Diving underwater is something that has attracted mankind since they figured out that there was a living world under the seas. SCUBA is an abbreviation for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus, in other words, equipment to allow us to breathe underwater. For recreational divers, the depth limit is between 30 and 40 metres (equating to 100 to 133 feet). If you want to go deeper, special training or a specially trained buddy is required.
People of almost all ages can practice this sport, but before you can dive,you must first learn to dive. Learning to scuba dive is like driver training. During the course, you not only gain knowledge you also need to learn how to handle the scuba equipment.
