Do your plans this year take you to destinations that you would be diving multiple dives a day for several days? Would you like to extend your bottom time underwater to explore longer? Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no-decompression time, especially on repetitive on scuba dives. If you are not certified in Nitrox consider it today. We offer several trips that you can use Nitrox, and our Bonaire and Fiji trip includes FREE Nitrox. The course is taught with a computer, so bring your computer and know how it functions and how to navigate thru the screens and change settings. If you need to rent a computer for the evening we have one to rent for $10. The benefit of diving with a computer and nitrox is longer bottom time, so if you don't own one, you might consider purchasing one. We have several models to choose from. Receive a discount on a new dive computer after taking this course to upgrade your current model or get you into your first dive computer. This is a classroom course and knowledge reveiews are done ahead of time. Come in to sign up for this FUN course and DIVE LONGER! Space is limited!

What is good buoyancy underwater?
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. This course helps you feel more confident in your dive skills underwater. This is a 2 tank specialty and one of the most important for every diver!

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course.
 

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.
