Answer #2

The first part of the question is easy. You can get a “scuba diver 1” certificate from Padi with 5 dives, 2 of which are “exploration dives” and 3 skills dives. This, along with 3 quizes at an 80% score or higher, gets you a certificate that allows you to scuba with an instructor and know the basics.

The open water certificate is 9 dives, and 5 quizes, and allows you to go without an instructor as long as you have a buddy…my wife and I just completed our ‘scuba 1’ last week :) The first three dives were scary, but it got a lot easier the next day, when we did two dives and was really fun.
