A surface marker buoy DSMB), decompression buoy or deco buoy is similar to a surface marker buoy but is deployed whilst the diver is submerged and generally only towards the end of the dive. The buoy marks the diver’s position underwater so the boat safety cover can locate the diver even though the diver may have drifted some distance from the dive site while doing decompression stops. A reel and line connect the buoy on the surface to the diver beneath the surface. Alternative means of marking one’s position while doing decompression stops are diving shots and decompression trapeze.

A decompression buoy is not intended to be used to lift heavy weights: in this case divers use a lifting bag.
