PADI Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) Deployment

 A DSMB is a vital piece of safety equipment for any diver. It allows you to signal your location to people on the surface, give yourself a reference point for an ascent when you don't have a fixed line or even summon help in an emergency!

 Short on time? All PADI scuba courses can be upgraded to a one-on-one session organised on your terms - get in touch to arrange your exclusive session HERE.
What Will You Learn?
  • How to safely and effectively deploy a DSMB from neutral buoyancy in mid water
  • The advantages and drawbacks of different kinds of buoys, reels and spools
  • Assessing conditions for deployment of DSMBs based on potential hazards
  • Preparing and caring for your equipment to ensure smooth, efficient deployment.
How does it work?
First you'll have some theory work to complete at home, before coming in to our Hamilton store one evening to discuss what you've learned with your instructor and complete a review to show your knowledge.

Then we head to Open Water! You'll complete 2 dives over 1 day putting all your new knowledge into action.

In addition to our scheduled courses we also run PADI Speciality Dive Courses on request - get in touch today!
