Scuba Diver

The Scuba Diver certification opens you the door to the underwater world. If you thought that a diving course would take too long or be too difficult, the PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you!.

This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course but still gets you certified by covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives.


After completing the Scuba Diver course, you will be just two dives away from becoming an Open Water Diver!!!  And, you will be able to ENJOY (discover) more great underwater adventures!
