I was recently in Florida and I went snorkeling. The boat that I was on had about 5 people out of the 20 scuba diving. While snorkeling, I could hold my breath long enough to get down until the pressure got to me. It was beautiful. I live in New York and I am very interested in scuba diving. Can I have some information on Scuba Diving (certifications, equipment, places to go, etc.) please? 🙂

I’ve only done this once before, but if you want to try it before you get certified, most scuba/snorkel companies will offer some sort of a beginner dive once they teach you the basics. You don’t need a license for this. If fact, you need to do this in order to get certified anyway. They provide the equipment if your doing this.

I went scuba diving in St. Barths, and what a view that was. Anywhere in the Carribian is great. If you have the money, go for it.

They teach you to breath in a consistent pattern (basically to not stop breathing), what some basic hand signals mean, how to fill and release air in your air vest (don’t know the exact name), and how to make yourself pressurized to the depth you go to. They also tell you what everything is for and such.

I know i’m missing some little stuff but this is what you would expect to start scuba diving.

Have Fun
