A BUOY OR FLOAT IS ESSENTIAL FOR YOUR SAFETY DURING YOUR SPEARFISHING SESSIONS AND MUST BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUR KIT. 

A buoy or a float for spearfishing? 

These two spearfishing accessories have many similarities but they each have their own features that will help you make your choice.~~Let's take a look at these different accessories in detail... 

Spearfishing buoy

Buoy 

This accessory is a requirement in most countries, including France, and is primarily used to indicate your position. It flies the required dive flag: Alpha flag or red and white flag. Spearfishing buoys come in different shapes and sizes and some models can be used to attach other accessories such as a net, a waterproof box or a second speargun! 

Float

Like buoys, spearfishing floats ensure visibility and safety. A flag must also be flown. However, this accessory allows you to rest if necessary, an additional safety benefit, and lets you carry your spearfishing equipment in the water. If you opt for a float, buoyancy will be a key factor to consider as it will determine its ability to carry loads.~
