Float effortlessly, drifting over reefs. Be the diver you want to be, with ultimate buoyancy control, able to hover close to the bottom and examine underwater organisms without touching them.
Buoyancy skills separate the good divers from the greatdivers. In the Peak Performance Buoyancy Speciality course, you will learn to how to precisely weight yourself for optimum control, poise and balance.
You learn to ascend and descend so effortlessly, it seems like you only think about it and it happens. By mastering streamlining, you move through the water cleanly, efficiently and gracefully. You swim near fragile environments without harm to them or yourself.
PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course Description
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.
In the pool we will set you a number of buoyancy challenges, developing the skills you would have learned at open Water and beyond.
These challenges may include hovering in multiple positions, an obstacle course, reverse finning, and ‘egg and spoon’.
On open water dive one and two the challenges will include a buoyancy check, hovering, breath control buoyancy, efficient fin kicks and an obstacle course.
For each skill you instructor will be focussing on your buoyancy techniques, body position and control.
