Diving Certification

Recommended Posts

Morning-

 

Can anyone clue me in on the steps to become SCUBA certified? I have a buddy in the states that says it would be smarter and more fun to get certified in Oz, rather than here in Seattle. Just wondering the steps necessary to do it over there and the costs involved.

 

Thanks all.

Look for somewhere that's a proper PADI centre and go for it. I learnt in Merimbula NSW, and they were great :)


Jo (Aussie), Jon (Pom on a 100 visa), Satch (the gorgeous viscous labrador) have now been joined by Siena Rose.

Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?
