Sharks are often wrongly portrayed by the media as dangerous and a threat to divers. In fact sharks are unique and play a crucial role in keeping our ocean healthy. Unfortunately some sharks species are close to becoming extinct and will be lost forever. The Grey Nurse Sharks which are regularly seen on our boat dives at Broughton Island is listed as Critically Endangered. The Project Aware Shark Conservation Course provides valuable information about sharks and the major threats to their existence, as well as some conservation management strategies and the reasons why we should be fighting to save the amazing creatures, but best of all you will learn what action we can take to give sharks a fighting chance. 

The course includes two dives where your instructor will discuss environmental issues which affect the wellbeing of the sharks. This course may be counted towards the prestigious Master Scuba Diver rating.

Diving option. The course can be completed as two shore dives but we recommend the course be completed with our double boat dive to Broughton Island. If you are a certified nitrox diver you may receive a nitrox fill in your 2nd tank at a discounted rate if you specify at time of booking!

Your course cost includes a $10 donation to Project A.W.A.R.E. At your discretion you may choose to match or better this donation to help this worthwhile cause.


The fun part about this course is the opportunity to explore the deep. It’s exhilarating! After your first few scuba dives, you soon want to explore a bit deeper. There’s something exciting and mysterious about the depth that attracts divers.

Our Deep Diver Specialty program is a series of 4 Instructor-led training dives for certification to a maximum depth of 40 metres. The program is divided up into 4 dives over two days. All deep dives through Lets Go Adventures are no-decompression deep dives.

Consider new hazards that may exist at deeper depths, such as reduced visibility and colder water temperature changes like thermo clines.

Who should take this course?

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level. 

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course. 

What will you learn?

During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to:

  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy.
  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
  • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water.
  • Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.

Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
