If you are someone who is interested in exploring the underwater world, then it is an absolute must to have a certification or no reputable dive centre will give you tanks. This is because scuba diving is an adventure sport. While it is one of the safest adventure sports, it does come with it’s own risks. This is why you need a license to go diving. Because when you become a certified scuba diver, it is proof that you have received the necessary training you require to go underwater.

Here are four good reasons you should become a certified scuba diver: 

1. Exploration

As a certified diver, you get to explore a part of the planet that not a lot of people have had the privilege to do. Our oceans are less explored compared to outer space, so the chances of stumbling about new incredible dive sites is very high. As a PADI certified diver, you can go to any dive centre in the world and go for fun dives and enjoy a whole new world and underwater experience.

2. Dive Trips

You can make every trip a dive trip! They are so much more fun and you even get to make so many new friends. Dive trips are basically trips that has an the main focus on scuba diving. Many dive centres organise dive trips as well as liveaboard trips. That means you literally live on a dive boat and explore the underwater world.

3. Get Closer To Nature

By getting certified, you get to become a better scuba diver with the correct training. This allows for you to closely observe marine life without disturbing them. Scuba diving is nothing short of an underwater safari where you will always get to observe and learn about the incredible marine life that resides underwater.

4. Upgrade

Getting your beginner level scuba certification (which is the PADI Open Water certification) allows you to upgrade to the PADI Advanced Open Water course and a lot more. Your basic scuba certification is enough to open many doors for various scuba courses. You can then explore deeper sites, become a rescue diver and even become a dive professional.

To become a certified PADI diver you need to know how to swim. Basic swimming is just fine! Because you will be made to do a 200 metre swim test. Other than that, being reasonably fit and healthy are the only prerequisites to getting your certification.
