Life Support Rafts

The Diver Life Raft and Surf Shuttle are essential safety devices for any dive where currents or distance could create a life-threatening separation from the dive boat.

Key Features of Halcyon Life Support Devices

  • Inflatable at any depth, each device can function as redundant buoyancy
  • Inflate easily with LP pressure hose using the No-Lock® connector fitting
  • Oral inflation offers redundant option should breathing gas supply be depleted

Diver's Life Raft

Imagine being separated from your dive boat and spending several days drifting alone in the ocean. Now imagine floating safely in a Halcyon Life Raft while greatly increasing your visibility for search and rescue personnel; you can use this same raft to salvage rainwater and as a shelter during the hottest hours of the day. Modeled after the Air Force and Navy Single-Man Life Boat, the Halcyon Life Raft can be inflated orally or with your LP hose and provides unprecedented safety at sea.

Halcyon Surf Shuttle

The Halcyon surf shuttle provides an essential margin of safety for divers who become lost at sea. While not as much protection as our diver’s life raft, the surf shuttle is a lifesaver for divers facing a long wait at the surface or even a long swim to shore.
