Scuba diving as an extreme sport

An extreme sport to try out

Scuba diving is a hugely popular sport which sees you exploring the underwater depths in order to see the interesting marine life, reefs, shipwrecks and whatever else takes your fancy. It will take you a few scuba diving sessions to get used to wearing the cylinder and breathing apparatus, but after that a whole new world will open up to you!

Who is scuba diving suitable for?

Anyone over 12 can learn to scuba dive. The usual place to start would be in a swimming pool where you can get familiar with the apparatus and work towards a basic diving qualification. You can also learn by taking a course when you’re somewhere far more exotic, perhaps while on your travels.

Risk factors of scuba diving

Scuba diving is not a particularly dangerous sport. Modern diving equipment is easy to use and very reliable, and with the proper training and a responsible attitude, scuba diving can be enjoyed safely. Pretty much all scuba diving injuries and casualties are the result of recklessness or bad judgment!
