Through the entire movie, Rob had the whistle around his neck, but he lost everything in the raft except his toothbrush. However, there are various pieces that continue to float around him, and it's not until after he has ransacked the sub that the whistle actually makes its first appearance, making it more likely he got the whistle from the sub.

Well, to summarize: A great family film for all ages and a great era
When I was a kid,my family went to Old Orchard beach in Maine. My mothers friend worked at the local movie house. This movie was the one playing while we were there. I must have seen it 10 times! I was about 6 or 7 as at the time as I think this was a second run type of theater. I loved this movie. But its funny, I have not seen this in years. It's on cable from time to time so I'm sure I'll run into it someday. This is one of the many films that Disney produced in the 50's,60's and 70's. There are so many to name,but here's a few: Son of Flubber, The absent minded professor, The Shaggy dog, The computer who wore Tennis shoes,etc... Just a great era for family movies. Many great memories.
