Perfect Buoyancy or Peak Performance Buoyancy

If you want to fine-tune your buoyancy and soar over reefs, extend bottom time by reducing air consumption and prolong the life of your dive equipment, the Perfect Buoyance Specialty course is for you.

During your Perfect Buoyancy Specialty course, you’ll determine the correct amount of weight you need so you’re not too light or too heavy. Then you'll practice the fundamentals of perfect buoyancy during two open water dives, including the buoyancy check, fine-tuning buoyancy underwater, weight positioning for trim, streamlining and visualization and total buoyancy control in your dives. Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water. Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.

It’s best to use your own scuba equipment, including a weight system, so that you fine-tune your buoyancy in gear you’ll use on every dive. The instructors of Blue Bottom Diving will advise you, always depending on your preferences, adjustments and budget and they can help you find the equipment that is best for you and your diving adventures


Please note there are regulations about flying or going to altitude after diving. Currently the rules state that for a single no decompression dive, you should not fly/go to altitude for at least 12 hours. For multiple dives you should not fly/go to altitude for at least 18 hours. Blue Bottom Diving recommends waiting a minimum 24 hours whenever possible. Altitude is 300m/1000ft above sea level. This includes going to the Teide, so be careful when you are booking tours to follow your dive course. Under normal circumstances, you should be out of the water on your last dive at 15pm (midday), this should help with organizing any travel plans you have after your dive trip with us.
