PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

Hallmarks of a good diver are the ability to glide through the water with the grace and ease of a manta, hover for comfortable and accurate safety stops, all the while never making contact with the fragile reef environment. If this sounds like you then congratulations! …... If not, Peak Performance Buoyancy is for you!!

The Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty will polish your buoyancy control beyond the Open Water Diver level. Buoyancy training enhances your diving abilities through knowledge development and practical skills practice. Fine tuning your neutral buoyancy skills benefits you by: conserving your air for more bottom time, saving energy, keeping visibility good which allows for better photos and videos, preventing damage to your dive equipment, and most importantly protecting sensitive aquatic environments. You will learn and practice the PPB fundamentals of 1. Buoyancy checking 2. Fine-tuning buoyancy underwater. 3. Weight positioning and distribution. 4. Streamlining. 5. Visualization techniques!
