Scuba Diving Safety Gear

Scuba divers can be hard to spot in the water, even a relatively short distance from a boat or shore if conditions are rough. Signaling devices are important pieces of safety equipment that help scuba divers be seen and heard if they need assistance. If you are diving from a boat you should always display a dive flag to signal to other water users that there are divers below. If you are diving from the shore, it is safe practice to attach a dive flag to a floating bouy, to signal your position. Surface Marker Buoys (SMBs), or safety sausages, are another signalling device used to attract attention to yourself at the surface. They are a long bright orange or yellow inflatable signal tube that you use to get the attention of someone when on the surface and being so long, they can be seen over choppy waters. They are generally made of PVC or canvas and are approx 1.5m in length. They can be inflated by mouth or from air in your tank and can potentially get you found if lost. An SMB by law needs to be carried with you at all times. Another item that most divers will have on them is a marine whistle which again is to get the attention of someone when you need help on the surface. Other items that you may want and need in certain situations can include a compass, an underwater shaker and a writing slate. All of these items can help in times of need, whether to attract the attention of your buddy, or to find your way back to the mooring line.
