Skin diving is snorkeling while making breath-hold dives to observe aquatic life, up close and personal. The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you how to enjoy watching life below the surface and comfortably venture underwater for short visits, whether you dive in a local freshwater lake or the big blue ocean.
To enroll in a PADI Skin Diver or Snorkeling course , you must be at least 8 years old. You'll need adequate swimming skills and comfort in the water. No prior experience is required.
