The Vaquita is packed with sensors for comprehensive data collection to document the conditions of the ocean: conductivity, temperature, depth, and location (GPS).

The GPS sensor makes it possible for divers to share their dive footage as pins on the map, available in the Paralenz App. This new feature enables users to view dives from all over the world to seek inspiration or research conditions for future dive trips, and get a clear overview of where they have been and where they want to go. With every dive consumers share as a story through the Paralenz App, they are also sharing valuable ocean data from their dive with marine scientists and conservation organizations worldwide, and help them in their mission to save our ocean.

Why “Vaquita?”

The Paralenz Vaquita is designed for people who seek out the Ocean as a place to fulfill their longing for exploration, adventure, or the pure joy of feeling weightless underwater. No matter if you are a scuba diver, tech diver, free diver, surfer, snorkeler, or just love to get your feet wet — if your destination is the ocean, the Paralenz Vaquita offers the best possible recording experience for everybody.

As an ocean company, Paralenz feels obligated to educate and inspire, and therefore chose to integrate the mission of ocean regeneration in the name of its newest camera. According to IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), the Vaquita whale is a critically endangered marine species with less than 19 in existence. Their sad story raises awareness about how human interests impact the livelihood of entire species, wiping them out entirely for profit. The “Vaquita” is a tribute to the ones that remain.
