The Top Must-Have GoPro Accessories
We love our GoPro cameras! We enjoy the compact size, quality of the photos, and the ability to use them in so many different ways. But after buying our first GoPro a few years ago we realized that it wouldn’t be complete without some awesome GoPro accessories.
When we first started looking at different GoPro accessories we were overwhelmed by the options but after time we realized which ones were necessary and which ones were useful to have for specific shots. Fortunately for us, most of the GoPro accessories we own can also be used with any model of GoPro that’s currently on the market.
But before we get started, we realize that this is a laundry list of GoPro accessories that can get really expensive fast! We by no means bought these items all at once but rather, did so overtime!
Micro SD Memory Card
A memory card is a given, right? However, picking the right amount of memory is the key when selecting a Micro SD card. We typically say the more memory the better and wouldn’t go any less than 64GB.
Cost: $20 for 64GB or $40 for 128GB
It was a crying shame when we ran out of space on our micro SD while filming at Great Sand Dunes National Park. Good thing we had a backup!

Another must-have GoPro accessory is extra batteries. Nothing is worse than running out of battery life when filming or taking photographs. We have 3-4 batteries for each camera on us at all times because when used often they drain quickly!
Long days and longer trips call for more batteries so you can keep shooting!
Dual Battery Charger
In addition to the extra batteries, another useful GoPro accessory is a dual battery charger. With this handy device, you can charge your GoPro batteries quickly while on-the-go. I love this accessory because it has a micro-USB port that allows you to use a variety of power sources too! Bonus? It comes with one extra battery.

While it is quite useful in capturing the perfect selfie, a GoPole is fantastic for a variety of activities. Waterproof and buoyant, they are perfect for water activities like snorkeling and ease any worry of your camera sinking to Davy Jones locker. 😉
Gooseneck + Flex Clamp
This is by far one of our most used GoPro accessories. We use the Gooseneck as a handheld pole, clip it on our suction cup for video footage outside of our vehicles, and so much more. The Flex Clamp is awesome for mounting purposes too!

Head Strap + QuickClip
We don’t use this GoPro accessory as often as we should but it’s great for video footage and photos from an eye-level perspective. The head strap and quickclip is perfect for activities that require your hands being free (e.g. climbing, kayaking, etc.)

Another beloved GoPro accessory of ours is the suction cup. We use this one to attach our GoPro to our vehicles, boat, jetski, and more. It can travel safely up to 150+ MPH and doesn’t damage the surface that you attach it to.
Shot with GoPro Suction Cup
This must-have GoPro accessory allows you to fully gain control of all camera functions as well as acting as a long-range remote control for distances up to 600 ft in optimal conditions. Another nice quality? You can control multiple cameras at once! Wear it on your wrist or mount it on a Go Pole.
The GoPro floaty is great for the beach, pool, kayaking, snorkeling, wakeboarding, or other deep-water activities when you want to utilize multiple attachments.
Whenever we’re near a body of water we always use the floaty backdoor.
Red Diving Filter
A red diving filter makes your underwater images go from all blue to show true colors underwater similar to what you can see visually. This accessory is perfect for those who plan to use their GoPro underwater often while snorkeling or diving.
Underwater Dome Port
We just recently received this accessory and were excited to try it out. Have you ever seen one of those underwater shots that are half in the water half out of the water? That’s what this nifty GoPro accessory does! The only thing is, it can take some extra time to learn how to master it.
GoPro Camera Case
We really like our GoPro camera case because it has room for two GoPro cameras, batteries, memory cards, and many accessories. It also slips easily into my backpack.
What are some GoPro accessories you can’t live without?
