PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

Dive like a pro!

The Course

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 the 1 classroom session and 2 dives over 1 day you will learn 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


Must hold a PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification or higher and be of the minimum age of 12 years old.
