What is good buoyancy underwater?

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???

Do your plans this year take you to destinations that you would be diving multiple dives a day for several days? Would you like to extend your bottom time underwater to explore longer? Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no-decompression time, especially on repetitive on scuba dives. If you are not certified in Nitrox consider it today. We offer several trips that you can use Nitrox. The course is taught with a dive computer, so bring your dive computer and know how it functions and how to navigate thru the screens and change settings. If you need to rent a computer for the evening we have one to rent for $10. The benefit of diving with a computer and nitrox is longer bottom time, so if you don't own one, you might consider purchasing one. We have several models to choose from. This is an eLearning course and academics are taught online and practical analization is done in shop. Social Distancing will be enforced and class size is limited, so come in to sign up for this FUN course and DIVE LONGER! Space is limited!
