PADI BUOYANCY COURSE CAPE TOWN - INTRODUCTION

Are you feeling out of control when you scuba dive? Do you feel like you are either stirring up the sand on the ocean floor or shooting to the surface and do you struggle to maintain the perfect balance between the two extremes?

Then the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course is a must for you! With PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy you put the fun back into diving by removing the stress of constantly having to adjust your buoyancy with your low-pressure inflator hose.

No one enjoys a dive when they feel uncomfortable or like they are not in control which is why this course is perfect for you as it puts you back in control of your dive. Now you can feel like a pro because you don’t have to think about your buoyancy any more, it just happens naturally!

Great Experience - I did two fun dives with Into The Blue (plus I also booked the shark cage...

 through them) and I had an excellent experience. The communication via email was great and the brunette at reception (I'm really sorry but I didn't catch your name) was very friendly and helpful. My dive guide for the day was Jacque, who was also very welcoming and made the day a lot of fun. We did a wreck dive which was okay and then a dive with seals, and from my 800+ dives it was definitely one of my most favourite so far. JP was driving the boat for us and he was very attentive, the whole dive centre seemed very organised and I would definitely recommend them. The only disappointment from the day was that Llewellyn didn't ask me to marry him :)
Thanks a lot guys!
