What is a PADI course?
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors are better known to their friends as just, PADI. PADI provides a worldwide network of dive centres offering courses for beginners through to professionals. Starting with an Open Water Course you’ll combine video learning, reading and self assessment, with tutored instruction, five confined dives (exercises in shallow water), and four open water dives (exercises in deeper water, and time to explore).
For European waterbabies, Dahab in the Red Sea is one of the best places to undertake PADI training as not only is it accessible, but it has warm water, great visibility – and a phenomenal range of coral, fish species and even sea turtles.
