Learning to Dive

Your first dive: that revelatory moment when you realise that the impossible is possible; the sheer thrill of witnessing a parallel universe beneath the waves of colourful coral cities and equally enthralling marine life.

There's nothing quite like strapping a tank to your back and blowing bubbles in the deep blue. And with over 71% of the earth's surface covered by water, there are endless opportunities to experience something new, whether that's exploring the wonderful world of macro diving or gaining your advanced qualifications and setting sail to dive the world's most remote sites by liveaboard; each new dive reveals another of the ocean's secrets. But rather than take our word for it, delve fin first into the deep blue and see for yourself in some of the world's most beautiful subaquatic schools. Read our 'Learn To Dive' guide for the nitty gritty on what to expect on your PADI open water course, advanced and beyond, while below see some of the world's best destinations for learning to dive.
