Dessault America is the importer and distributor of H.Dessault, the highly reputed French spearfishing and free diving equipments.
Divers and spearfishermen have known and heard of H.Dessault innovative equipments over more than 30 years now, but these have not always been distributed or made available in the American regions.
This is why we launched Dessault America, a new organization closely linked with H.Dessault factory in France, to promote and distribute the complete range of H.Dessault products.
We invite you now to explore our webpages, you will find the detailed catalogue of equipments and articles we have available as well as: history, news, tutorials, resources, photos, videos and more.
Dessault-America is also an authorized Repair Shop for the whole H.DESSAULT gear.
Thank you again for your visit, dive safe and enjoy your browsing.

Our company is dedicated to the promotion of H.Dessault equipment, safe free diving and responsible spearfishing.
Spearfishing and free diving are extraordinary sports, accessible to most persons, but shall not be taken lightly.
Dessault America acknowledges that free diving is an extreme sport and the consequence of what would be an incident could turn into drama.
We believe in safety and responsible attitude. “The goal should not be to catch the bigger fish now, but to live longer to catch more of them!”
For these reasons, Dessault America supports education, training, socialization and preach the following rules:
Rule No.1 Never free dive alone, employ direct supervision & safety which includes:
*One Up - One Down
*Wait 30 sec on surface supervising your partner
*Weight yourself for positive buoyancy on surface with exhalation
*Apply a minimum double bottom time for your subsequent surface intervals
