What is Scuba Diving?

Scuba stands for "self contained underwater breathing apparatus." This refers to the regulator, air cylinder, and other equipment that allows a diver to breathe underwater. Its simplicity and dependability make it the system of choice for recreational divers.

Scuba diving allows you to stay underwater for extended periods of time. Because you aren't in a rush to get back to the surface, you'll be able to relax as you closely examine tiny creatures living on a reef or gaze out on a school of fish swimming overhead.

Divers enjoy the sport for various reasons. Most are interested in viewing marine life in their natural environment. Others are interested in exploring underwater wrecks or caves. However, no matter what the objective of the dive is, all divers enjoy the opportunity to explore a whole new world.
