We have these bad boys on the boat for our demo gear. When you book a trip ask to try our demo gear, so you can try it out before you buy it. Did you know we are giving a Fathom away? Yes, you heard that right! We are giving a Fathom away to our lucky S.O.N.A.R winner. (What is S.O.N.A.R click here for full details.)We will be announcing the S.O.N.A.R winner shortly.
