This float is great and light weight, it fits in my dive bag. I filled the bottom with sand so it would stand up in the water better.

Used this for shore diving in Pensacola FL area. Had it attached to a spool of rope I bought from [...] and it worked fine. It was very easy to pull through the surf and currents.The only downside is the bottom weight area. seems like I could get enough water in there for it to stay upright soundly.

Being a safe diver is important more and more people are boating each year and there is increased watercraft traffic in our favorite dive sites. This Vinyl Inflatable Float with Traditional Red & White Diver-Down Flag is compact when deflated for easy storage, yet highly visible when inflated on the surface. The flag is removable, and the float has Diver Below printed on the sides. Float is easy to inflate with standard air matt pop-out stem valve.

Can't beat it for the price

A bit flimsy and I'm not sure if the flag will fly away in winds, but the float itself is a nice marker to show boaters we are under the water. Good enough for what I am looking for.

Great little

By Henry T.

from Clearwater , FL, US

Compact and convenient works tremendous

 

Diver Float Works Well

By Dale S.

Inexpensive Dive flag easily blows up and works well. Looks as indicated on site. Very adequate for the price.

 

Airline travel flag

By CARL B.

Easy to pack, better for travel than the typical flag. After exiting dive deflate slightly to make it easier to carrry with camera and other dive gear. Used many times when flying and diving in Florida, cheaper than renting a flag daily. Must fill bottom with water for stability.

dive any where

have not used in ocean but great in lakes and near shore

 

Useful and it's don't take much place

By Bruno

Very fast delivery

 

Perfect

By

Great for travel or for local. Can use as an assent line if needed. Highly visible. Not sure if it meets all legal guidelines but I think it is clearer to non divers than a dive flag alone.

 

Great product and best service!

By Key P.

I have a dual use for it. If snorkeling from the beach, as a "Diver Below" signal to boaters. If snorkeling from a boat (with a 'Diver Below' flag attached to it)...as the end buoy of a transom safety line to help with currents.

 

BE SAFE

By curly

If you dive in lakes or rivers this float is a must. A few boaters have a six pack or two running through their vains and are not paying too much attention. This float will help to let people know a diver is in the water and may prevent a watercraft from running over you. In California the law requires you to have a float if your diving in a lake. It deflates and packs easy into your dive bag, great for travel. It has two chambers, the lower chamber fills with water to give it weight, the upper chamber you inflate with air. I just added a one pound weight to the bottom and I did not have to add water to the lower chamber.

Works Great

By Mitch M.

Pretty neat product. Works like an inflatable beach ball, but the plastic is a little heavier. It has a pocket on the bottom to put ballast and I would suggest putting some lead fishing weights in there. Worked great for me.

 

Easy to stow

By JIM W.

Good for nav class, drift. Good markers, easy to set-up, take down and stow.

Great compact travel divers flag

By Oursearay

We wanted a lightweight dive flag to use for snorkeling that could be packed in the dive bag for travel anywhere. This was the perfect solution for the recreational snorkeler.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is there a way to attach this buoy to a plastic tether that can be attached to a swim suit or upper arm?
BRUCE B  There is a location on the bottom to attach a tether. For snorkeling we use a 10' cord with a Velcro wrist strap for Diving we use a 100 foot real.
MARVIN N  Yes, you can connect a tether to the water fill plug that is on the bottom. The problem with pulling the float this way can lead to the flag pulling out and separating from the float. So I tied a string to the flag and to the water fill plug. I then connected the tether to the string to keep from losing the flag. Marvin
Claude P  There is an attachment point located on the bottom of the buoy for the purpose of anchoring the buoy that could be used to attach a tether
JOHN M  There is an eye ring on bottom of float, yu can attach a line here .
MILOSZ S  It has a small plastic loop at the bottom, so yes you can attach a spool easily to this buoy.
Shopper  How do you attach the flag to the float?
CHARLES W  The flag is on a hard plastic shaft that simply inserts into the top of the inflatable.
MIGUEL H  the flag is attached to a rigid plastic pole which inserts into a pocket in the center of the float body.
Dale M  The flag is PVC vinyl and is wrapped around a semi-rigid plastic dowel, which inserts into a sleeve down the middle of the inflatable ball portion of the buoy. This buoy has it's pros and cons. It's very inexpensive and compact, but it's inflatable like a pool toy, so you're probably gonna buy another one eventually. Also, there is no flag stiffener, so in low winds the flag lies limply. Another common complaint is that in high winds the flag comes out of the middle tube, so you can loose the flag. Also, it's only about 24" from tip to bottom, so the visibility isn't the greatest. But it IS cheap, and takes up basically zero space in your bag. IMO, you are better off spending another 20 bucks and getting the donut style Flag-n-Float, or the Pocket Buoy, both of which are also inflatable.
CHARLES E  There is a receptacle for th flag on top. Very easy to use and the flag is very stable even in rough seas.
RICHARD A  Hey! This is an efficient way to let boaters know you're in the water. Worth the price. The flag is on a plastic tube (think a stiff heavy soda straw). The float itself has a reinforced hole at the top that accepts the tube. It has remained stationary in moderate winds. There is a section at the bottom of the float for balast. Its a little tricky, but if you fill it with water it keeps everything upright. I like this (as a snorkeler only) for its portability. For serious open-water diving you might consider something more cumbersome but also more stable. Good buy for the buck, as always! Teacher Dick
ANDREW B  There is a plastic or fiberglass stick that goes through the side of the flag then sticks into the inflated section below. It stays in reasonably well as long as the lower section is fully inflated. It also has a pocket on the underside which is meant to be filled with water and then plugged back up. This keeps the float from tipping over and works pretty well. We use it on the boat as a second flag when diving that we drop on a weight a few hundred yards from the boat. Then we have a bigger one on the radio pole on the boat. The theory is we try to stay in the middle so we don't have to carry a flag and get tangled. I'd say if you are looking for an inexpensive flag that you can easily carry deflated in a bag then this one it pretty good. But if you are looking to use this as your only flag then there may be better (more expensive) options.
RUSSELL G  it just plugs into a hole in the top of the float. its removable.
Shopper  Is it possible to get a replacement flag?
LeisurePro S  The best replacement flag we have is here and can be attached to the vinyl float with some zip ties.
