PADI Surface Marker Buoy Course


Surface marker buoys are a vital part of every divers equipment. They are used to safely end dives, conduct safety stops and provide a visual marker during dives when required. They are easy to use with the right techniques, and a definite must for all divers. The majority of dive boats will especially encourage the use of SMB's.

During the course, we will teach you the following:
- The different types of SMB's 

- How to use the SMB
- How to control your buoyancy when deploying an SMB
- Techniques for ending the dive with an SMB
- Using an SMB in various diving situations

The course is condcted over 2 dives. We will first take you within our confined training area so that you can get used to using using the SMB. We will then head in to the deeper parts of the quarry to practise the techniques learnt in deeper water. 
The course cost is £195 and includes all course materials, kit hire, entry fees to the dive site and tuition.
