the beginning of SCUBA diving, divers have wanted to talk to each other
underwater. So far, the only feasible systems for audio communication
have been available only to commercial divers. Unfortunately, these
systems were also complicated, cumbersome, and expensive. However, OCEAN
REEF has designed a communication system which is easy to use,
lightweight, and within a recreational diver’s budget.

OCEAN REEF underwater communication system adds a whole new dimension to
dive safety and enjoyment by connecting divers with each other and with
partners on the surface.

  • Simple PTT (Push To Talk) system - press the microphone button to talk and release to receive
  • Standard frequency - making it possible to talk directly with all other Ocean Reef communication systems
  • Powered by a 9 volt battery - not included
  • Up to 30 hours in the receiving mode
  • Range of up to 600 feet
underwater communication allows a great evolution of the diving
activity and an outstanding improvement of the underwater instruction
and education. Besides, the underwater communication is also making the
diving activity safer and more enjoyable.

The new GSM G.divers transceiver (high performance communication
system) expands the diver’s ability to communicate with others verbally.
The ultrasonic transceiver boasts the autonomy of approximately 30
hours in receiving mode, a range of operation of 200-250 meters (calm
sea water), lightweight and sleek design.

It is a powerful, single channel and inexpensive PTT (push to talk)
underwater wireless communication unit. The unit automatically
activates upon contact with the water and it uses a 9V alkaline battery
with a low battery alarm which beeps every 30 seconds when the battery
is low.

The GSM G.divers communication unit is the perfect addition to any
training class or guided tour and operates on the same frequency as all
other OCEAN REEF units and most popular wireless communication units on
the market.

G.divers uses a D-Mic, a special microphone with the housing sealed by
hydrophobic membrane which is permeable to air, but prevents water from
passing through the electronics.

The membrane’s reduced thickness limits any reduction of the vocal
signal. The permeability of the membrane keeps the internal pressure
equalized with the external pressure, enabling the microphone to be used
at practically any depth.

GSM G.divers comes with the NACS (Neptune Adjustable Communication
Support) (code 33054). The patented NACS is an adjustable support arm
for the GSM G.divers and other OCEAN REEF underwater communication
units. It can be installed on the left side of the mask and prevents the
communication unit from hanging on the mask strap. By relieving the
weight of the communication unit, the NACS also allows the mask strap to
slide easily through the buckle; thus, the strap can stay loose while
the mask is donned and the communicator stays out of the way. The NACS
can be adjusted for tilt and distance between the communication unit and
the visor.

I see you are in San Diego. Is there anywhere local we can go to try one of these out before plunking down the money? Perhaps a demo day somewhere in the San Diego or LA area?
