If you’re serious about spearfishing and/or freediving, you’ll need to invest in a good, reliable freediving torch to help shed light on your underwater world.
The problem (that an astounding number of freedivers are unaware of) is the vast majority of diving torches are too big and clunky for freedivers.
They slow you down, add too much resistance and kill your total bottom time.
You need to invest in a freediving torch that is built for freediving and will actually HELP you hit top speeds in the water. 😉
The best freediving torch is still the Orca Torch D520 Diving Flashlight. The reason freedivers love it so much is because it’s ultra light weight and has a very smooth hydrodynamic design that eliminates drag & water resistance. Despite it’s small design, the Orca Torch still packs a VERY bright light, making it perfect for hunting cray, other prey or lighting up dark caves.

First and foremost reason why the Orca Torch is still the best on the market…the sheer strength vs size ratio of it.
Most freediving torches on the market have about ~250 lumens of light.
The Orca Torch has a whopping 1000 lumens of light! That’s the strength many industrial, heavy-duty underwater lights start at. But they aren’t as compact and sleek as the Orca Torch.
To illustrate my point, take a look at the below video of the Orca Torch D520 in action in the Orchid Island’s Blue Hole.

That level of strength from a freediving / spearfishing torch…at this low price point is almost unheard of (which is probably why the Orca Torch has so many killer 5 star reviews on amazon).
Most freediving torches on the market will set you back $125 – $225.
But the Orca Torch?
You’ll be pleasantly surprised that it comes in way below this. Great quality at an affordable price….
