Frequently Asked Questions

It’s necessary to know how to swim in order to take any diving lesson or course.

No, you should not scuba dive if you have trouble with your breathing or ears. When you scuba dive, you go deep underwater where there is a lot of pressure, and this can make your ears and respiratory system feel uncomfortable. So, before you can scuba dive, you need to get a medical certificate that says you’re healthy enough to dive.
