Exploring via Scuba diving

People usually think that scuba is the name of the sport underwater diving. Actually, the term “SCUBA” in itself is the acronym for “Self-Contained Underwater Apparatus” and without this scuba, this whole diving thing is impossible. Scuba diving is a recreation that involves underwater diving and in which the diver is equipped with the Scuba- the apparatus that carries compressed breathing air, and fins attached to the legs of the diver for underwater free movement and propulsion.
Scuba diving is used for all sorts purposes like for commercial, military, research and recreational purposes. What’s more fun than to roam around freely and float and swim like a fish, in the midst and through the shoal of fish; and explore the coral reefs and see the polyps bloomed in yellow, pink, and blue-green or the deep red corals; or see the shark pass inches away from your caged box, underneath the water. In the recent years, people have been getting attracted towards this and to some, it’s their hobby. Though scuba diving is mainly professionally done for research purposes by marine biologists, oceanographers, or underwater archaeologists, video graphers and photographers.
As wonderful as it seems, it requires good swimming skills, utter confidence and concentration, and a good health, especially related to breathing. Though it is a lot of fun to wander through some great hidden wonder lands and coral reefs, dive with the sharks etc., it also is a high-risk recreation that may result in injuries due to pressure changes, or decompression sickness, nitrogen narcosis etc., if proper precaution is not taken. So, have fun! But not at the cost of your life!
