INTRODUCTION TO DIVING #2. SCUBA DIVING
Scuba diving is a type of underwater diving carried out in multiple spots, the most popular in tropical locations with beautiful corals and animals. The diver uses a designated set of gears to descend to greater depths, including breathing apparatus, weights, fins and buoyancy control devices. Scuba divers could descend down to 30m, therefore it is necessary to wear a wetsuit to protect them from the cold.
Unlike snorkelling, you need a license issued by recognized institutions to go on scuba diving. In most areas, the youngest age to start scuba diving is 10 years old. Despite being more demanding and technical in nature, the rewards are great. You can stay up to an hour underwater and see different sights than on the surface, such as wrecks, underwater landscapes or larger marine animals such as sharks and whales!
