Surface Marker Buoy Diver

All divers diving in Open water should be proficient in the use of Surface marker Buoys (SMB’s)

A standard requirement in many diving locations, SMB use is designed as a device to improve diver safety, however improper use can be a real hazard.

The PADI SMB diver course is a dedicated course to develop knowledge and techniques for safe SMB use.

SMB’s/Delayed SMB’s are used in a variety of situations:

Alerting boat traffic to the presence of divers. Providing a visual reference for ascending divers. Facilitating efficient execution of safety stops. Marking location of ascending divers for pick up. Marking areas for mapping projects. Marking search areas for Search and Recovery operations

Course Goals:

To understand the value of having and using SMBs or DSMBs.To introduce the potential risks, risk management techniques and the need for proper training when using SMBs or DSMBs.To know the local protocols/requirements and demonstrate proper technique for using SMBs or DSMBs

If you love diving and would like to dive all year round then the PADI Drysuit Diver Speciality course is the course for you.

The PADI Drysuit Specialty Diver Course shows you how warm you can stay in even the coolest diving conditions and is almost essential for UK diving. A drysuit also has the advantage of keeping you warm and protected from the wind between dives during the summer months.
