WHAT IS PADI CERTIFIED

 

The PADI Diver Course is the world’s most popular scuba diving training course, giving you a license to scuba dive anywhere in the world. From the age of 10, you can learn how to dive and if you are medically fit to dive there is no maximum age.

Galápagos Islands is one of the best places in the world to get your license because of the large and diverse range of marine life and the visibility in the water.
