PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

Glide effortlessly, use less air, ascend and descend or hover, almost as if by thought.



Peak Performance Buoyancy PPBThe PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course defines what neutral buoyancy is. Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. Neutral Buoyancy is the key to calm, relaxing enjoyable dives.

Mastering neutral buoyancy means controlling where you are in the water, you glide effortlessly over coral reefs, taking in the beautiful aquatic life whilst ensuring that you don’t disturb or damage it. Buoyancy control means longer dive time due to reduced air consumption.

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.

Hanging motionless next to a reef allows you to watch the fascinating life going on in front of you, making sure you do not cause any harm to the underwater environment.

Streamlining your equipment, getting your weight requirement correct, and the positioning of your weight makes a huge difference, learn about this on your Peak Performance Buoyancy course.
