PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

$179.00

As a scuba diver you are well aware of the term neutral buoyancy. The concept is easy to understand: you neither sink nor float. However, actually achieving this while scuba diving takes a bit of practice.
The divers who excel at neutral buoyancy use less effort and therefore consume less air allowing them longer bottom time. They have minimal to no impact on the reef surrounding Utila or elsewhere and are able to ascend, descend and hover effortlessly making their dives as relaxing as possible.

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Description

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Course at Underwater Vision

As a scuba diver you are well aware of the term neutral buoyancy. The concept is easy to understand: you neither sink nor float. However, actually achieving this while scuba diving takes a bit of practice.

The divers who excel at neutral buoyancy use less effort and therefore consume less air allowing them longer bottom time. They have minimal to no impact on the reef surrounding Utila or elsewhere and are able to ascend, descend and hover effortlessly making their dives as relaxing as possible.

Just think about what having better buoyancy control will mean for you as a diver: You will conserve more air and therefore have longer dives. You will feel confident to attempt other PADI Specialty dives which require excellent buoyancy such as: wreck penetration, cave diving, underwater photography or just trying to see into some smaller cracks and crevices to get a glimpse at an elusive octopus or nurse shark as can be seen resting under overhangs in the coral walls around Utila!

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB), course at Underwater Vision will improve upon and practice the skills you learned during the PADI Open Water Diver course working with your PADI instructor doing fun exercises and playing games underwater, you will hardly even realize you are practicing but by the end of the course your buoyancy skills will have advanced to a higher level of confidence and competency.

The most rewarding thing about improving your buoyancy skills is becoming a better diver in a very short amount of time!

What will you learn?

During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to:

  • How to trim your scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water
  • Nuances in determining weight so you’re not too light nor too heavy by even a slight degree
  • How to streamline to save air and move smoothly through the water
  • How to hover effortlessly in both a vertical position and a horizontal position

How can you start learning now?

Visit your local Underwater Vision to enroll in the course and get your PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Manual and Peak Performance Buoyancy video. By reading the manual and watching the video before class, you’ll be ready to get in the water and start practicing your buoyancy skills when you meet with your PADI Instructor.

Next Step

Once your buoyancy has improved you will certainly become a better underwater photographer by achieving the ability to stay still when composing a photo and how to properly position yourself in the water while on scuba. Take the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer and experience the benefits PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy.
