Scuba Diving is a wonderful sport that offers you the opportunity to see and adventure a whole new world under the water, fulfilling desires our ancestors only hoped they could accomplish.
Whether you are swimming in tropical waters, examining and exploring shipwrecks, or exploring ocean life in colder waters, scuba diving is a passport to an underwater wonderland.
Scuba diving is primarily a recreational sport, with many industrial or practical applications, such as rescue divers. When it was developed in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s the goal was to create potential military applications.
When the dream of individual underwater exploration came true, it was impossible to keep it from spreading into recreational areas. Within a few generations, millions of people are now scuba enthusiasts.
What is scuba?
The term tends to refer to the entire process of an assisted-breathing underwater dive. But it is actually derived from the acronym S.C.U.B.A., referring to the equipment used: self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.
There are two main types of scuba devices. Re-breathers are the ones that re-filter and reuse unused oxygen. Open-circuit gear allows the diver to exhale outside of the system and does not re-filter exhaled breath.
Scuba Diving Certification
Scuba differs from many other water sports in that training is absolutely required to engage in safely. Even if a person finds a pro that is willing to take them on a dive without certification, the risks of doing so are immense.
Once underwater it becomes very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to communicate with other members of the team. As a result, every scuba diver needs to be trained to handle the most common emergencies and conditions that may occur.
Each diver unspoken primary goal is to make it out of the water in the same physical condition that they entered it. Scuba Guru focuses on two goals. First, safety. Teaching divers how to safely engage in the basics of scuba or deal with more challenging scenarios as they progress. Second, fun. Loving water and scuba diving. Is exciting to teach new people so that they can explore the mysteries that the water has to offer.
