Peak Performance Buoyancy-Sept 23

Posted: Sep 06 in Dive Blog, Latest News by

TECHPHOTO5

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

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

  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy.
  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
  • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water.
  • Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

Tuition: $100 plus manual

Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Class-Aug 28

Posted: Aug 15 in Dive Blog, Latest News by

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 in the water: they glide effortlessly,  use less air, and ascend, descend or hover almost without thought.  They interact gently with aquatic life and have little or no affect on their surroundings.  With a little coaching and practice, you too can be that diver.

The Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Class gives divers of all levels an opportunity to build a solid foundation of buoyancy, balance, trim, and weighting skills which are the keys to fun and effortless diving. You will also be introduced to new propulsion and positioning techniques.   The class consists of two open water dives with on site information exchanges.  Tuition is $100 plus manual.  Prerequisites: open water or Jr open water certification.

If you only take one class this year, let it be this one.  Sign up today!
