    Here at Dive Right In Scuba we pride ourselves on bringing the best and toughest equipment to divers both locally and around the world. Coupled with the highest standard of customer service and you have the family vision for a local dive shop that spans the globe. In keeping with that tradition of excellence in product research and customer relations, we at DRIS are both excited and proud to partner with Halcyon Dive Systems!

    Who Is Halcyon Dive Systems?

    The team at Halcyon Dive Systems sums it up the best for themselves by saying; “Halcyon began as a group of divers who knew exactly what they wanted but couldn’t find it in any dive store. Our passion for the dive led us to business. We started designing wings and lights to satisfy ourselves. However, we soon discovered that we were not alone in our pursuit of equipment that could radically improved the diving comfort of the newest recreational diver while also supporting the most aggressive technical dives ever completed. Our founders, as well as current owners and senior management, have a long history as diving pioneers with diverse backgrounds, ranging from academia to manufacturing and consulting. However, they share one common thread: an average of 20 years of dives in each of their logbooks.”

    What Type Of Scuba Gear Does Halcyon Make?

    Halcyon Dive Systems makes just about every piece of dive equipment imaginable from recreational BCD’s, regulators, lift and alert markers, drysuit accessories, lights, and rebreathers. They are also known for product innovation. The perfect example can be seen in their cinch quick adjust harness system. The emphasis on product equipment and testing has a longstanding history at Halcyon. Their history in product comes with an interesting story told best by them.”Much of Halcyon’s reputation was earned through the hard work of underwater cave exploration in Florida, Europe, and Mexico. In the company’s early days, Halcyon product development meetings were likely to be held in a Tallahassee sushi bar after a hard weekend of cave exploration. Everyone would debate about how the current wing made a dive more or less comfortable, or how changing a material would be an improvement. While some of us were putting the gear through its paces in the caves, others were doing the same on wreck and reefs from the Baltic to the Caribbean. As soon as the feedback filtered in, a new batch of wings with the suggested changes in place would roll out of the factory, made better by the previous two weekends of diving. Halcyon is still one of the only major dive manufacturers to house a significant amount of production capability in one location. Our High Springs, Florida, factory affords us unparalleled ability to design, prototype, build, and test gear in one place. Our product development team includes most of the senior staff at Halcyon and the input of a select team of divers worldwide.”

    A Partnership in Dive Equipment Excellence

    With all of this in mind you can surely see that the partnership between the team here at DRIS and the good folks down in High Springs, Florida at Halcyon is sure to bring you some of the best dive equipment and quality customer service experiences in the industry. So check out the Halcyon line at Dive Right in Scuba and take your underwater experience to the next level!

    And use a sans serif typeface. Times New Roman and other serif faces are hard enough to read, especially in electronic media. Use a serif face in grey and it's even worse. That's probably why you also made it bold... which simply muddies it further and makes it even harder on the eyes.

    There's a reason that even the New York Times doesn't use Times New Roman online.
