OrcaTorch – top quality dive lights available from SEA & SEA



[box style=”0″]



Established in 1972, SEA & SEA Ltd has a long reputation as the UK’s leading independent supplier of recreational and technical diving gear and underwater photography equipment. SEA & SEA only distribute the highest quality products and it takes a very special product range to feature in their brand porfolio, such as OrcaTorch.

Why Orca? Quality products at very competitive prices

OrcaTorch products are made from aircraft-grade aluminium (AL-6061-T6) in order to be lightweight but tough. They are coated with an upgraded premium Type-III military hard-anodised finish to stand up to the most extreme environments and provide better resistance to seawater corrosion.

Durable CREE LED’s and constant current circuits ensure maximum conversion of power to light. Instead of getting dimmer as the battery drains, OrcaTorch lights keep a certain brightness until the battery is totally flat.

Aluminium alloy reflectors and professional optical designs give each OrcaTorch an efficient and even light beam. All OrcaTorch dive lights feature a 4mm ‘super thick’ toughened glass, coated on both sides. The anti-abrasive coating on the outside provides great scratch-resistance and the anti-reflection coating on the inside reduces light loss.

Every OrcaTorch dive light has to pass a 150m hydrostatic pressure test and is depth rated to 150m.

Our pick of the OrcaTorch range
