On a PADI course, you'll learn about breathing underwater, go over the kit, such as wets suit, flippers, mask and also the breathing tubes. You'll also learn about the hand signals used underwater and also the buddy-buddy system that is used during most dives. Most lessons will first start off in a pool, after which you'll head out to shallow waters and then further offshore to more deeper waters. You can sign up to a PADI scuba diving course from as young as 10.
