Cannot live stream underwater

Is it expected that I can not live stream underwater? As a swim coach, I use my GoPro Hero 7 White underwater to film the swimmers technique. I’m hoping to be able to see it on my iPad while I am filming but is soon as it goes underwater the connection drops every time.

Re: Cannot live stream underwater

That's not suprisng water really blocks radio signals.  The frequency has to be extra low for it to pentrate the water.

That's how they used to or maybe still communicate with submarines.
