Perfect Buoyancy

 Perfect Buoyancy Specialty

Purple Split Fans in CaymanWhat is neutral buoyancy?  Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float.  It can be a tricky thing.  Divers who've mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart.  You've seen them diving underwater; how they glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover, almost as if by thought.  They interact gently with aquatic life and affect their surroundings minimally.  The Perfect Buoyancy Specialty refines your basic skills that were learned as a Goose's Open Water Diver and elevates them to the next level.
