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.

This is a PADI specialty that we teach along with Rescue, but can be taken as a specialty course that counts toward your Master Scuba Diver. Come into the shop to sign up for this life saving course. We are also doing Emergency First Response CPR training with this course. Both of these courses are needed for Rescue Course. If you would like to take just one of these courses as you already have current CPR or would like to just take the EFR portion that is an option also.
