EC-- This is absolutely not true. The NAUI Scuba Diver (not to be confused with the PADI Scuba Diver -- completely different courses) certification is accepted anywhere in the world. As a former PADI pro and and current NAUI instructor, anyone who tells you that a NAUI card won't be accepted is either a) woefully ignorant or b) lying to you to get your money. NAUI's been around much longer than PADI has.
