Why choose PADI diving courses

PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is the world wide association that certifies the diving courses that you will be taught at Into The Blue Scuba Diving Cape Town.

By choosing to do a PADI course, you are assured of a very thorough and well-planned course. PADI keeps the fun in diving, while at the same time also teaching strict safe scuba diving practices.

Currently about 72% of all recreational divers across the world do their diving through PADI – which means that no matter where you go, your PADI certification will always be accepted!
