Lights

Wide range of dive lights for scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as underwater photography and videography. 

HOW TO CHOOSE A DIVE LIGHT:

Use: A primary dive light is typically bigger and brighter, durable, has long runtime, and can be used for both daytime and night diving or snorkeling. A backup light is there if anything happens to your primary light, so they are typically smaller, more compact, and not necessarily as bright. A tank marker light is usually very small but bright, as it will tell other divers where you are in the water. The main thing to look for when choosing a light for scuba diving is to ensure that it is not only waterproof, but also pressure rated to avoid flooding underwater. All of our dive lights are pressure rated for scuba diving.

Beam: A dive light, whether it is used during the daytime or night, should have a nice spot type beam. It needs to penetrate the water and murkiness so you can see further and into the cracks and crevices. A video light needs to have a nice bright, wide beam so that the light is evenly distributed in the video. A spot beam will show up as a bright spot dancing around in your video. A focus (or red) beam light is great for focusing a camera underwater without spooking the fish and marine life.

Bulb: Traditional Xenon (incandescent) lights are typically more yellowish in color, warmer and more natural. LED lights give off more of a white, bluish beam, similar to a fluorescent light. An LED light is brighter, more intense, and has a much longer lifespan.
