The World’s Best Portable Buoy System™

Traditional foam buoys are sturdy and durable, but also cumbersome and not easily stowed for transport. Vinyl inflatable buoys offer convenient portability but are also easily damaged, and have poor visibility due to their low flag elevation.


The Pocket Buoy™ merges the benefits of rigid construction and collapsible portability into a new patented design. The secret lies with the hinged internal frame, which provides a continuous torsion arm between the flag assembly and lower counterweight. This allows the flag elevation to be more than twice as high as other inflatable buoys, providing substantially improved visibility.


Other patented features include a collapsible pole structure with elastic shock cord, lower counterweight locking mechanism, and detachable lead counterweight. Positive buoyancy is achieved with a disposable inflation bladder made from an ordinary party balloon! The fabric exterior shell protects the bladder from bursting, and provides threaded connectors for the flag and counterweight poles.


Assembly is quick and easy, and the Pocket Buoy™ is conveniently stowed in any dive gear bag.
