Here are a few ideas for the ocean-enthusiast in your life:

This is an Amazon Best Seller. It’s the first GoPro with a touch-screen display. Because it’s waterproof up to 131 feet (40m), it makes a great gift for the more serious divers and photographers, as well as those looking to get into underwater photography.

Waterproof Housing by Watershot
If you’re not looking to buy a separate camera, consider waterproof housing for your phone! This awesome case lets you take your phone snorkeling or diving and is waterproof up to 195 feet (60m). There’s also a free app that helps you maximize camera functions. This one fits the iPhone 6, but there are plenty of other options.

Weego Jump Starters
If you operate anything run by battery, you should have one of these in your bag or in a locker on the boat. It’ll jump-start anything up to a moderately sized diesel engine, all the way down to your bluetooth headset.

Sea Doo Aqua Ranger Sea Scooter
This entry-level scooter takes snorkeling and shallow diving to new levels. It runs at a speed of 2.5 miles per hour, helping you cover a lot more ground (water?). It runs for up to an hour and a half and can be used at depths of up to 30 feet (10m).
