How old do I have to be to scuba dive?
Anyone aged 10 and older (there are options for ages 8-10 as well), with a reasonable level of physical fitness, comfortable in the water with a basic knowledge of swimming can scuba dive.

How long does it take to become a certified diver?
PADI courses are performance based, which means that you earn your certification when you demonstrate that you’ve mastered the required skills and knowledge. Some learn faster than others and hence course duration varies. The PADI Open Water Diver course can be completed in as little as three days or can take up to a week.
How old do I have to be to become a certified diver?
You must be at least 10 years old to receive a Junior Open Water Diver Certification. 10 and 11 year old Junior Open Water Divers must dive with a certified parent, guardian or PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet. 12 to 14 year olds must dive with a certified adult. At age 15, the junior certification upgrades to a regular Open Water Diver certification.
Is scuba diving dangerous and what are the safety measures taken?

Is there a DON’T checklist I have to follow?
Never drink and dive – Intoxication can put a diver in a compromised position. One being the inability to use common sense, and make rational judgments, especially when it involves safety. Don’t eat a big meal before making your dive – You should wait at least two hours after eating before you make your dive. Diving on a full belly can put you in a dangerous situation.
