Why Should I Get Certified?
Millions of people all over the world enjoy the activity of SCUBA diving every day! Their world is covered in oceans and underwater environments that are just waiting to be explored. They know less about the bottoms of their oceans than they do about the surface of the moon. Once you become an open water diver, you can start your advanced training and explore wrecks, depths of 100 feet or more, night diving, underwater photography, etc. This is the last unexplored frontier, an opportunity for adventure like none other.
