"When surfacing far from the tender and or in current, there’s great comfort in using our DiveAlerts to signal to the crew where we are.”

“I’ve been using the DiveAlert for nearly 25 years now and never go in the water on a dive without it. I recommend it to everyone I dive with as an essential piece of safety equipment. After 48 years of professional diving, I will turn the corner on 19,000 career logged dives this year and I only wish I’d had the DiveAlert available earlier. It’s a superlative product and I highly recommend it to all.”

"DiveAlert provides a tremendous safety edge. I urge every diver to carry this unique safety device. It could save their lives, literally."

"When the chips are down my DiveAlert Plus just might prove to be the most valuable piece of diving equipment I own. Why wouldn’t it be part of my gear package?"

"The persistent charges of a dozen agitated sharks forced me to surface from a decompression dive prematurely. It was a bad situation, but it would have been unthinkably worse had I not been carrying DiveAlert."

"Our continuing commitment to safety demands that all rental regulators aboard our vessels be fitted with the DiveAlert! I am confident in my conviction to personally endorse this product. DiveAlert is the seat belt of diving."

Today:

"Never leave home without it! Still use it, still believe in it, still ensure any boat I am involved with uses them too!"

"I make more than 350 dives a year, often in unpredictable conditions and remote locations. After surfacing in a raging current, I discovered that the panga driver had decided to take a nap. Without DiveAlert, I would've been miles away. I never dive without one."

"There is nothing worst than coming up from a dive to find that the panga is so far away the driver can't see you. That's why my DiveAlert has come with me on over 2000 dives. I forget it's there until I need it. Then I'm sure happy I have it and that it has been as durable and reliable as it has been. After 20 years it still works every time. I just upgraded to the DiveAlert Plus and am looking forward to 2000 more dives."

"The persistent charges of a dozen agitated sharks forced me to surface from a decompression dive prematurely. It was a bad situation, but it would have been unthinkably worse had I not been carrying DiveAlert."

Today:

"I still never dive without my DiveAlert (and LifeLine) and I insist that each and every one of our guests has a DiveAlert before they get in the water with us."

"Without DiveAlert, I might still be floating off the coast of Costa Rica. I was too far away for my safety sausage, but DiveAlert caught the boat's attention. I thank you. My Mom thanks you. We now require DiveAlert of all our guests on every trip."

"We specialize in adventuresome diving whether it’s the icebergs of Alaska or the friendly giants of Socorro. The one thing that remains the same is that we require our guests to carry DiveAlert."

"We firmly believe DiveAlert is so vital to safe drift diving that we require it on every guest aboard our Aggressor fleet in Palau. We insist on the best and DiveAlert has passed the test… time and time again."

UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHER

"DiveAlert probably kept me from being eaten by a crocodile or by a horde of mosquitoes. With DiveAlert the tender quickly found me and turned what could have been an all-night stay in a Raja Ampat mangrove swamp into a non-issue."

UNDERWATER CINEMATOGRAPHER

"At Cocos Island the currents can be wild. I surfaced over 100 yards away from the pickup Zodiac. One blast from my DiveAlert and they saw me. It’s simply attached, effective and could be a life saver. I wouldn’t leave home without it."
