Orca Apnea Products
Orca Apnea Products was started in 2002 to manufacture equipment for the 3 primary breath-hold disciplines; namely Spearfishing, Freediving and Underwater Hockey.
Since those earlier days of trying to produce everything we have slowly evolved through a process of elimination to where we are today - a manufacturer specialising in Spearfishing Equipment and Underwater Hockey Pucks.
From small beginnings where we only supplied the local market we have grown to the point where 95% of our business is export based. The Orca brand is synonymous with quality and we are continually striving to refine, improve and increase the range of products available.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our products are not mass produced, 90% of our raw materials are produced in South Africa and our products made to order. Some spearfishing equipment manufacturers lay claim to being able to 'produce 300 guns per day', simply because most of their components are pre-made in Asia and all they have to then do is put in a couple of screws, or pack the items in their own-brand packaging.
Working together with a local engineering company we started creating our own brand of spears which, through intense R&D, has resulted in us being one of the few companies in the world that can offer 6.1mm, 6.6mm, 7mm, 7.5mm and 8mm spears in 2000MPa spring steel. Our motto on spear manufacture is "You specify - we quote and produce"
Orca products are available through a distribution network of National Dealers who in turn have their own networks within their countries or regions.
