PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy
Why Peak Performance Buoyancy?
If you want to fine-tune your buoyancy and soar over reefs or wrecks, extend bottom time by reducing air consumption and prolong the life of your dive equipment, the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course is for you.
While this course may not sound as "exciting" as many other PADI courses, it will do more to improve your diving skills and enjoyment than any other course. Your improved skills will allow you to carry less weight and focus much more of your attention on the dive rather than buoyancy! This course is a MUST!
What do I need to start?
• PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)

What will I do?

• Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water.
• Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.
