Short of remembering to breathe and equalize, there is no skill more critical to divers than controlling buoyancy — and no skill more difficult for new divers to master. 

Unfortunately, the average diver’s buoyancy skills need work-  and sometimes can even be so poor that they make divers a danger to themselves and the environment.

Do you want to increase your buoyancy control, minimize your breathing gas consumption, or move effortlessly above the ocean floor? Just Add Water's Perfect Buoyancy program teaches you the skills and techniques needed to maximize your dive experience, increase your comfort in the water, and get the most from your equipment. 


What is Involved?

This course involves self study, followed by a single classroom session, during which you will go over equipment and discuss upcoming dives and skills. This is followed by a day of in-water training.
