SDI Advanced Buoyancy Diver

There is no more important skill in diving than buoyancy control. It is expert control of buoyancy and position in the water that distinguishes the accomplished diver among divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. The diver with advanced buoyancy skills is more relaxed, uses less air, sees more, and is a much safer diver. This specialty is designed to increase the open water diver’s understanding of the factors that influence buoyancy, and to train the diver how to use the various means available to him as methods for controlling his buoyancy.
