Thinking about learning to dive? Then you're close to opening up the doors to a whole new world of fun and adventure. Dive The World can be your passport to a lifetime of amazing underwater experiences. Take your steps up the scuba qualification ladder with the No. 1 authority in the world of diving.

You'll get a clear idea of which class to take by reading the details on the full range of PADI recreational dive and snorkelling courses below. Dive The World is not affiliated with PADI, or SSI, or CMAS or any other training agency; we simply want to find the right course provider for you. Most people know the PADI name and we can help you locate the best PADI-affiliated dive center. If you prefer to get certified with another scuba training agency, let us know.

Learning to dive the PADI way

We offer instruction courses and programmes at a 5 Star Dive Centre in Phuket - Thailand, as well as throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, Egypt/Red Sea, Fiji, Belize and the Maldives.

If you would like to try diving before committing yourself to a full course, you could sign up for the Discover Scuba Diving programme which will introduce you to the fascinating marine world. Or take the plunge and earn your diving license. In only a few short, fun-filled days you could add another string to your bow and obtain that PADI certification you always dreamt about.

Or perhaps you already have a dive certification and want to take that next step up the ladder. Experience new adventures with the advanced course, or become a much more assured diver with the rescue programme. One thing is sure, the more you learn, the more you can relax and enjoy yourself underwater! Next time you go on a dive vacation you, like thousands of Dive The World students, can produce your new card with pride.

On your voyage of discovery, let us guide you to safe waters ...
