Trust us when we say the first breath you’ll take underwater will be unforgettable—it’s a mix of doubt, adrenaline, fear, and amazement. As you plunge into the water, the gear and tanks suddenly seem weightless; you raise your arm nervously, immersing yourself slowly into another dimension where light, noise, and everything around you seem a little too different, yet a little familiar.

Since 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, learning to scuba dive is more than just a rewarding achievement or a new hobby—it’s an opportunity to explore another realm of our planet that, unfortunately, many people miss. It’s a lot more than just getting underwater between coral gardens, shipwrecks, conservation projects, and human-made statues. Yep, becoming PADI certified through PADI courses will open endless avenues for you to enjoy life to the fullest!

Let’s look at 3 reasons why you should enroll in a PADI dive course.

1. Safety

A dive guide is not required for certified divers. You will enjoy your dives more knowing you are trained well according to PADI standards. However, it’s recommended to hire a certified divemaster, and they’ll help you discover the best dive sites, especially during your first visit to a country. In addition, you’ll remain safe.

2. Freedom

Thanks to the PADI certification, you can dive wherever you want independently in most countries. Many countries have easy-to-navigate shore and boat dives. But it is always recommended to dive with a dive buddy. And for those with less experience, it is best to find a dive center that will provide well-qualified dive guides and that keeps their groups small for safety’s sake.

3. Recognition

Want to go on a scuba diving vacation to any country? Fear not; you’ll be able to do scuba diving as a certified diver. Every dive center recognizes PADI licenses. So, feel free to become a part of any diving trips and go down as much as 18 meters as an Open Water diver and up to 30 meters as an Advanced Diver. With a PADI certification or specialty course, no one will stop you from exploring the many underwater worlds across the planet.
