Top 10 Best BCDs

Controlling buoyancy is one of the most important aspects of scuba diving. Your buoyancy control device (BCD) is the main piece of dive equipment that will keep you in control during your dive. That's why it's important to choose the best scuba BCD to suit our personal needs.

Buoyancy control allows us to safely ascend and descend, as well as stay in a streamlined position during our dive, without crashing suddenly to the bottom. BCDs are quite an investment. They come in various shapes and sizes with many different features.

Unsure as to what type of BCD you need? Take a look at our guide to Buying a Scuba Diving BCD.

How do you know which one is right for you? Here at The Scuba Doctor, we've done the hard work for you when it comes to deciding what BCD suits you best. Our selection of the Top 10 Best BCDs available will enable you to move easily underwater with neutral buoyancy and great trim.
