70% of our planet is covered with water, and 97% of that water is in the ocean. So it’s no surprise we want to learn more about it!
Under sea diving is popular because it gives us a look at a world completely different from the one we see on land. But an unfamiliar ecosystem brings a new set of challenges and expectations.
Whether you’re new to diving or you want to look into ways to up the adventure on your next trip, you may need some specific certifications. Here are a few recommended certifications you may want to look into before your next underwater diving experience.
Open Water Certification
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular SCUBA diving certification out there. This course demonstrates how to properly manage SCUBA equipment and introduces you to the world of ocean diving.
With thousands of species of plants and animals in our oceans, the options for discovery are endless with an Open Water certification.
