What Qualifications Do I Need to Start?

If you are at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another agency) you can enroll in the Peak Performance Buoyancy course.

How Does It Work?

You can start your PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy online course any time and then you can register on our website for one of our upcoming courses. After completing your online course, you will head out for your two Peak Performance Buoyancy dives. These dives typically happen on a Sunday at Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, RI. Other locations may be scheduled. You will meet your instructor at the dive site and begin with a review of proper weighting, trim and dive planning. You will then conduct your two dives and gain this valuable certification. The Peak Performance Buoyance certification also counts as one of your five dives for Advanced Open Water!

Do I Need My Own Equipment?

Yes - As a certified diver you are expected to own your own scuba equipment. With advanced notice, BCDs and regulators are available through Scuba Shack's Rental Program. Just keep in mind a key element of peak performance buoyancy is your equipment and the best way to dial in buoyancy is with your own gear.

Based on your responses, you may be required to have your physician clear you for recreational scuba diving. A fully completed medical questionnaire is an absolute requirement prior to any in-water activity with Scuba Shack
