Complete a diving course before you throw yourself into the deep!

If an idea just came to your mind: diving, then first thing you should do with it is to sign up for a diving course (certainly do not start by purchasing equipment!), or even sign up for a first small training that will not give you a diving degree but will teach you the basic rules – you should do it just to check (in safe conditions) if learning how to dive is fun for you, because that is essential!

Through participation in diving course you will meet people with similar interest in underwater travel, you will learn how to operate the equipment, accessories and you will find out how to behave under water. If you want to learn this sport then it is not enough to read about it on the Internet, although of course reading will not hurt anyone!

Diving School and Dive Center – what is the difference?

In Poland diving schools usually have their main office at dive centers, but this is not always the rule. A dive center can operate independently from the school and offer only equipment rental and securing of the basin. Both diving school and dive center bring together people with knowledge and experience in diving in different types of waters. When being in such places, you get to know the environment and the whole industry – you can easily gain valuable information about the equipment as well as about places to visit and the conditions there. The dive center is a source of knowledge.

Do you have to finish a diving school to practice diving tourism?

Finishing a basic diving course is necessary to be able to dive in our country and abroad. The law in Poland does not specify what kind of certificates should a diver have, but diving is prohibited without any confirmation of your diving skills. In Croatia, for example, dive sites are strictly guarded and designated, you can not dive just anywhere, because diving on your own, without any preparation can be dangerous. In Europe there is one certification system that grants confirmation of a completed dive course. Without that kind of confirmation your diving tourism can end with a big fine or sometimes even worse kind of punishment (if, for example, you will violate a protected underwater site).
