PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Speciality Course

From: $127

Are you a new diver who is still not confident with your buoyancy? Or a diver who has not dived in a while and feels rusty? Then the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course could be an ideal choice for you. During this one-day course, you’ll practice various buoyancy skills, improve your breathing technique when diving and learn what your ideal weighting is. By the end of the day, you will be far more confident with managing your buoyancy and will probably use fewer weights, helping your air last longer on a dive. A win, win result!

Note – The above price is for one person without Sabah Parks Diving Permit fees. The minimum booking is for two people. If you are on your own, please contact our sales office to see if we have another scheduled course running.

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy ‘PPB’ Diver Speciality Course, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy ‘PPB’ Speciality course, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, with Borneo Dream, will assist all divers in polishing their buoyancy control beyond the PADI Open Water Diver level. The goal of PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy training is to enhance the student’s buoyancy control abilities through knowledge development and skills practice. So, start today and be a better diver, gracefully gliding through the underwater world!

We believe this is the most important course any new or experienced diver can take part in. Every Diver who has completed the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB) speciality dive as part of their PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course has noticed a big improvement in their diving ability. In fact, the most common thing we see with divers is that they are generally over-weighted. This can be due to many reasons – from ‘I never lost those extra kilos from training’ to ‘I like being heavy, heavy is safe’ . . . Many are then tempted to complete the full PADI PPB speciality course.

PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Diver Speciality Course by Borneo Dream, Kota Kinabalu

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy ‘PPB’ Speciality course, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, has two (2) ocean dives and is completed in 1 day. The course takes place in the safe training conditions of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. During the course, you will learn about PADI’s “Basic Weighting Guidelines” as well as have the opportunity during your course dives to polish buoyancy control beyond the Open Water Diver level via the development of the following skills:-

  • Positioning and distributing weight for comfort and desired body position (trim in the water)
  • Buoyancy checks
  • Establishing neutral buoyancy during all segments of a dive
  • Hovering

Borneo Dream also likes to make this course fun and will include different underwater games during your course dives, all aimed at improving your buoyancy.

You could also combine this course with the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer speciality course – so not only do you perfect your diving buoyancy skills to help you dive closer to coral reefs, you also learn more about how to take great underwater photos too. A nice combination!
