Would you like to improve the way you move?

Flying in a plane gives you a great view of whatever is happening below you, but you are not able to stop and hover over something of interest to you, in a helicopter you have a birds eye view and the ability to stop and hover over special interests.

Diving can present the same view as flying at times. With above average buoyancy control you are able to stop over the top of something you want to watch, with less than average buoyancy control you crash into what you want to watch. The freedom good buoyancy control gives you increases your enjoyment and also helps to reduce how much air you use during a dive, because of body position and efficient use of your equipment.

Those people who want to use an Underwater Digital Camera or Underwater Video Camera during a dive really should consider Peak Performance Buoyancy to be part of purchasing the camera unit itself. Buoyancy control is important on all scuba dives and in all environments but especially if Underwater Camera Equipment is to be used effectively and safely.
