A buoyancy control device (BCD) is an essential piece of equipment for scuba diving. They allow us to control our buoyancy in order to become neutrally buoyant in the water (not sinking and not floating up). This is an essential skill in scuba diving, not only from a safety perspective but also from an enjoyment point of view. The better you are at controlling your buoyancy, the less you will fin, resulting in you being more relaxed and consuming less air. It will also most likely improve you interactions underwater, as fish are easily scared by divers fining a lot. This article will look at the features that will help you to determine if a BCD is right for you.
