PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Speciality
The most common reason for having to end a dive is poor air consumption. The best way to fix this?  PPB - The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course. The key to becoming a better diver is to be neutrally buoyant at all times . 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.

The fun part of this course is giving your dive skills a polish in ways you may not have thought possible. Dives include swimming through hoops, buoyancy games and mastering hovering in different positions. You will learn how to trim your equipment so you’re perfectly balanced in the water, and how to streamline yourself to save air and move smoothly through the water.
