Gopro floaty stick saves the day for Red Sea dive trip
If you’re a Gopro owner and take it diving or perhaps snorkeling, you may be interested in this Gopro lost in the ocean story. This scuba diving story was sent to me by scuba diver Paula after a trip to the Red Sea in Egypt.
Scuba diving story about a Gopro lost in the ocean but with a happy ending when it's found. But it was the Gopro floaty stick that saved the day! "It had unhinged itself and floated to the surface with The floaty stick! 8 minutes it videoed itself being tumbled about in the waves before one of the crew on the boat saw it and retrieved it." So the moral of this scuba diving story is to only use a Gopro when scuba diving with a floaty stick!
A scuba diving story about the Gopro lost in the ocean...but was found!
This scuba diving story begins with "6 of us had a great time in El Gouna, Red Sea Diving holiday for 10 days!" Paula explains.
“Here is one of the videos I took with my new GoPro camera...”
Paula's lost Gopro story continues...
"I almost lost it on my first dive too! It had unhinged itself and floated to the surface with The floaty stick!"
"8 minutes it videoed itself being tumbled about in the waves before one of the crew on the boat saw it and retrieved it!"
"I was one happy Diver when I got back on board! I could have kissed him ?. It certainly deserved a tip!"
"After that first dive I made sure I had it securely tied to my bcd more than once!"

So in the end, the moral of this lost Gopro scuba story is to either fix it to your scuba diving equipment or get a Gopro floaty stick. I prefer to affix any equipment, be it my dive torch or in this case a Gopro, to my equipment.
Do you have a scuba diving story?
If you also have a scuba diving story to send, I'd love to hear from you. I'm very grateful to Paula for sending in this story. Just like Leslie did with his scuba diving story about the recovery of the Junkers Jumo engine in Malta.
