Looking for some scuba diving information? You have come to the right place because we have lots for you!
There is alot of information to digest when you are starting out scuba diving - or are thinking about giving it a try. So to help make it a bit more manageable, we have divided the information into two sections:
Part One: This is for the person who has never dove before and is thinking about taking up diving and
Part Two: This is for the new diver and/or the diver that needs a refresher (after a prolonged period away from diving, it is always good to get back to the basics).
If you are thinking about taking dive classes and getting your dive certification - welcome to the club. It is a wonderful sport that will open up a whole new world for you.
If you do decide to take the plunge, I don't think you will regret it.
We have lots of information on this site to help you get acquainted with the sport and help you make informed decisions about starting a dive career. You should find the following pages helpful in making your decision about whether to dive or not:
