To reap the full dive, nothing is better than knowing the underwater world personally. To this you have diving courses, where we can do courses to experience a dive in the sea (Discover Scuba Diving), courses to become an autonomous diver (PADI Open Water Diver) and courses for divers who want to increase their skills both recreational and professional level (PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, Diving Specialty Courses, among others).
