Buoyancy and Trim

Want to be able to relax underwater and move about gracefully, with the added benefit of using less gas on a dive?

Then attending a BSAC Buoyancy and Trim Workshop is for you. The workshop will encourage you to think about your weighting and trim in a logical way.

Adopting a disciplined approach to buoyancy (how much weight) and trim (correct balance and attitude in the water) is essential for all divers and will allow you to perform many diving skills effortlessly. Taking control of your buoyancy is taking a big step towards safe and comfortable diving.
