When you begin looking for a place to learn how to dive there are two major concerns you should have: The Quality of your Instruction and the World-Wide Recognition of your SCUBA Certification Card.
All of our instructors are active divers who love diving and love to teach. They are all members of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), which is the worlds largest certification agency and has the most stringent instructor standards in the industry. Our instructor to student ratio is no more than 10 to 1, which is a requirement of PADI. Our instructors also have Certified PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors working with them to assist you throughout your training. This guarantees that you get the most individualized attention possible during all phases of training.
Once you are a certified diver the world-wide recognition of your certification card is another concern that you should have. Watch out for other certification agencies that claim that they are “International” or that they have “World-Wide Recognition”. The most recognized certification in the world is PADI. There are many dive resort destinations that do not accept or offer any Scuba certifications other than PADI. Don’t let yourself get caught somewhere on vacation and find yourself unable to dive because you had one of those “other” certifications.
