What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing. Divers who’ve mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart. You’ve seen them underwater, they glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, almost as if by thought. 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 of this course is giving your dive skills a polish you may not have thought possible.
To take this course, you must be:
You use all the basic scuba gear including a computer. This is the perfect course to try out a different style of BCD or solidify your skills with a newly purchased BCD.
