Thinking of getting certified for an upcoming vacation, but don’t have the time to become fully certified? Here is a quick and easy program designed especially for you! This is your chance to slap on some fins, pull on a mask and experience an intense adventure in a short amount of time. The PADI Scuba Diver program (Recreational Scuba Diver) is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a couple times a year. As a subprogram of the PADI Open Water Diver program, the PADI Scuba Diver rating allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimizing time constraints. With the PADI Scuba Diver you can dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Instructor or higher professional on your next vacation or dive trip.

How It Works

Throughout the course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing pool dives, knowledge development sessions and by making two open water dives. This program is a wonderful opportunity to explore the underwater world with the comfort and safety of having an experienced guide with you at all times. The knowledge and skills you learn in this program are just the beginning of an exciting array of courses and programs that await. With a PADI Scuba Diver certification card, you will be able to obtain air fills, scuba equipment and other services for diving under supervision. Once completed, you can apply your new Scuba Diver rating towards your complete PADI Open Water Certification at a later date of your choosing.
