PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY

The Peak Performance Buoyancy course is important for divers of all levels as it enhances safety, promotes conservation, improves air consumption, refines skills, enhances the overall diving experience, prepares for advanced diving pursuits, and boosts diving confidence through effective buoyancy control and precision underwater movement.

STEPS

Purchase your course material from our diveshop, you may choose from having the PADI Manual or PADI eLearning. If you have a busy schedule we suggest PADI eLearning to fit easily your scuba lessons during your work or at home. Work at your own pace, online or offline, connect with your instructor for inwater training, or whenever you have a question.

eLearning time commitment: 2-4 hours

Determine how much weight you need and where to place trim weights to streamline your body position. During two dives you’ll fine-tune your weighting during buoyancy checks and master neutral buoyancy with inwater practice.

  • Prerequisites: PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver (or qualifying entry-level certification)
  • Total time commitment: 1-2 days

OTHER COSTS AND EQUIPMENT

This course requires both knowledge development and in-person training for certification.

When you purchase the PADI eLearning course or PADI Manual (diveshop), the cost covers the knowledge development portion only.

There is an additional cost to complete your practical training with a PADI Instructor. Please contact your PADI Dive Center or Resort for pricing. If you do not own a set of scuba equipment, you will need to rent gear.

It’s best to use your own scuba equipment during this class so you can fine-tune your buoyancy wearing gear you’ll use on every dive.

MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving. Avoid disappointment, review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
