Who should take this course?

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide through the water, use less air and ascend, descend or hover effortlessly - or so it would seem! When divers conserve both energy and air supply, they can more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. 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 open water 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 is included?

  • Two open water dives
  • Basic scuba kit rental (tank, fins, BCD, regulator, weights)
  • Knowledge development, including the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Manual and Peak Performance Buoyancy video. By reading the manual and watching the video before class, you’ll be ready to get in the water and start practicing your buoyancy skills when you meet with your PADI Instructor.
