Peak Performance Buoyancy

PADI Specialties

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. Their good buoyancy helps them observe aquatic life easily without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learn as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

Peak Performance Buoyancy

What you learn

During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to:

  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy
  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water
  • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water
  • Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal


The PEAK PERFORMANCE Specialty consists of two dives. If you are a certified AOWD Diver, and have completed your adventure dive as part of the AOW course, you can complete this Specialty faster. Please contact us to schedule.
