Thread: Dive Buoys

    Default Dive Buoys

    I'm not a diver but have a question. Are divers required to have a buoy close to where they are diving or would the buoy be an optional safety practice?

    Optional safety practice.

    Some states do require by law that a diver have a flag out while diving from a boat. Florida law says you can use either a flag or buoy while diving from a boat.
    AK there is no such law as required but if you do have a flag out other boats are required to stay clear by a min 100'.

    Thanks, guys. I was trolling around Whittier and saw what I thought were herring thrashing around on the surface. Idled toward it until I could see it wasn't fish. Changed course at about 150' and awhile later 2 divers emerged at the "beach".
    when I fist spotted the bubbles, they were clear up by the point that turns into salmon run.
