Waterproof box/bag for snorkel?

I've seen a few of you meniton that you use a waterproof bag or box when sightseeing so that you can put your hotel key, wallet, keys etc. in it while swimming or snorkeling then you don't have to worry about your valuables being left on the beach.

Can you recommend some to me? I'm doing a search I keep finding some that say Class 3 (not suitable for underwater submersion) so that doesn't sound like it would work.

I'd like to find one (at a decent price) for our upcoming trip.

Thank you so much for your help!

I used he aquapac keymaster sucessfullly but its pretty small. I was able to fit cash, my rather slim LG cell phone, and the car key without the huge alamo key tag. That's it. Credit cards and hotel key cards are waterproof so they went in a secure pocket in my board shorts. The aquapac waterproofing system works for snorkeling (also used their small camera bag) so just find the size that suits your needs.

There is a product called "Alocsac" that was developed by the military specifically to keep dust out of electronics in Iraq but is also used by the Navy. It came out commercially a few years back. I looks like a thick ziplock bag but I have used it down as deep as 110 feet and it was watertight!

Available on Maui or @ Amazon.com www.amazon.com/dp/B0016LUT5I/…

We, too, use Aquapac.

@aj, it never ceases to amaze me how those big, rental company key tags keep coming off. <G>

This is my wallet when we go to the islands. I can get license, credit card, insurance cards, room key card, and some folding money in it no problem.


This is what I keep my phone and car key in. Both drop inside my wetsuit and hardly know their there.
