PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty

From €180

2 dives


Perfect your stability via the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy course, this course is a lot of fun   What is neutral buoyancy?  It’s the preferred state of divers, as they neither sink nor float, and it’s not always easy to master.  Divers who master their buoyancy are different, easily recognisable underwater, gliding without any effort, consuming less air, descending, ascending and maintaining a given depth naturally, without thinking about it.  The Peak Performance Specialty allows you to work on and perfect certain techniques learnt during the PADI Open Water Course.  You’ll be welcomed in a familiar and relaxed atmosphere, by a team of serious professionals who put an accent on leisure and pleasure!

What’s different with Aqualonde?

  • No lifting, your gear is systematically transported with our chariots between the centre and the 10 metres distance towards the boat.
  • Hot showers on the boat and in the dive centre changing rooms.
  • Our faithful Jéronimo, a comfortable hard boat (not a RIB), with seating and protection for the waves, welcoming a maximum of 28 divers.
  • Access to an innovative extra : a dive analysed by a Dopper ultrasound (not invasive, no needle) “O’Dive” that for the first time globally allows a diver to adapt his diving by taking account of gas microbubbles detected in the veins after the dive.  This gives you real physiological data (not just theoretical) about your decompression thanks to a French startup “O’Dive”.
  • Access to a cutting edge extra: video recording of the dive thanks to “iBubble” and autonomous, intelligent, wireless underwater drone.  It’ll film your dives, providing a souvenir and above all offering a more detailed debriefing. In brief, an exceptional teaching tool to see your performance (without doubt extraordinary!) from an outside perspective.  Thanks, here again, to a French startup “iBubble”.
  • Access to the most beautiful and prestigious dive sites of the Meditterranean.  You’ll discover the marine park of “Port Cros” and Porquerolles amongst the Golden Islands, opposite “Fort Bregançon” the residence of the President of the Republic.  The pinnacles (little underwater mountains) or the famous “Gabinière drop off” one of the most protected and richly populated sites in the heart of the “Port Cros” marine reserve.  Or even a wreck called the “Cimentier” (3-15m).  There is something for all tastes, enormous schools of barracuda, from turtles to sunfish via monkfish and groupers and red gorgonians!
  • The closest dive centre to the Golden Islands from the mainland.
  • Many hotels and restaurants nearby, for all budgets.  La Londe Les Maures is at the heart of the Côte d’Azur, between Hyères and St Tropez, in one of the most preserved areas due to the “Port Cros” National Park and the summer residence of the President of the Republic : “Fort Bregançon”.  We’re located on the port, with a big car park, a departure point for the ferries to the Golden Islands and all public transport connections.  There are many other activities available for all of the family while you’re making bubbles!
