Love this attachment. I havent seen anything better to get help. Be carful of which one you buy. Different BCs are not all created the same and will require one of three different Dive Alert that will fit your respective BC.

Rating: Great!!
Reviewer: Daniel A.
Working for a dive operation in Brazil I always carry my divealert. I only had to use it once, when the current shifted and took me and a novice diver farther out into the ocean. The skipper immediately heard the whistle and promptly arranged for our pick up. A must with a deco marker for ocean diving.

Rating: Dont get caught w/o it
Reviewer: Scott Michael  -  View all my reviews
I never dive in open ocean without a dive alert. I needed another one so I bought it. Just make sure not to test it without covering the horn with your hand unless you want to hack off everyone in the dive boat. The output is LOUD and can damage your hearing. If you have to use it in the water I would suggest covering the ear nearest to it.

Rating: Hope I never need it but...
Reviewer: Scott Michael  -  View all my reviews
I had one of these for my old inflator. When I switched to a ScubaPro Air2, I decided to upgrade to a Dive Alert Plus with a Type III connector. You can read my negative review of that device elsewhere. I returned it and purchased a standard Dive Alert with a type III connector. Just remember to always rinse it out after using it in salt water and when you blow the water out of it after rinsing, PLEASE for the sake of your ears and those around you, keep your palm over the bell of the horn. I accidentally hit it before a dive in St. Lucia last month and my ears are still ringing.

Required by most Capt.s, seems pricey when a Storm whistle works very well.

I have not yet had a chance to use it, but I purchased it because I was impressed with the system my dive buddy has. Ill let you know when I get to dive with it. Hopefully, i will never need to use it!

Rating: WOW!
Reviewer: Scott T.  -  View all my reviews
I found the Dive Alert to be a great purchase. It is one of those things that you hope you will never have to use but is comforting to know you have it. It is extremely loud so do not point is at anyone when you activate it.

Rating: dive alert standard
Reviewer: joel tobey  -  View all my reviews
The dive alert was shipped in a timely manner. The next weekend I took it on a dive to try it out. It did all that was said in the advertisement for the product. It was so loud my dive buddy told me not to use it again unless I had to that the sound would hurt her ears. I do alot of ocean diving and after seeing the movie "Open Water" I decided that this was necessary for ocean diving with dive groups as I never want to be left behind.

Reviewer: Tony Mangubat  -  View all my reviews
A signaling device is essential safety equipment. This one is very loud above water and effective. Below water, it is useless and banging on our tanks is still the method of choice. Tony M
