Enjoy Freedom of Movement with Unlimited Air Supply with Direct Drive Hookah!
Traditional scuba gear is heavy and bulky. With The Air Line by J Sink's hookah dive system, you can explore underwater worlds with streamlined freedom of movement, like when snorkeling. The perfect alternative to scuba diving tanks, the hookah dive system consists of an air compressor at the surface that continually pumps air to divers through long hoses. This alternative to using scuba diving tanks frees the divers from wearing heavy, bulky diving tanks on their back, so they have unencumbered freedom of movement like snorkeling, but with unlimited air, and no tank fills. Equipment for the hookah dive system is lightweight, compact, and occupies far less space and weight on a boat compared to scuba diving tanks gear. And The Air Line by J Sink's hookah dive systems are easy to use, because less gear is involved.

What does the word, “hookah” mean and why is it used?
The word, “hookah” is Turkish. Over 500 years ago the Turks devised a way of cooling smoking tobacco by inserting the tobacco bowl into a water jug. They attached flexible hoses to the bowl using pitch to seal it. The hoses, being partially submerged in the water, cooled the smoke as it was inhaled by the smokers. It was a common way for men to socialize, and many decisions, including life-and-death ones, were made during a hookah experience.
Hookah smoking eventually found popularity throughout the entire Middle East, where it is still practiced, socially, in homes and in cafes.
The word is sometimes, erroneously, credited to the Arabs thanks to the 1940’s Hollywood, B movies that showed a bunch of Arabian sheiks sitting in a tent smoking.
During the late 1800’s, divers, from Greece were employed to harvest sponges while wearing copper hard hats with air hoses going to the surface. Manual and, ultimately, electric and fuel driven pumps, provided air to the divers below. The Greeks, historically, also had experience with hookah smoking, as Greece is a neighbor of Turkey and the similarity of a gas (air) passing through cooling waters didn’t go unnoticed.
Hookah diving was born and the name still sticks.
