    Discover Scuba Diving Experience
    Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater.

Most PADI dive shops offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or while you’re on vacation.

    While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

    To take the Discover Scuba Diving Experience you must be at least 10 years old.

    PADI Scuba Diver
    Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you.

Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver.To take this course you must be at least 15 years old (10 years old for Junior Scuba Diver certification).
