Default Water-proof pouch?

I have seen advice to buy a waterproof pouch for money etc. when swimming or snorkeling. Where can I buy these online?

rei.com is an outdoor store that carries the pouches. I've heard of people finding them at Wal-mart or Target, but make sure they are "waterproof" not just "water resistant."

I ordered mine from an online company called Magellan's. Someone on this board recommended them. I haven't gone on my cruise yet to try the items, but they all look like good quality. I ordered a waterproof container that can fit over your neck or wrist. It is just big enough to hold passport, a little money, credit card, etc.

They had several items. Wal-Mart is probably cheaper.....

I tried Walmart, but all they had was a clear envelope for a fishing license. Not waterproof. :P I guess I will make a trip to the dive shop or order it online. Thanks for the suggestions!

We bought ours at Walmart. No they weren't waterproof but who cares...lol Everyone takes wet money. They will not turn you away. We put our money, sail and sign card and I.D. in them. They had a zipper closure and you could hang them around your neck. Now we did NOT find them in sporting goods. We found ours in the area around the jewelry counter by the wallets etc. They were .97 cents a piece.
Happy sailing.

Just bought a swim suit for my husband. It had a waterproof pouch attached with a little cord (removable). I told him to save it for our cruise in April. It looks like it will hold a card and some money. Iwill be looking for a few more though.
