What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing. Divers who have mastered the art of Peak Performance Buoyancy really stand out! Take the PPB course and get more out of every dive.
Why take the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty?
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. Once you have mastered your bouyancy you will find that you dive with less effort & more fun, use less air, cause less damage to the aquatic environment and see more while you are down there.
