EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS


PADI Scuba Diver is your first step to PADI certification. You may only need a little more training plus a total of two dives to earn this certification. This is a great option if you want more knowledge and experience, and plan to scuba dive primarily with a PADI Professional.

PADI Open Water Diver is the course for you if you want the freedom to discover the underwater world without a dive guide. With a little more training and a total of four dives, you could become a certified scuba diver free to explore the aquatic realm with another certified buddy.

Start with PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Diver – the choice is yours!
