About

Our Origins:

Back in 1994, our founder faced a dilemma: Get wet, or get waterproof. Whether trekking in Nepal, mountain biking in China, or on some other exotic adventure, his kit kept getting soaked. His solution: Design the world's first waterproof money belt, the AquaRoo. Initially prototyped out of duct tape, the 'Roo is the original waterproof product behind the AquaQuest brand, and remains a bestseller 25 years later!

Our Operations:

Located in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, Canada we have designed and tested waterproof gear in some of the wettest environments on the planet. Headquartered in Courtenay, BC, we sell direct to customers all across the globe, and offer customer service in more than a half-dozen languages. We stock our full line of products in Canada, USA, UK, Germany, and Japan, allowing us to provide fast shipping to nearly every country on earth. 

Our store:

In 2019, as part of 25th anniversary celebrations, we opened a brand new AQ store in Courtenay, BC, bringing our popular products and waterproof expertise to the local Comox Valley outdoor adventure scene.  Prices at the AQ store are guaranteed to be the lowest available anywhere on earth for each and every AQ product!

To further support our island community and ecosystem we have also implemented a revolutionary business model for called Halfitalism.  Each and every year, half of our store's net profits are invested into local social and environmental causes.
