The Advanced Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

Why be certified?

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater: they glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings.

What will I learn?

  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy.
  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
  • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water.
  • Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.

How long will it take?

This course takes 1 day to complete.


You just need to be a certified Open Water Diver.

Medical Requirements:

You will be asked to complete the Medical Questionnaire when enrolling in any scuba diving course with Dolphin Scuba. This questionnaire is designed to identify any health issues that could cause complications while diving. If you answer ‘no’ to all the questions you won’t need to do any more. If you have any answers ‘yes’ you will need to see a doctor for a Recreational Diving Medical before starting your course.
