DSMB - Delayed Surface Marker Buoy Specialty
Drift diving, deep diving, surfacing in an area of boating traffic, or navigation-gone-wrong ascents - all perfectly sound and solid reasons to make your imminent presence known by sending up a highly visible marker buoy to alert others of your ascent. This class is just the ticket to learning how to select a DSMB and Finger Spool, store them on your kit, deploy them in a safe manner, and utilize them for your ascent. You'll be amazed how often you decide to employ your DSMB on your dives once you've been properly trained!
