PADI is the world’s leading scuba diver training organization.  The PADI System of diver education is based on progressive training that introduces skills, safety-related information, and local environmental knowledge to student divers in stages. PADI courses are student-centered and provide maximum practice and realistic application.


There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to, but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have is not coaxing participants into the water but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!
