Good websites about SCUBA equipment?

I’m getting my certification soon and before I did I wanted to learn a bit about the equipment and what it does also any websites about scuba diving would be great!
I also have to do a 200m swim and tred water for 10 minutes, I’m a good swimmer but does anyone have any suggestions on how to train for this
Thanks! ūüôā

You’ll learn all the basics re. equipment from your course manual/DVD. Your instructor will advise on what equipment is appropriate/needed for diving in the area where you’ll qualify.

One of the best websites I know for (relatively) unbiased reviews of divegear, tips and techniques, tour operators and dive courses is http://www.divernet.com . Admittedly it tends to be skewed towards the British/European market, but aside from the personal prejudices of its writing staff (all of whom are highly qualified, well-travelled and experienced divers) there is no editorial policy of promotion of any specific agencies, brands, etc.

Re. the swim test: If you are already a competent swimmer and comfortable in the water, no extra training should be needed: the 200 m non-stop swim is 8 lengths of a standard ‘short-course’ pool, which should be within the fitness capabilities of nearly everyone — there is no time limit. The 10-minute tread can also be a ‘float’ — if you know how to float on your back, then you should be able to maintain this position indefinitely with near-zero effort.

How old do you have to be to get your scuba diving license? Does anyone know where you could get one in or near Connecticut?

If you’re old enough to post in Y!A (according to the Y!A Terms & Conditions, anyway), you’re old enough to learn to scuba dive.

Contrary to what ‘Micheal’ said, no agency certifies 8 year olds to dive, as far as I know. PADI does offer a couple of confined-water programs for children aged 8-10 (the ‘Bubblemaker’ experience program, and the ‘SEAL Team’ training program), but both of these programs are restricted to a max. depth of 2 m (6 ft), and neither result in any kind of open-water diving certification.

PADI Instructors may certify students as young as 10 as ‘Junior Scuba Divers’ or ‘Junior Open Water Divers’, provided those students have completed the same theoretical and skillset requirements as the full adult ‘Scuba Diver’ and ‘Open Water Diver’ certs issued to students aged 15+. Also, PADI’s ‘Junior’ certs are hemmed about with additional restrictions on max. dive depth and eligible dive-buddy which (mostly) don’t apply to holders of the ‘adult’ versions. You can find full details of all PADI courses at http://www.padi.com

You can also find details of PADI shops in CT via the PADI website (click on the ‘Find a Dive Shop’ link, and enter your location in the search box). There is also another, non-partisan website which MovieBuff (another Y!A contributor) regularly recommends, but I can’t remember the URL offhand, sorry — you may be able to find it by searching MovieBuff’s previous answers, or through Google

(I just tried the search string "dive shop locator", and got this hit: http://www.free-diving.com/find-a-dive-shop . This wasn’t helpful in itself, but by following a couple of links from this page, I got a list of CT dive shops here: http://www.scuba-newengland.com/DiveCenterList.asp?StateID=CT ).

Hope this helps.

We worked in that Club Med as Diving GO and Photo-Lab (underwater photographer). This is the 3rd version of the video made for weekly entertainment for our GM’s. The 80’s were great years for diving vacations with Club Med. The international team of great GO’s made the experience memorable to all! This film is dedicated to all ours friend GO and GM! Filmed in 1986-87 and put in digital video much later.
