Peak Performance Buoyancy

What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing. Excellent buoyancy control is what defines a skilled scuba diver. Divers who’ve mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart.

They interact gently with aquatic life and affect their surroundings minimally. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course refines the basic skills you learned as a PADI Open Water Diver and elevates them to the next level.

The Fun Part

The fun part of this course is giving your dive skills an extra gold star for performance. Unfortunately we have seen the poor diver examples of those who tumble into the reef or other divers. Diving with proper trim and neutral buoyancy makes you a better diver. You have seen them … they glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, with complete confidence and ease.

Proper buoyancy also preserves your air, potentially extending your bottom time. Would you rather expend more air fighting for neutral buoyancy or for bottom time? Graduates of the Peak Performance Buoyancy course tend to become strong advocates for reef conservation and instil these values on others.

What You Learn

During two scuba dives, you’ll learn to:

  • Ensure proper weighting, so you’re not too light or too heavy.
  • How to 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.
  • Practise maneuvering through hoops and ladders to demonstrate your skills

Your Next Adventure

Part of mastering buoyancy control is learning how to use your BCD and weight system effectively, plus maintain streamlining. This makes the PADI Equipment Specialist course a natural companion, because you learn more about these pieces of gear and how to make them suit your specific diving styles. Pairing this course with a Project Aware Fish ID or Wreck Diving course makes a great combination also.

This course earns you credit towards the PADI Master Scuba Diver standing.
