There are several dive organizations (PADI, CMAS, ACUC, SSI, FEDAS, NAUI ,…), but PADI, with more than a million certifications a year, certifies more than the double of all others combined. This is not only a quality guarantee but ii warrants you that anywhere you go your PADI certification will be recognized and accepted.
It’s not necessary to buy any piece of equipment as it is included on the courses but it is recommended that you dive with your own equipment. Your instructor is the person who will be able to help you best. You can always start with the “light equipment” such as mask, snorkel, fins and boots.
There are different options: either in your city or on vacations. We highly recommend that you take into account that diving does not end with the course, the bond that grows with your instructor during the course will remain and you would want to have him close for recommendations and counsel, dive with him/her or upgrade your dive level. You will get a higher quality of instruction with someone you already know and you won’t have to worry about studying during holidays.
Even though scuba diving is a very safe sport an insurance is mandatory, the low cost of the insurance reflects the safeness of the sport, you can get a dive insurance for 35€ a year and it’s internationally recognized.
The course is only the door to the whole new world waiting for you. You now will be able to do fun dives with us, you’ll meet the best dives in the coast and will gain new friends with divers just like you. You’ll also be able to upgrade your dive level and try some of the diving specialties such as night dives, wreck dives and deep dives. Your PADI certification will also allow you to dive all over the world and organize some nice dive trips!
