Bubble Makers and Trouble Makers!

Thanks to the Navarro family who were here on a diving holiday from China! The kids were super-enthusiastic and great fun to have around. Jorge did his Bubblemaker course, Jacobo did the Junior Scuba Diver course, Dad Angel did the Scuba Diver course, and poor little Pablo who is too young to dive assumed his role as the official Trouble maker!

Great fun, we hope to see you guys again!

About the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course

Scuba divers should be  neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float, and it can be a tricky skill to master.

Divers who have  the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart from others.  They can glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, seeming with no effort at all.  They interact gently with aquatic life and affect their surroundings as minimally as possible.

The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course refines the basic skills you learned as a PADI Open Water Diver and elevates them to the next level.

You will learn how to trim your scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water, and move more smoothly through the water (reducing your air consumption), as well as how to hover effortlessly in both vertical and horizontal positions. Excellent skills to have in any open water diving environment.

This course is one of the many PADI courses available at Scandi Divers Resort, so there are many options for ways for you to improve you diving knowledge and skills while diving with us in Puerto Galera.
