  • You should already have your scuba certification card and your own scuba gear. The next step is to get submerged. Training and certification is essential for scuba divers.

    Carrying a scuba certification card from a recognized scuba association assures others you have been trained to dive safely and responsibly.

    A full-service dive shop will require you to show your scuba certification card before arranging a chartered diving excursion. It’s because they should be concerned for your safety, but also because on any dive in a group, large or small, dragging along a novice who can not keep their mask on properly is highly annoying, possibly dangerous and can easily ruin the experience for everyone.

    Dive shops also require a certification before they will rent you any equipment. Scuba equipment can be damaged if it isn’t used and handled properly, and it is in their best interest to make sure you return the equipment in good condition.

    Scuba diving gear is what makes scuba diving possible. A diver needs to know all about scuba diving gearand understand how it works in order to feel confident underwater. Part of scuba diving certification training will be devoted to learning all about scuba diving gear, how to assemble it and how to use it safely and responsibly.

    Unfortunately, many scuba diving certification courses do not spend much time explaining how the gear works and most importantly how to choose the right scuba diving gear. This guide will help you find and choose the scuba diving gear that is best for you.

    Scuba diving is not a solitary sport; you will need a buddy on every dive. If you don’t have a regular diving buddy, with whom you do all your diving, you will at least want to get to know other scuba divers you can go underwater with. Many diving communities have a “buddy board” where you can find like-minded scuba diving enthusiasts.

    For many scuba divers who live in colder climates, scuba is a purely vacation sport. For those able to travel, we have made a list of the most amazing dive destinations in the world. Write the list, with permanent magic marker, on the bottom of your swim fins and cross each one off as you dive them! Now you completely learn to scuba diving vacations.

    In this page you will find tips for planning your dive, choosing a dive shop, renting gear and scuba tanks and much more, for learn to scuba diving vacations.
