Skin diving is like snorkeling, except that, to observe aquatic life more closely, you dive in apnea.
It’s a great way to explore the underwater world in case you can’t dive or scuba diving isn’t your thing.
Whether you are in a freshwater lake, in the ocean, at home or in one of the diving vacation destinations, the PADI Skin Diver course teaches you to enjoy the underwater life and dive for short visits.
