SeaSigns Fun & Safety Signing

COST: USD 50 Have you ever needed to communicate with your dive buddy under water?Waiting until your surface interval just to communicate can be frustrating. Whether you are having a problem or just want to point out something cool, keeping good communication with your buddy can make the difference between an "okay" dive and a "great" fun and safe dive.Communication alternatives have limitations...There are many forms of underwater communication on the market today, such as specialized gear and slates. Special gear is very expensive. Using slates can be awkward and slow. Even the hand signals commonly taught lack an adequate vocabulary to truly communicate effectively. Hand signals also can vary widely between agencies which can create confusion between two divers trained by different agencies.SeaSigns is simple and fun!SeaSigns offers a simple and fun solution.
