@deftriver711, yes, the Floaty includes Protective Housing Backdoor for HERO8 Black, the Frame Backdoor, and Protective Housing Backdoor for HERO7 and other compatible cameras. You can attach the Floaty to the backdoor of the camera's protective housing.

Now can I use both the protective housing and the floaty while using the suction cup mount?

You should be able to, @deftriver711. Please note though that the Suction Cup mount is not recommended for surfing, snowboarding, or other high-impact sports. It is recommended for non-impact activities only. More importantly. the Floaty will not support the weight of the Suction Cup mount.

For Kayaking, check out the mounting tips in his video, @deftriver711 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kkm7CsgF8EY

 

The camera is an old model but the mounts described and shown will still work with the HERO8 Black camera.
