The need to be properly weighted is – and will always be – one of the top considerations for an enjoyable dive.

While you may perfect your diving skills, explore new dive sites and reach higher certification levels, you’ll always need to check that you’re properly weighted before every dive.

In the video clip below, Safe Diving covers some of the factors that make calculating your buoyancy difficult.

Different dive conditions, equipment and – heck – even losing or putting on a few extra pounds will directly impact how much weight you’re going to need to go down and dive comfortably.

And if you want to obtain that sweet and perfect buoyancy, being properly weighted is paramount. The last thing you want to do is to spoil a dive because you have either a) too much weight or b) too little.

But how do you calculate your dive weight?

Experts love to complicate this, but ScubaOtter has made it really simple. Give their diving weight calculator a try and see for yourself. Just click here to use their diving weight calculator (available in both metric and imperial units) to find out how much weight you’re going to need.
