They feature a plastic strap to attach to your wrist or your BCD and are available in English and Japanese. One features the common species of fish, and the other common marine life (corals and other animals) found on the Great Barrier Reef and throughout much of the Indo-Pacific (e.g. Thailand, Malaysia, Fiji, PNG, etc). They can be purchased singly for $7 per slate or $12 the pair, or wholesale (please contact us for pricing).
