What is the most recognized scuba certification?
A PADI Open Water Diver card is the most recognized scuba certification in the world. With more than 6,600 PADI Dive Centers and Resorts worldwide, it can be hard to choose where to start.
Is PADI or SDI better?
If you’re looking to become professional as a scuba diving instructor you may want to opt for PADI since it is the more well-known of the two. If you want to pursue diving as a career (and not be a dive instructor) then SDI may work better for you, given their connection to TDI.
