The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subcategory of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you're short on time but want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver course may be right for you-especially if you plan to dive primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step on the way to becoming an Open Water Diver, if that is your ultimate goal.
PADI Scuba Divers are qualifed to:
To participate in a PADI Scuba Diver course (or Junior Scuba Diver course) you must be at least 10 years old. You must have adequate swimming skills and be in good physical condition. You don't need any previous diving experience, but you can try it as part of the Discover Scuba Diving program.
You learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment you need and may suggest additional educational materials, such as the required logbook.
