  1. I think I am just the one you described. I know nothing about boat but my husband is a fan of boat. So, I want to give  him a present. I would like to choose between a underwater camera and a telescope. I think the last one is better and safer, right?

    Does the camera has something to measure the distance? Because you said it is waterproof for 100 feet, if it can have something to calculate the distance or alert when you’re about to go over, it would be nice. Or do you have something else to help with that? So that the diver knows the distance.


    • Hi there,

      Sorry, I didn’t really understand your question. What do mean by safer, can you elaborate, please?

      No, the camera doesn’t have this feature, but it is completely waterproof, and you can take pictures and make videos underwater. To calculate the distance, you have to use Sonic distance sensors. This truly helps!

      Let me know if you need more info. I’ll be glad to assist.

      Thank you for the comment and wish a lovely day!

  2. Dear Daniella,

    One of my close friends is a Marine Engineer he will sail for 6 months every year. I have been looking for a birthday gift and wanted that to be a useful one while he is sailing. While doing some research online came across your helpful and informative article. I can tell you I have taken some great insights from this article.

    YETI Rambler Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Colster and Gosky 12×55 High Definition Monocular Telescope sounds interesting to me.

    The price is also coming under my budget. The information you shared about the product is super helpful in making my decision.

    Much Success!
