n 1949, Ludovico Mares designed and manufactured his first masks and spearguns with one dream and purpose in mind: To share his unbridled passion for the sea and diving with the rest of the world. At its birth, Mares was just one small factory in Rapallo, but now, only 60 years later, the Italian based company dominates the scuba diving world, and is at the forefront of new and innovative dive technologies. Over the past six decades, Mares has come a long way, by achieving new goals, taking diving to new and extreme heights and depths. The
Mares name represents only the best in dive products.
Guided by this principle, Mares has become a worldwide leader in the manufacturing and distribution of state-of-the-art diving equipment, and continually sets new industry standards. The constant investment in innovation, the unceasing, patient research in the field of manufacturing materials and processes, combined with the expertise of our staff and a creative, professional approach grants Mares its leading position and makes our brand a synonym of quality, safety and reliability. The best of Mares is wrapped up in every product to
meet the needs of each single diver. Enjoy diving with advanced performance through superior technology: this is our mission.
Discover all that Mares has to offer: you will find a collection of new fantastic products where superior technology and emotion is at the core.
But this result wouldn’t have been possible without our undisputed love for the sea, an all-encompassing vocation rooted in the history of our legendary founder that is felt powerfully by everyone at Mares. Although we manufacture our products using state-of-the-art machinery and use the most sophisticated electronic equipment, the core of our business and the spark that makes everything happen is still the same today as it was 60 years ago: Passion.
