The LifeLine not only saved our bacon, but saved our trip.

On a recent dive we were hot dropping a wreck in 240'. The current was ripping like it always is there. We missed the wreck and by the time we came up after about 12 min. of deco the boat had lost track of us. We had blown SMBs quickly, but not quick enough. One of the other divers said "We're screwed, the boat still thinks we are on the wreck". I responded "No we are not screwed" I took out my Nautilus LifeLine and let the boat captain know we bounced, and our GPS position.

We soon saw the boat and talked them right over to us. We got right back on the boat, and decided that we would try for the wreck again, and this time we made it. The Nautilus not only saved our bacon, but saved our trip. You can't do that with an EPIRB.

In addition the digitally encoded GPS/distress signal was picked up instantly by Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville, and we where 30 nautical miles east from Port Canaveral. I believe that the other divers as well as the boat captain will be picking a Nautilus up in the near future.

Keeping the situation calm


Thought I’d pass along my first dive trip wearing the Lifeline you sent me. Went out last week to Nassau with a small group and the weather was borderline at best. There was about fourteen folks on the boat in addition to my group of four. They all asked about the LifeLine and of course me being me, I took them all through it. I got the reaction that I expected. Great device for Cocos or Galapagos but sure didn’t need it in Nassau.

On the second dive of the second day, our group was allowed to go off the wall while the rest of the less experienced divers stayed on a wreck up top. When we got to the wall the current increased dramatically so we turned into the current and went up the wall as best we could until we got to the end of the reef where it turned to sand. We turned to go over the reef and back to the boat when the already strong current went to a unmanageable current. There was no way to battle the current and no matter how hard you kicked the best you could do was maintain your position. Being in about 50 foot of water I knew that we would have to go up to do our safety stop and would be taken out to sea away from the boat.

Normally the situation would have put a great deal of concern on what to expect. I knew that if that LifeLine had not been with me, I would have been dealing with stress that could have turned to panic, if not for me for someone in my group. However, I knew that no matter where we surfaced we had no problem. It gave me the focus to concentrate on keeping the situation calm. Unlike all the other folks on the boat, I never had a concern that everything was anything but just fine!

Thanks again for sending it to me. All the other divers on that boat understand why having LifeLine with them no matter where they are diving was something they should have!

All the best,

Tropical storm in Grenada

Hi Captain Lever,

I have just returned from a weeks diving in Grenada, using my CCR. On the last dive, a group of 4 divers descended on the wreck of the Hemer 1, stayed in the water for 40 minutes max depth 100 feet. Great dive - warm and clear, loads of life.

We surfaced all together as a group deploying DSMB's before leaving the wreck. On surfacing a tropical storm had come over the area reducing the visibility to feet!! The dive boat had lost our DSMB's and us! We drifted away from the wreck, in very rough seas some 5 miles south of Grenada, in the Atlantic.

We carried 2 LifeLines between the group of 4, we called the boat using the green button, but due to the wind and rain nothing was heard. We tried the orange button, again nothing as lots of boats had made for shelter due to the conditions.

Finally, we fired off the Distress Mode, which was picked up by several boats and a search was started. We drifted 3 miles from the wreck in 90 minutes, but were eventually picked up by another dive boat that had come out from Grenada to search. He was guided to us by the GPS numbers transmitted by the Lifeline.

I would like to thank you and your team for developing the product

Yours faithfully,

Nautilus LifeLine to the rescue

By the way this thing has more than paid for itself.

One day in Palau, where the Philippine Sea meets the Pacific Ocean, we dove in 0.5 m swells, only to surface in 2-3 m swells after drifting for 70 minutes in an exceptionally strong surge. No boat in sight and we could not be seen. So, Nautilus LifeLine to the rescue. Worked like a hot damn. Well done and thanks.
