Scuba diving is swimming underwater using SCUBA - Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. Using a cylinder of compressed gas to breathe (usually air, but sometimes other gases), scuba divers can stay underwater much longer than would be possible by just holding their breath. With the assistance of equipment such as masks, regulators, BCD’s, fins, wet suits, cylinders and gauges a scuba diver can explore the underwater world. Modern scuba diving is very safe and easy to learn. All basic skills can be learned in as little as 3 or 4 days. During your scuba diving course you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely dive in open water. Once completed, you’ll be free to explore and discover the many wonders of the underwater world.
Why do people scuba dive?
For some it's the beauty of the reef and the marine life that inhabits it, for others it's the thrill of discovery deep inside a wreck or cave - everyone has a different reason for scuba diving, but most would agree that it's for the sheer enjoyment of experiencing the underwater world, a world so far removed from ours that it will truly amaze you. Whether you want to relax while photographing brightly colored tropical fish, be thrilled by the power and grace of a school of sharks, or make a living working underwater, scuba diving has it all.
Who can scuba dive?
The simple answer is - almost anyone. Scuba divers are aged from 10 years and over and come from all walks of life. You need to be in a state of good health. This doesn't mean you need to be super-fit, but you have to be free of any serious medical problems.
Where do people scuba dive?
You can scuba dive anywhere you can find water. Over two-thirds of the planet is covered by water, so you can dive almost anywhere. Tropical coral reefs tend to be most popular amongst recreational divers but there are also many wonderful things to be found in cold water environments such as lakes, rivers, and quarries. Divers can be found in all corners of the globe from the tropical reefs of the Caribbean and the Great Barrier Reef, to the world's biggest lake in Siberia.
