When starting out scuba diving, choosing the right of BCD (short for Buoyancy Control Device) can be tricky! In this video, Chris from ADRENO Melbourne takes the hassle out of the choice and offers three entry-level BCD's perfect for any beginner scuba diver.
The BCD allows divers to control their buoyancy by inflating or deflating a bladder to achieve positive, neutral or negative buoyancy. The buoyancy devices are comfortable and easy to wear, offering a practical solution when diving. BCD's are fully adjustable and can be bought in different designs and size to fit.
Here are Chris's top three entry-level BCD recommendations:
