  • Dawn says:

    I love the waterproof backpack – it’s a great idea for when you’re out and about, stops all the stuff you carry getting wet when it rains unexpectedly!

  • Hi – what a great list – and not only for divers! I have the Nikon Coolpix camera, and it’s awesome, it’s great that it’s simple enough that my kids can use it too, and it’s tough enough, as well as waterproof! I’ll be able to put some of these items on my wishlist!

  • Linda says:

    What a great post. Thank you for all the ideas for the scuba diver. I am not but my grandson is. He has a Go Pro and loves it. The water proof phone bag would be great as well as others.

  • Mecala M. says:

    So, Christmas is around the corner and there are some great gifts here for any diver, snorkler, kayaker, skier, or really anyone who loves the water!
    I am seriously considering the GoPro for my daughter and her boyfriend. They would be thrilled as they practically live in the ocean! Thank you for your great site and helpful reviews!

    Love your options for gift ideas. I love to kayak so the waterproof camera case and dry bag will go on my list. I like the Fujifilm Finepix X90 waterproof camera idea. That is a great price and a better option when in the water than using my smartphone at a much higher price to replace if it get wet. Thanks for the reviews!
