Raft Up with My Cruise Cam


On Boxing Day here in Perth, Western Australia we all jumped on my friend Tim’s boat, and cruised over to one of the most beautiful islands that Australia knows – Rottnest! I wasn’t sure what to expect from my new point-and-shoot camera but I was definitely stoked with the results!

Well it all started when I stumbled upon a Vivitar Underwater Cruise Cam on eBay for 15 bucks. My local processing shop had one for sale for $75 and I had looked at it countless of times but really had my heart set on a KRAB for my LC-A+. I figured for 15 clams it would be a bit of fun and if I liked what it produced then I would shell out for the infamous KRAB.

I was not sure what to expect from this basic point-and-shoot plastic camera but I was stoked with the results especially the colours from the under water group shots!

I now have the KRAB and there will soon be a LC-A+/KRAB vs Vivitar Underwater Cruise Cam shoot off!
