That's my attitude. A friend of mine went diving with me in poor visibility last month. He came up behind me at one point and touched the antenna. He said he felt it, and advised that I should probably bring up the rear especially where low viz makes collisions more likely as you try to keep your buddy in sight. That antenna trails behind you.

Some people worry that these things attact sharks--they don't. The signal is only detectable for 2 or 3 meters. The other thing I hear is that it seems that it would get caught in kelp or rocks. But it doesn't. I don't even know I am wearing it unless I touch it, and then I feel the pulse.

The only downside is if you want to see leopard sharks, some kinds of rays or other harmless species, it might scare them off. I has no effect on any other marine life. I happen to think leopard sharks are beautiful, and I hope to see one.
