Inexpensive Waterproof Compass Review

Sometimes having a compass with you while scuba diving is extremely handy.  And some of the electronic compasses that you find on higher end dive computers (electronic compasses) need to be calibrated too often in order to be useful if you forget to do so right before your dive.

Here’s a cool compass from ScubaPro for under $100…

I ordered one of these ScubaPro compasses and it’ll be here in a couple of days.  After I receive it, I’ll take some pics and edit this article with their addition.  Also, we’ll get these into the water soon and check them out and report back.

Precise Navigation Anywhere in the World

The FS-2 compass provides a unique tilt angle of up to 35 degrees, making it easier to read and operate in almost any position.

With a floating magnet separate from the compass rose, the FS-2 has greater operating freedom than conventional compasses. This means you can use the same compass for both Northern and Southern hemispheres, making it the perfect navigation instrument for traveling divers.

Technical Information

  • Scratch-resistant and durable oil-filled polycarbonate case.
  • Highly luminous dial for easy reference in low light conditions.
  • Side view window for easy and accurate navigation.
  • P/N: 05.017.101.

And here’s a compass from Phantom Aquatics for under $30

The build quality and feel of the Phantom Aquatics Compass is decent.  -Not great.  Not terrible.  I like that it’s made in Taiwan as opposed to being made in China.  That usually means better build quality and attention to detail IMHO.

Happy and SAFE diving!




Guardian Of The Reef on Grand Cayman

Guardian Of The Reef is a bronze statue that was sunk in about 65 feet of water just off the coast and is easily accessible as a shore dive from Divetech’s front yard on Grand Cayman.  In order to access the dive site from the shore, you have to start out in a man made ocean pool and then traverse a cut through the sea rocks out to the Caribbean Sea.  It’s a lot of fun to do and my family and I can’t wait to do it again!  Very very cool!

I’m in a hurry getting ready for a dive coming up in a couple of hours so, I’m being lazy and not including pics of the pool and cut that we used to enter the ocean on this shore dive.  Will include that later for sure.  Also, you’ll have to turn your head sideways in order to truly appreciate some of these pics.  Sorry for the picture formatting laziness/lack of time.  😉

Viz wasn’t that great on this dive as the ocean was a bit choppy but, how fun!  Check out the artist that made this statue, The Guardian of the Reef.  More later!
