As every diver knows, safety is the #1 priority on any dive. This safety whistle is a lightweight and easy device to bring along but goes a long way in the safety department.

Nothing is worse than seeing an expensive dive accessory making its way to the ocean floor.

It can then be put on the wrist or connected to the BC. Available in several colors, including bright colors making it easier to spot underwater.

Reef Safe Mask Defogger 

Anti-fog Gel for Dive Masks

Nothing can ruin a dive faster than a foggy mask. Having to constantly put water in and out to get that fog off the lens is one big pain. Which is why no divers bag should be without an anti-fog product. This mask defogger goes the extra mile and is reef safe and made with all natural products. You can get alot of happy divers (and fish/coral) by giving this little bottle as a scuba diving gift.

Ocean Themed Note Cards

Underwater Note Cards

I thinks these note cards are just beautiful. Sharp and vibrant, they display close-up pictures of underwater life.
