Activity Highlights:

We are the capital’s premier PADI dive school and the only London dive centre to be equipped with a purpose-built heated scuba pool. Whether it is taking your first breaths underwater, refreshing and expanding your diving knowledge or moving up the ranks to becoming a dive professional, our highly qualified instructors are able to guide and help you every step of the way.

The PADI Surface Marker Buoy Specialty course is a training program for divers that provides in-depth knowledge and practical techniques required for the safe and effective use of surface marker buoys (SMBs) and delayed surface marker buoys (DSMBs). These pieces of equipment play critical roles in underwater navigation, safety, and communication with surface support. SMBs in particular allow divers to mark boundaries for activities such as underwater mapping or search and recovery missions. Moreover, they function as a vital alert system for boat traffic, indicating the presence of divers below, thus enhancing the safety of the divers.

This comprehensive course combines theoretical understanding with practical experience. Over the course of two dives at the lake, you will learn the appropriate techniques and protocols for using both SMBs and DSMBs. Instruction covers not only the basics of buoy deployment but delves into the particulars of various launch methods, executed from both negative and neutrally buoyant positions. This hands-on experience is invaluable for divers, allowing them to understand and master the complexities of working with these tools in a real-world context.

The skills you acquire from this specialty course will prove essential in a range of diving scenarios, especially those involving strong currents or heavy boat traffic. The ability to use SMBs and DSMBs proficiently can significantly increase safety and efficiency in such conditions. Whether it’s managing drift dives, where currents can sweep divers far from their original location, or maintaining position and visibility in areas with boat traffic, the proficiency gained from this course will enhance your overall diving capability, making you a safer and more competent diver.
