The percentage of divers unrecovered by dive boats
due to them not being seen in the water is alarmingly high!
A diver on the surface being swept sea-ward by a retreating tide
happens all to many times.
A diver in distress, no buddy in sight, surface conditions deteriorating. Panic sets in!
All too many times divers perish simply because they have not been seen.
These examples of true life experiences have been our catalyst to try to come up with an idea to enable a diver to be recovered
a lot sooner than they are at the moment.
We have our surface marker buoys. We have whistles. We shout.
We have air horns, strobes and torches, and sure enough in a lot
of cases due to us as divers being at sea level with a rolling swell
and the wind in the wrong direction they are all but useless. Too
many times divers who have experienced these conditions say the
same thing every time - they could see the boat but it couldn't
Diver flare gives divers a more than fighting chance of being
that recovered diver. With a pyrotechnic flare on hand, on every
Dry, ready to use, with a full minute's burn time and in
your hand in less than a few seconds has to be our best
chance to be recovered. The distance it can be seen on the surface
of the sea far outweighs any other piece of equipment a diver carries.
We believe our diver flare will save lives and if it only saves one we will have achieved what we originally set out to do.
