Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes.

When we are scuba diving the term “equalising” means to equalise pressure between the inside of your ears and the underwater environment. Human ears have the natural ability to compensate external pressure from the surrounding world and this mostly happens without you even noticing that it happen [...]

Are chemical sunscreens and sun creams really that damaging to the coral reefs? Like most things the answer is not a simple one, but what you should know as a diver is that Oxybenzone and other chemical active ingredients used in nearly all chemical based sun creams, contribute to Coral death and exacerbate the bleaching effect caused by increased water temperature [...]
