"Aqua eyes" snorkel board

"Aqua eyes" snorkel board - 05/02/05 05:25 PM

Has anyone ever seen something that looks like a large swimming float or a small surfboard that you can lie on and look through a window into the ocean, like snorkelling but without having to put a mask and snorkel on?

We used these in Eleuthera and while I've done a search for "aqua eyes" (the name they gave them!) all I'm coming up with are links to contact lenses!!

I'd love to get one of these boards to use in AC if anyone could give me any info about where and what they might otherwise be called.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link, that was a good start.....! If you have any others, I'd love to browse around - just so I can check out some prices...but I don't know what you actually call them!

I just need to know what they're called, or a make, or something I can Google so I can see if I can get one. The link a dogMP gave me above was great, but it costs $120!! So I'm still hoping to find something cheaper, and a name for it!!!

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for.
My sis bought one of these for my nephew -- Splash Wave Surfer. She bought it at a beach shop, but I found this site:

Thanks Doberman - its along those lines but I don't think an adult could use the one on this link!! LOL! The one I used before was more like a sturdy styro board with the viewing bit in it - I wish I knew what the general name for these things are! Thx for your help though.

Kaye&Scott - The link you gave didn't work, but maybe that was for the best. Nuff said.

Try scubatoys.com I was there today and saw the items you are talking about. Not sure what they called them but saw they had adult and children's sizes. They were inflatable and had a clear see thru window.

rats!

( and I'm not an expert in adult sized inflatables - I specialize in the midgets)

Kaye&Scott - Thanks - I was able to access the site this AM at work. I think maybe my dial up connection was so slow at home last night that it timed out before I could get to the site.

And sorry for thinking you were playing games with me.... :rolleyes: !

Found something better!! Thanks HLansford!!! I emailed scubatoys and they sent me a link to something even better!! Now I have to see what the weight is and how it would pack up for travel...... but I'd better make sure the trip IS ON before I buy it!!

Thanks for sending me that link! laugh
