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. The course continues to work towards role model buoyancy, trim and propulsion; giving you an elite fine level control of your movement in the water.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course. Perfect for those looking to start using camera systems underwater, or start more advanced diving such as wreck diving or technical diving.
During two scuba dives, you’ll:
- Be reminded of the exact weight you need, so that you’re not too light or too heavy.
- Check the trim your weight system and scuba gear so that you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
- Check the streamlining of your equipment to save energy, use air more efficiently
- Learn to move more smoothly through the water in any direction you choose, using a range of advanced propulsion techniques.
- Practice hovering effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.
This is a full PADI Speciality, and counts towards your Master Scuba Diver qualification.
