Delayed Surface Marker Buoy



Surface Marker Buoys or SMB’s allow scuba divers to mark boundaries for mapping or search and recovery exercises, alert boat traffic to the divers location and can provide a line as a visual reference for ascending divers.  During two open water dives, you will learn the proper techniques and protocols for using surface marker buoys and Delayed Surface Marker Buoys – DSMB’s – in our local area.



2019 Course Dates:  

Thursday evenings at Lake Chaparral

Saturday’s in Waterton when there is also an Advanced course running






IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!  Are you medically able to dive?

The purpose of the PADI Medical Statement is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training.

Please answer the questions contained in the PADI Medical Statement on your past or present medical history with a ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ – ‘Y’ and ‘N’ are NOT acceptable answers.  If you are not sure, answer ‘YES’.

If any of these items apply to you, you MUST have the Medical Statement signed by a physician prior to participating in scuba diving.
