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.

Stop into the shop to register for this great course.

DPV 1

Course is taught as a private course so space is limited!

DPVs offer a thrilling way for scuba divers to see a lot of underwater territory in a short amount of time. They scoot you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. Whether making a shore or boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.

If you’re at least 15 years old and a PADI Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course.

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You’ll make two dives and learn about:

Maintaining your DPV.
How to plan dives, including procedures for staying with your buddy.
DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents.
Potential problems and ways to deal with them.

We are offering this Specialty Course as a PRIVATE course. Cost is $350 for course, materials, and DPV rental.
Course offered on August 3, August 4, September 7, September 8.

As this is a private course times are limited so reserve your spot today! Course takes about half a day so spots are going fast.
