What is good buoyancy underwater?
48365856 2430179026997562 2901885818794672128 o
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. This course helps you feel more confident in your dive skills underwater. This is a 2 tank specialty and one of the most important for every diver!
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course.
Sign up at Central Oregon Diving to change your dive skills and take you to the next level. This is a perfect course to take for a beginner diver or a seasoned veteran. Every diver needs to have good dive skills and this is one of the most important skills to obtain. This is a one day course offered throughout the summer. Which date works best for you???
