Peak Performance Buoyancy

The first and probably the most important technique while learning how to dive is buoyancy. However, it is also the hardest to master and to be honest… you never completely master it and gravity is to blame.

Our programmed reactions to gravity in the surface do not apply underwater, the reason why it is such a tricky technique is because it is dynamic, it changes during the dive, changes from one dive destination to another, it changes with the equipment used (especially if you use rental), and it changes with our body structure. However our safety in diving is directly affected by our control in buoyancy, especially as it is paramount for keeping our maximum allowable depth, proper ascend rates and safety stops. Proper buoyancy control is our first defense against dive related injuries.

Our program is divided in 2 days. We conduct a total of 3 dives and 3 hours of a presentation by one of our instructors to cover the physics and physiological principles that rules buoyancy while diving.
