"A Strong Waterproof VHF "I spend a large amount of time playing on jet skis in heavy surf but still require a radio to launch, beach and emergency. I enjoy rough heavy seas and normally break about five or six radios a year. I was mailed a brochure of the Lifeline from Killerdeals in South Africa, I had a look at the radio and believe that its the only radio viable for my use, and that has proved correct.
"LifeLine is a must! "LifeLine is an extraordinary diving tool, best insurance to have when you surface. Diving can be done safely any time, anywhere. My family and I have peace of mind knowing it is with me. LifeLine is a must! I will NEVER again dive without it.
"Master Mariner, Spearfishing Guide"As an Unlimited Tonnage Captain and 12 time Spearfishing World Record Holder all done on a single breath of air, I have spent my life on the water and inevitably the Ocean will challenge you and put you in a situation out of your control. Whether you are a Diver or a Ship Captain it is your #1 priority to come home safely and LifeLine makes sure of that. An excellent safety device and an essential on all my trips.

"Like LifeLine"Excellent bit of Kit that comes on every dive. Even shore dives, as it offers peace of mind knowing if anything goes wrong, I can contact the coast guard or local harbour and request assistance rather then getting back to the beach and get to a phone... Used a couple of times to talk to the dive boat, most recently on a shallow dive, I decided one dsmb would be enough and it got tangled so had to let it go. On surfacing the boat was exactly where i expected it to be right next to the dsmb, quick call and all was fine. Would recommend every diver gets one!!
"R&D Engineer"The Lifeline is a must have for dinghy sailors. The long standby battery life & waterproof design means it’s permanently part of my life jacket. It saved my bacon last weekend as I stood alone on an upturned broken boat and watched the sun set.
"Simply great"I always keep LifeLine attached to my BCD, especially when I'm diving into ocean (Caribbean) or in areas of the Mediterranean where there are strong surface currents that can push you out of sight of their surface marker buoy. It 's a safety device that allows you to make your dive safely knowing that at any moment I can be identified on the surface.
"Hot Coco Please"On a recent drift dive in Alaska I surfaced on the other side of the rocks and was out of sight of the pick-up skiff. I knew it would only be a short time before the skiff came around the corner but I thought it would be a great time to try out my LifeLine. I pulled my LifeLine out and called the "mother ship" and asked them if they could have me a cup of coco when I got back. Mission accomplished! That Alaska water is cold!
"Peace-of-Mind"I've done over 3000 dives and have had a few occasions of getting caught in a current or the fog rolling in, not being able to see the boat. This causes a fair amount of anxiety, especially since I've read stories about divers getting lost at sea. As soon as I heard about the Nautilus Lifeline 3 years ago with the VHF marine radio and it's ability to broadcast my GPS location, it was a no brainer for me, I had to have it. I dive all over the world and knowing that with my Nautilus Lifeline I can talk on Channel 16 or transmit my GPS location, gives me great peace of mind. I'm a technical diver doing deep dives to over 100 meters (330'), so the Lifeline's depth rating of 425' is another big plus. Although unlikely, the idea of being lost at sea does not appeal to me, I'd rather invest in my peace of mind.
"Save your own life with the Nautilus Lifeline!!!!"One of my Worst FEARS is to surface and find the Dive boat gone, or Diving here in the North East get blown off a wreck. Not too great of a feeling, so I tried to carry every safety device I could. When I came across the Nautilus Lifeline, I said this is what I've been looking for, now I can Dive with peace of mind, knowing I can SAVE MYSELF. $299 is a small price to pay, when you're LOST on the Open Sea's. This product is well worth the investment, LIVE TO DIVE ANOTHER DAY!!!
"A good radio with convenient dive tracking history "I purchased the Nautilus Lifeline as a radio to use in case of emergency and separation from the dive boat. I was able to test it out on a recent trip to the Channel Islands.
"LifeLine for Sea Kayakers"I always keep a Nautilus Lifeline clipped to my lifejacket when kayaking at sea. The three buttons on this small simple waterproof unit allow me to call a local working channel, the Coast Guard emergency channel, or transmit a continuous DSC mayday call complete with my GPS location and boat information. The only maintenance required is to charge it by USB every three months and run its self-test procedure. It could save my life on day.
"Lifeline Alternative Use"I've been teaching scuba for 33 years and I carry a Lifeline on dives when I'm far offshore. Professionally, I've been operating rescue and fire boats for the past 28 years. I started carrying my Lifeline in the pocket of my floatcoat. Last year during a very bad winter storm (breaking 10-12' seas), I was responding to an emergency call when my patrol vessel started sinking. I put out the distress call on my vessel's VHF radio. My other patrol vessel was still 30 minutes away and the Coast Guard helicopter was 45 minutes out. As we prepared to go into the water, I double checked to make sure the Lifeline was secure, zipped inside my pocket. I made sure it was on Channel 16 because that's the frequency we were all working on. Fortunately my pumps were able to keep up with the flooding until additional pumps were transferred to my boat. We were far from shore and it would have been very difficult to find us had we gone down. Although I didn't have to use it, I was very thankful I had my Lifeline. Now I have 2 Lifelines: 1 for diving and 1 that always remains in the pocket of my floatcoat.
"Small price to pay if I ever need to use it"I hope I never need to use it. Quality built product. I've had one for about a year and purchased this one for my partner/dive buddy. Can be used to communicate diver to diver on the surface, hail the dive boat (or any boat in the area) or send out an emergency distress signal with GPS coordinates.
"I *LOVE* my Nautilus Lifeline!"I dive... a lot. I started diving in 1972, and since then have done over 4,500 dives, in all types of water conditions, and literally all over the world. In this time, one of the problems I have been concerned about most is separation from my dive platform (boat), not because I cannot navigate under water, but because other issues arise over which I have had no control.
"Diver breathes easier"I've had my lifeline for 2 years now and it gives great peace of mind knowing its there if needed. While I have not had the opportunity to use the safety features on a dive site, the instructions for use are easy to remember, and if you're like me, you can't be too prepared for any eventuality at a dive site( see also "Open Water" ) . After almost a year, the software on my original Nautilus went bad --- sent in to the company , it was replaced in 2 weeks with a new unit. Good to know that if you have a problem they will stand behind their product. I am totally satisfied with the Nautilus Lifeline and as a dive instructor recommend it to make you breathe easier wherever your diving takes you.
