commercial diving operations based on the use of PETER Diving System started to open the door of the underwater world to many people who never thought they would be able to dive, even persons with disabilities. Nowadays, thousands have met marine life and become certified PETER Divers. Their ratings have made PETER Diving climb up to #1 activity in Tripadvi- sor rankings.
2016 - PETER Yacht will be launched with the aim of becoming the best on-board entertainment tool, but also bringing solutions to yacht maintenance and emergency duties.
All PETER Diving products come with two years warranty from the date of purchase.
PETER Diving equipments are top range products, manufactured and ensembled with great care to ensure a long useful life provided they are used carefully and well maintained.
