Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course. What will you learn?
During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to:
Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy
Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water
Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water
Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal
What SCUBA gear will you use?
It’s best to use your own scuba equipment, including a weight system, so that you fine-tune your buoyancy in gear you’ll use on every dive. How long does it take?
The Peak Performance Buoyancy course is 2 dives, and taken over one or two days. If you have taken the PADI Adventure Peak Performance Buoyancy dive or the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course with corresponding adventure dive, you can get credit towards this rating at the Instructors discretion. The Peak Performance Buoyancy specialty can be taken in conjunction with the PADI Open Water Diver course just contact us for details and pricing.
