PADI was commenced in 1966 by John Cronin and Ralph Erickson. They felt there needed to be a professional organization that made it easy for anybody to become a skilled and confident diver. Prior to this most scuba diving was done primarily by ex navy staff and wasn’t readily available to the common man.

To solve this problem, they joined forces to create the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. PADI, as most people know it today.

PADI now have in excess of 50 different courses to choose from starting from beginner. Like the PADI Discover Scuba Diving and the PADI Open Water courses right up to the professional instructor courses like the PADI Instructor Development course.

They can get you doing specialty courses like the PADI Wreck Diver or PADI Night Diver. One this is for sure is that you will never get bored diving with PADI.

The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]
