Should I Do Peak Performance Buoyancy Training?

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Roatan Diver

When it comes to scuba diving, good buoyancy makes all the difference in the world!

Mastering buoyancy allows a diver to become better with air consumption and having good buoyancy is important to protect fragile coral reefs which are damaged easily.

Your enjoyment and comfort levels increase exponentially when your buoyancy is well controlled, your kicks are smooth and you are streamlined.

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy specialty is a great 2-dive specialty designed to improve your buoyancy, but for those short on time, you can still do the PADI PPB Adventure dive to get a head start on buoyancy improvement!
For our PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, we always recommend starting the course with the PPB Adventure dive because it can make your subsequent dives easier and more fun, and most PADI professionals will agree that it’s one of the most beneficial dives you can do.

Even doing just one PPB-centric dive will make you a better diver in the long run, so consider a PPB dive the next time you go diving.


Improve Your Buoyancy Control

  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy.

  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear for perfect balance 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.
