Is learning to scuba dive expensive?
For beginners, it costs around $70 to $200 to do a single introductory dive with a guide and between $200 and $600 or more to do an open water diving course with a scuba instructor. Online courses are available to begin your scuba diving certification journey at your own pace and range from $0 to $200.
Is getting scuba certified worth it?
While you can go out and scuba dive without certification, it can be a death sentence. Most people who are certified will tell you not to go out without at least some knowledge of how to dive properly, how to resurface, how to communicate, etc.
How long does it take to get scuba certified?
It’s possible to complete your confined and open water dives in three or four days by completing the knowledge development portion via PADI eLearning, or other home study options offered by your local dive shop or resort.
