Scuba diving is often seen as something that other people do, but the reality is that it is an accessible sport and leisure activity.
Even if you live in a cold climate far away from any diving resorts, you can easily fit a PADI diving course into any summer holiday, all you need is five days to complete the course if you take two lessons a day.
On these pages, you will find a number of diving related articles which deal with everything to do with diving, whether it is theory, practice, destinations or types of dives that you can do.
For those who do not want to dive in the sea, there is also the option of fresh water dives, even in icy conditions. There is dive gear to cope with any type of dive by using a wet suit, a semi-dry suit or a dry suit, which is a bit different to normal scuba diving.
You will also find resources that offer information about the different pieces of equipment that you will need on a dive, as well as information about safety stops, decompression times and tips and tricks that will help you master scuba.
As with everything, practice makes perfect and while you will find a plethora of information here, the best way to learn about scuba is to take the plunge and do it yourself. For those who are still unsure, all diving resorts and schools offer a try dive, which takes place at very shallow depths to allow you to test the waters.
