Hi Everybody,

There are a number of important facts about scuba diving

1- you need to have a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.

2- you need specific diving apparel to protect your body and allow you to swim easily.

3- the diver must make a decision on what type of underwater adventure would be preferred.


4- If you want to become a serious diver, you will need to know the mental and physical facts about scuba diving before pursuing the sport.


5- Breathing-wise, you need to be able to breath solely through your mouth.

The last of the facts about scuba diving is knowing whether you have any physical conditions that might limit your ability to scuba dive. Such conditions include being overweight, fatigued, having diabetes, heart conditions, or any other ailments, and prone to drowning. It is always a good idea to get a physical done by a doctor before scuba diving.

1). Quote "you need to have a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus"
isnt that an abvious statment ?

3). Quote" the diver must make a decision on what type of underwater adventure would be preferred"
Rubbish, all diving is an adventure, fun and a good sport

4). Quote "If you want to become a serious diver, you will need to know the mental and physical facts about scuba diving before pursuing the sport"
Don't let the words "mental and physical facts" put you off for recreational diving, this applies at all times without you realising, its just making you awars, and its not just if you want to be a serious diver.

5). Quote "Breathing-wise, you need to be able to breath solely through your mouth"
If you know any other way please let us know

5B). Quote "Such conditions include being overweight"
I have to be carfeull about what words i say, but basically RUBBISH! being overweight just makes things that little bit more effort, more beyonat etc and knowing your limitations

5C) Quote "Such conditions include being overweight, fatigued, having diabetes, heart conditions, or any other ailments, and prone to drowning"
Prone to drowning ? how many people do you know that have drowned and want to take up scuba diving ??!!!
Also before and after qualifying you need to get a docotor or physician to sign medical forms anyway if you suffer from any of the above !!
