Many people ask about getting their "PADI" to go scuba diving, and they ask this because of some very successful marketing. The purpose of adding this information is not to say which training agency or facility is superior or inferior to an other, but more to open up the idea that there exist a number of options (ANDI, BSAC, CMAS, GUE, IANTD, NAUI, PADI, SDI, SSI, TDI - to name a few).
When we are "learning to dive", or developing or skills further, there are many things to consider: choosing an instructor, insurance cover, course materials (physical, digital, online, offine), equipment, the practical and theoretical components (preparation, planning, confined water, open water, debriefing, equipment maintenance, etc), evaluation, certification and international acceptance.
KangaruPeru is a small privately owned and operated Dive School which is based in San Isidro (Lima). Most of the open water diving is done from Pucusana Island.
KangaruPeru offer training and development in: first aid (FRTI, DAN, EFR), freediving (PFI), recreational (SDI and PADI) and technical (TDI) diving.
The facts that the water is cold, has low visibility, with conditions often changing, Pucusana makes for a great training location. Some say "if you can learn to dive in Pucusana, you will be prepared to dive in most places".
