iAQUA AquaDart Nano 520 Explorer - INFORMATION

The AquaDart Nano, with its unique patented Dual-Jet™ technology has revolutionised the professional dive scooter market, delivering power to weight ratio's never before thought possible.

The 520 Explorer is world's most affordable professional dive scooter - a true testament to the skills of iAQUA's designers and engineers. Weighing only 22 kg this extremely powerful machine is an ideal lightweight diving scooter that can be used for over two hours before recharging.

Patented Dual-Jet Propulsion System

The patented drive system delivers up to 60% more thrust than comparable jet systems. While other propulsion systems lose 50% of power due to tunnel turbulence, the iAqua technology shines at all levels. Similar to an aircraft engine, all the energy is harnessed to give you great power and acceleration at lower RPMs. This furthermore results in lower battery consumption that will have a lasting impact on your experience.


The engineers have succeeded in developing a scooter that is also 50% lighter than the competition. In addition, the size has been reduced by over 30%. With a weight of only 22 kg, transportation becomes a breeze.

Leading Performance

Looking at the Nano's performance, you might think it defies physics. With 520 Explorer accelerating to top speed in seconds, the joy is limitless. The possibilities on the market have been redefined so you simply can't find anything comparable.

Perfect Choice

With a big step up from the AquaDart Nano 450 series, the Nano 520 Explorer boosts power to 520 Newtons of thrust, taking you to a whopping top speed of 18 km/h. The power-to-weight ratio is 23.6 newtons of thrust per kg. It is also equipped with an onboard accelerometer. This gauge provides you with an "attitude indicator" formerly known as a gyro horizon meter, designed for featureless water and low light diving.

Easy Operation

The patented single-operation control triggers make for simple and easy operation. It can be controlled either left- or right-handed or set to dual trigger operation for safety reasons. All user information is visiblein any situation due to the super-bright 5-inch display which screen shows battery level, speed, depth and more.

Award Winning Scooters

iAQUA manufactured the world's most reliable, and highest performing sea scooters. They were named by several Yachting Pages as the Outright Winner of the world best water toys.

Advanced Features

The Nano is also unique in that it is equipped with an on-board accelerometer. This meter provides you with an attitude indicator formally known as a gyro horizon meter. This useful device provides an artificial horizon reading as well as pitch and roll giving degrees of climb/descent and lateral banking.


The Nano 620 Max has the World’s best power-to-weight ratio of any dive scooter – by more than 20%, and the second best is the Nano 520 Explorer! It gives you an incredible 28 Newtons of thrust per kg! For sheer power-to-weight, even the AquaDart Pro 770 Extreme – the World’s fastest dive scooter ‘only’ delivers 21 Newtons of thrust per kg. A true testament to the skills of the engineers at iAQUA, and their unique Dual-Jet technology. This incredible thrust can propel you through the water at speeds of up to 21 km/h and accelerates in under 3 seconds.
