  • 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.

    Bubbles are required. Well, most of the time.......

      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.
