Frecuent Asked Questions
PADI Certification Buenos Aires

Do you need to be a strong swimmer to scuba dive?
  No, not at all. All you need is to move around in the water with confidence. Style and speed don't matter.  
I have no experience. Which course should I do first?

The best choice would be to start with OPEN WATER DIVER (See Info) This course consists of 5 three-hour practical and theory lessons. This grants you a license to scuba dive anywhere in the world together with a diving buddy of any level, who does not need to be an instructor: your buddy can be any certified diver of your same level (friend, partner, shipmate).
