About Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving is an underwater activity where the diver uses an underwater breathing apparatus called SCUBA to breathe underwater and explore the ocean bed, corals and aquatic flora and fauna. Scuba diving is different from other modes of diving where the diver carries the source of oxygen along with him, in our case, along with the certified diver diving with you. This is safer than having you jump into the sea with an air pipe and having the oxygen source in the boat. Here, your life is safe in the hands of our experienced diver. A scuba diver moves underwater by wearing a fin apparatus. Wearing these fins can be avoided if you're not experienced and are diving with an experienced guide.
