Shark Bite Scuba® and The Tank Dolly®

Thank you for trusting Shark Bite Scuba® with your gear

I am an underwater photographer, the inventor of The Tank Dolly® and the owner of Shark Bite Scuba®. 

You are on this site because you're searching for a better way to move your heavy gear, and reduce your trips to and from the boat or the dive site. I understand. The lack of an efficient method to move gear was our motivation to design The Tank Dolly®.

Not only do I have a dive bag, weight, and heavy tanks; I have a large camera bag, dry-bag, drysuit bag, undergarment bag, and a pony bottle. 

I have lots of gear, ask my dive buddies.

I am often asked about the origin of my company's name

I have been fascinated by sharks and scuba diving since I was a child. The word "bite" was added to create uniqueness and make light of the unwarranted concern that a shark might bite a diver.


My goal: Design a modular tank dolly to move scuba gear

I needed an effective method to move all my gear safely, securely, and with minimal effort

This concept was simple, but the engineering was not.

In 2008, I drew the first design of The Tank Dolly® on a cocktail napkin while flying home from a Costa Rica dive trip.

I built the first model of The Tank Dolly® from foam-board and attached the components with a hot glue gun.

Proudly Designed, Manufactured, and Assembled in the USA
