WEIGHTS and BELTS


Carrying the right amount of weight to prevent yourself from being too buoyant is very important whilst diving. Getting the right weight is key to any successful dive as you need to counter act the buoyancy of your drysuit or wetsuit with the buoyancy of the rest of your kit to allow you to sink enough to part take in the dive. However, too much weight will prevent you from being able to rise again so a happy medium is essential.

These dive weights and weight belts can help you hone your buoyancy control so you can get your neutral buoyancy spot on. We have solid lead, soft lead, ankle weights, and weights that integrate directly to your BCD. We have versatile weight vests that are great for freediving and spearfishing. Quickly releasing your weights can even turn them into a safety device in an emergency.

For a helpful guide to choosing the best diving weight system, please see The Scuba Doctor's Dive Weights Buying Guide. For help on how to figure out how much lead you need, please see our Perfect Scuba Diving Weighting guide.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
