What is the Perfect Buoyancy Diver Specialty Course?

The hardest skill in scuba diving, despite many people's mask fears, is Buoyancy. 

Do you want to increase your buoyancy control, minimize your breathing gas consumption, or move effortlessly above the ocean floor? Do you want to have the skills necessary to start taking great underwater photos and videos?

The SSI Perfect Buoyancy diving course on Koh Tao 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.

Over the period of 2 dives and a theory development session you will about weighting considerations, buoyancy characteristics of your diving equipment, correct finning techniques, correct trim and stowing procedures as well as a number of other things.

These will be put into practice during the dives by completing a number of Buoyancy games that focus on improving your all-round control. 

This will result in your reducing the amount of weights you as a diver need, consequently making you more comfortable underwater. This in turn reduces your size and resistance in the water column, which all has the major effect of reducing your air consumption and allowing you to spend longer on dives.


This Diving Specialty Course is available for anyone that has a diving license, is 10 years or older, and medically fit
