I only have a Junior Open Water from about 3 years ago, but I did alot of reading up about it earlier this year, when I was hoping to join my local club. But sadly, because the membership person didn't reply to my email, I lost interest and started Mountain Biking instead!:racer: (Sorry, Closest I could find:tongue
Would love to get back into it, but lack of equipment, money (at the moment as I used it all on my bike) and someone to dive with, says otherwise.:sad2:
Yes mate it can be! Best way is to do an Open Water Divers Course ( that is the qualification by PADI) and meet some people to go diving with, you can usually rent all the equipment from your local diving store.
That dive course is the basic one but means your legally able to dive, you do 4 dives and a pool dive and some lessons and that. Is good fun You need some mates to do with you so you have people to dive with though. Make sure they are sensible or know the time an place as diving with an idiot would not be a good idea. ;-) sure you would know that.
