Do you want to dive with me in Bonaire in deluxe style? Here’s your chance!

In this week’s Mouthpiece Monday, we’re exploring the relationship between different scuba certification agencies and what pitfalls to look out for. I wanted to define what it means for your scuba diving certification to be ‘Internationally recognized’ and what issues you may face if it isn’t.

There are so many different scuba training agencies out there… PADI, SDI, SSI, NAUI, RAID, IANTD… etc etc 160 according to Wikipedia at time of publishing, with more created every year? Does it even matter who’s dive course you do?
