Markers

The following markers are used for cave diving. In any circumstances and for any reasons, these markers should ever not displaced. The arrow always points toward the exit. The circular marker is also called cookie and it is leaved by divers to mark the distance done, it is used as a marker in regard to air consumption. It is normally recuperated upon return by the diver who left it. It should not be displaced if it does not belong to you. In both cases, the life of divers depend on it. In all cases, the rope supporting the markers should not be cut nor moved.
