Improving your buoyancy control skills is one of the first things we recommend for new divers. Every diver who wants to improve their diving skills and at the same time wants to perform active environmental protection should take the SSI PERFECT BUOYANCY course.

Nearly every diver who wants to dive on great spots on holiday is requested to do a Check-Dive and buoyancy control is one of the essential skills that has to be performed. Poor control is likely to lead to damage to the reef or area where you are diving so it is done to make sure you can dive under good control of your fins and position in the water.

The destruction and harm caused by divers with weak buoyancy skills is having an impact on reefs worldwide. Additionally, perfect buoyancy control is a prerequisite for nearly all Specialty Courses.

Buoyancy skills are important for UK diving where visibility is at a premium and poor control can lead to silt being stirred up unnecessarily, destroying the quality of your dive.
