Buoyancy is one of the core skills you learn when scuba diving, and it remains one of the hardest to master. Diving Sports Canada offers the Buoyancy Control Specialty Course to help fine-tune and master buoyancy control for new and even more experienced divers! Certification offered through PADI and SDI.

Who is this course for:

Any certified diver who can demonstrate all Open Water Diver skills efficiently and has sound buoyancy techniques who wants to learn to fine-tune and master their buoyancy control under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

Introducing a diver to the benefits of controlling their buoyancy usually has a great positive effect, an effect that will enhance the diver’s sense of enjoyment and feeling of accomplishment. 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 means available to them as methods for controlling their buoyancy. The added benefits to the marine and freshwater environments, cannot be overstated; as well as a diver that has better control of themselves in conjunction with their environment.

What You Will Learn:

Over the course you will learn why we care so much about buoyancy, what kinds of changes affect buoyancy, different techniques of controlling breathing, and proper weighting. We will also be focusing heavily on body position in the water, controlled movements and streamlining.


Course Description:

  • We will be spending a full day in the ocean to complete 2 dives (minimum) required for the course.
  • You will receive full briefings and debriefings about skills and performance throughout the day to encourage development
  • After 2 dives, if divers have successfully met the course requirements, you will receive your certification

  • Course Prerequisites:

  • Open Water Diver required
  • Recent cold water or drysuit experience required (in-pool assessment by instructor may be required)

  • Commitment to Safety Enjoyment

    At Diving Sports we believe in making sure all our students receive the highest quality instruction and customer service. We are in the business of training, mentoring, and supporting students to become safe, skillful and confident divers. We begin by scheduling our courses with the number of classes it typically takes most students to master the knowledge and skills, then adapt and tailor our schedule to fit our individual student’s needs. Our instructors are open and honest about your progress during each part of the course. Students may need to schedule additional pool or ocean training dives prior to certification. This ensures our students complete their courses with all the skills and knowledge they need to be safe and enjoy their future dives and courses. When you take a course with Diving Sports, you are welcomed into a passionate and inclusive community of divers eager to support your diving journey well beyond the duration of your class.
