Without a doubt, scuba diving is the fastest growing adventure sport in the world. When it comes to fun and fitness, scuba diving leads the pack and it is enjoyed by people of all ages. As a sport, scuba diving is unique because it has no age limitations; it's non-competitive, and best of all it's a sport that you can travel with. For those of you in search of some adventure, some relaxation or just something different - scuba diving is for you.
Anyone even thinking about scuba diving should consider actually trying it in a pool and under the supervision of a qualified scuba instructor. This is what is commonly referred to as an Introductory Scuba Lesson, or a Discover Scuba. Any one of these is a most enjoyable and rewarding experience. Once you have taken the first step of trying scuba diving in a pool, and have experienced "breathing underwater" and the feeling of "weightlessness" you may now be ready to enroll in a full and accredited PADI Open Water Scuba Course. The PADI system also allows you to use the PADI Open Water Scuba Course as an American University credit for various degree programs such as biological sciences, oceanography, archaeology and physical education.
The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the most popular diver training program in the world - and your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure.
