Peak Performance Buoyancy

Learn to Glide, Float and Maneuver Seemingly Effortlessly

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers strive 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.
