Best Waterproof Cell Phone Cases

From scuba-diving to white water rafting, keep your smart device safe on adventurous trips.

Though nowadays, most new smartphones come IP-rated waterproof or water-resistant right out of the box, when planning a high-sailing or deep diving vacation, you may want to consider some added protection for your smartphone or device.

Though some waterproof cases simply keep your phone safe and dry, others offer floating protection for money, keys, and other valuables, or allow you to take that perfect underwater snapshot. By spending a few bucks on a waterproof case, you can save yourself a lot of money in the long run by not having to replace a pricey smartphone.
