Comments about Dive Alert Deluxe Surface Marker Buoy:

I was very excited to finally find a dual colour smb. This stood me out from the other guides at dive sites so my boat captain could find us easily. Unfortunately it has a number of small tears in it and deflates halfway on the surface now. I've tried patching it but they fall off. It's was an expensive sausage so I thought it would last longer. 6 months daily use was about all I got out of it. It's a little wide so difficult to fit in BCD pocket too. Probably suit a diver that doesn't use it every day like I did.

    Comments about Dive Alert Deluxe Surface Marker Buoy:

    Solid construction, easy to use, very durable, by far one of the best dive buey's Ive seen. Had a hard time finding a place to stow this due to it being a little bulky. One draw back to this buey is that you cannot place your dive light within the buey to illuminate it at night. I fixed this by just adding a marker strobe to the top. This buey will work when you need it most, very good investment.

    Comments about Dive Alert Deluxe Surface Marker Buoy:

    I purchased this for night diving and open Ocean Wreck diving. The reflective tape and large size are perfect for recovery if currents bring you up away from the boat, visible even in swells. I added a compact strobe with a quicklink to the top of the buoy for additional safety. Combine these with a storm whistle, and your odds of recovery are even greater.

    I have not 'had' to use them yet, but practicing with them and having them along on the dive brings confidence and peace of mind.

    NOTE: This item is bulky. I added a pouch (small 1/2 mesh Eagle Creek) to the bottom of my BC backplate (using zip ties and quick links) to hold the SMB, strobe, and finger spool. This keeps it within easy reach and out of the way during my dives. The pouch attached by quick links makes it easy to add or remove based on my dive environment or needs.

    I would NOT purchase this for daytime river drift diving. Most people would want an SMB that is MUCH smaller as there are typically not ocean sized swells on a river limiting visibility.

    Was easy to inflate and did exactly as it was supposed to do. Not overly bulky, not tiny either. Probably should have come with a clip.

    Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

    Questions about this item:

    Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
    Jaime V  This SMB is a great item. It has a very good size, two different colours which makes it stand out in the middle of the ocean and the pressure release valve is great to quickly deflate the SMB when climbing onto the boat.
    Joe H  So, you have to unsnap (power inflator hose) fitting from BC, snap onto SMB fitting, fill SMB, unsnap hose fitting and then re-snap to BC? Hmmm
    GEORGE E  simply hold back up reg.to mouth of sausage tap purge button (carefully) and your all set.
    Shopper  how big is it both inflated and rolled for storage ?
    Steve S  When inflated this marker buoy is 65" long by 8" wide. When rolled up it is very small. Small enough to fit in a pocket.
