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!

“brilliant organisation and awesome diving!!!” Into the blue is a very well organised and professionally run dive shop...

I dived with Into the blue last week, and despite having an early meeting time was greeted by the staff with instant smiles and friendliness. Within 15 minutes the blond lady at reception had our whole groups paperwork sorted, gear packed, and introductions given.

There was a groupf of about 7 of us, and we all got to know eachother and the rest of the staff very well throughout the day. Everyone of the staff was friendly and happy to lend a helping hand, and they were very thorough and professional throughout the day.

The dive conditions didn't end up being so good, but the skipper GP was wise enough to call off the second dive for safety and we were sorted out back at the shop with rescheduling and refunds.

Very well done, and I would highly recommend for any divers visiting Cape town. I will be back to dive with Into the blue again!!!
