Imagine never worrying about your buoyancy again, knowing exactly how to weight yourself for your environment and exposure protection, and how to fin efficiently. 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. Plus, this counts as one of your five specialties towards earning your PADI Master Scuba Diver rating!
*COVID-19 UPDATE August 2020*
Due to the uncertain nature of when restrictions will lift for Victoria, we have temporarily suspended all in-water activities.
Online learning for Open Water, Advanced, Rescue, Enriched Air, Equipment Specialist, Freediver and DM is still available.
Buoyancy is the key skill in scuba diving. Once mastered, you will notice significant improvements in your air consumption and bottom time, meaning that you can spend longer underwater.
You will drop weight, as you will understand exactly how much weight you need – and where – and not need to overweight yourself in order to sink.
Find yourself more relaxed on every dive, with no lurking anxieties of breaking your safety stop or ascending from depth.
If you are a photographer, you will capture amazing photographs, because you can spend mental energy focusing on your camera and subject, not on your position in the water.
Everything improves when we have mastered our buoyancy whilst scuba diving.
How to trim your scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water
