PADI is the world's largest recreational scuba diving training organization. We offer a wide range of PADI scuba diving courses for beginners, advanced divers, and even professional divers. PADI courses are designed to teach individuals how to safely explore the underwater world while emphasizing environmental responsibility and respect. The courses include a combination of knowledge development, skill practice, and open water dives, with certification awarded upon successful completion. Whether you're looking to try scuba diving for the first time or to become a professional dive instructor, PADI has a course to fit your needs and goals.
Discover Scuba Diving
Have you always wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. We offer this program either in a pool, off a beach or from a dive boat. You can try scuba close to home or while you're on vacation at a dive destination.
Advanced Open Water Diver
Learn about underwater navigation, deep diving and three types of specialty diving that interest you. After some skill practice with your instructor, you'll make five open water dives. There's no exam because this course is truly about having fun and gaining experience.
Emergency First Response
An accident can happen anytime, anywhere. Whether it’s a burn, scrape, broken bone, or something even more serious, it’s important to know what steps to take.
Gain confidence in your abilities through hands-on practice, and learn how to remember what steps to take in an emergency.
Open Water Diver
Learn about scuba diving principles and terminology (either offline or online), then learn basic scuba skills in a pool (or pool-like environment) with a highly trained PADI Instructor. When you're ready, make four dives in an open water environment (the ocean, a lake) with your instructor supporting you every step of the way.
Learn how to think like a rescue diver through home study and skill practice with an instructor. All PADI courses are flexible and performance-based. You'll practice basic rescue skills and then show you can effectively apply them in open water.
PADI Specialty Courses – many now available with digital learning – give you the tools to enhance your exploration. Discover your unique diving aptitude - deep diving, photography, videography, fish identification, etc.
Dive Accident Insurance
DAN dive accident insurance is an affordable way for divers to obtain insurance against the costs of dive injuries that are often left uncovered by typical health insurance.
