PADI Diving Center offers this program either in a swimming pool, in shallow water off the beach or from a dive boat. You can try diving near you or at a diving center while on vacation.

    - To get to know the feeling of being able to breathe underwater.
    - To learn the most important skills needed for diving.
    - Have fun swimming around and exploring the underwater environment.
    - Inform you how to become a “certified” diver (i.e. a diver with a PADI diver’s license) through the PADI Open Water Diver course.
