Course Outline

Objective: Deploy a surface marker buoy (SMB) while on the surface.

Value: An SMB is a signalling device. It lets those on the surface know your underwater location. It is frequently used to increase diver safety.

How It’s Done:

  • Your instructor will demonstrate the deployment of an SMB while on the surface.
  • If you are diving in an area that requires deployment of the SMB while you are underwater, your instructor will teach you how to do it.
