Is the PADI Open Water Diver Course Hard?

Learning to scuba dive is not as difficult as it may seem. The PADI licence can be completed by people of all ages, but some level of physical fitness is required. Although going below the surface of the water feels unnatural at first, with proper diver training from Abyss or PADI, any average person can do it. Furthermore, once you become a certified open-water diver, you'll feel empowered to embark on a lifetime's worth of diving adventures.

Before you get started with your training, you will be asked to complete a self-assessed medical declaration form. This is important because if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, seek medical advice before diving, as some conditions may prevent you from diving while others may require further clearance (Diving Medical) before being able to dive safely.

So don't let the thought of taking up diving keep you away - it's not as hard as it seems! With some basic knowledge and the proper tuition, anyone can become certified open-water divers and explore the underwater world. So why not take the plunge today? .
