Introducing a diver to the benefits of controlling their buoyancy has a great positive effect, an effect that will enhance the diver’s sense of enjoyment and feeling of accomplishment. This speciality is designed to increase the open water diver’s understanding of the factors that influence their buoyancy and to train the diver in using those means available to him or her as methods for controlling their buoyancy. The added benefits to the marine and fresh water environments cannot be overstated as well as we have divers that have better control of themselves in conjunction with their environment.

Hoodsport ‘N Dive works with the individual student in assessing their current abilities, then tailors the class and instruction to best suit their needs. Each diver leaves the class with a knowledge of the physics of buoyancy, but more importantly they now have the experience and knowledge to continue improving their diving, better controlling their buoyancy in all diving situations.
