SSI Perfect Buoyancy Specialty course

Diver in Perfect Buoyancy
Perfect Buoyancy diver

SSI Perfect Buoyancy Specialty course is a specialty that can be fully conducted in a pool. The training aims to optimize the buoyancy control of a diver.  Streamlined and graceful, a diver with good buoyancy glides through the water effortlessly, leaving others in awe and admiration.

More often than not, you see your instructors glide through water, seemingly not even moving an inch. In this course, we will teach you exactly that. You will learn how to breathe, when to kick and when not to kick to reach a trance-like condition underwater.

With good buoyancy control, you will consume less air, and is less likely to get fatigue underwater. You will also utilize different fin kick methods to make maneuvering underwater easier. In this course, you will learn skills like backward finning (Reverse Frogkick), 360° finning (Helicopter fin kicks) and many more.

The duration of the course is one day and you can stretch it longer if you are staying for long period in Phuket.

What do you do and where do we teach you

As mentioned above, your instructor at Blue Label can conduct your SSI perfect buoyancy course entirely in the pool. You need to choose your dive gear set-ups, and train your buoyancy skills in accordance to it. Hence, many of our students choose to conduct SSI Perfect Buoyancy Specialty with the Sidemount Specialty course.

You can also choose to conduct your course as part of a diving day trip. If that is the case, you need at least 2 dives to finish the skills, and finish the theory exam on the boat.

In the end, the perfect buoyancy specialty can be a really rewarding course to learn. After the enlightenment, you surely will start referring scuba diving as a sport more like yoga, and not swimming.
