Best Surface Marker Buoy for Scuba Diving

Surface markers are a necessity for any diver who plans on drift diving, diving with a small group, or who simply wants an extra measure of safety. Having a surface marker, also known as a safety sausage or dive float, is great for alerting a boat that you have surfaced and making retrieval easy.

There are many instances where a dive flag float is necessary:

  • Coming up too far away from the boat and need to signal
  • Emergency surfaces
  • Surfacing around boat traffic
  • Rough seas making surface visibility tough

There are many dive markers available with some being better than others. With over 100 dives under my belt, below are the surface marker buoys I would recommend broken down for easy viewing.
