into the deep.

The Gombessa Expe­di­ti­ons, which Laurent Ballesta has been leading for years, are his lifeblood and have taken him and his team to very special places. To dive with 700 sharks in Fakarava, deep under the icebergs in Ant­ar­c­ti­ca, with the coela­canths in South Africa or a full 28 days in a hyper­ba­ric chamber in the Mediterranean.

SEACAM housings are perfectly designed, reliable and ergonomic – unique devices and access­ories ready for depths of up to ‑200 meters.
