About Aquasphere

Established in Genoa, Italy in 1998, Aquasphere is a premium swimming brand featuring unparalleled design, development, and manufacturing expertise. Inspired by extensive experience in the scuba diving industry, the brand was launched after Italian engineers, P. Ferraro and G. Beltrani, created the first curved lens with no visibility distortion, and thus launched the first swim mask – The Seal. From this creative ingenuity, Aquasphere quickly became the swim eyewear expert. Through our in-house R&D Department and manufacturing facilities in Italy, we design and craft high quality swim goggles that combine performance, reliability, and comfort. With more than 30 years of research, our craftsmanship is based on advanced patented technologies and high-quality materials, driven by our swimming community.
