 Diving is diving and swimming underwater in a special suit with special equipment. Thanks to such equipment, it is possible to be under water for up to 12 hours or more! Of course, it all depends on the purpose of the dive.

 During diving, you can carefully explore the seabed, admire the underwater flora and fauna, look into the caves. It is especially interesting to dive in those places where there are ancient cities and artifacts of past civilizations. In general, diving opens up amazing opportunities for people not only to explore the underwater world, but also to learn how to interact with it. This can be both entertainment and active pastime, as well as a type of occupation for people of certain professions.
Those who are engaged in diving are called divers. Scuba diving puts forward certain requirements for a person: for health reasons and age.

When did dive appear?

 The first divers are mentioned by Herodotus in his texts. It is believed that the "birth" of diving occurred in 1943. Jacques Yves Cousteau, a world-famous scientist and researcher of the underwater kingdom, together with his colleague did the incredible - he developed the world's first scuba gear. Thanks to these two talented people, relatively comfortable immersion under water for a long time became available. It turned out to be so successful that it quickly gained popularity. In the same year, the first club of divers was already founded.

 Five years passed and Jacques Cousteau demonstrated in the USA. A huge number of scuba diving fans have appeared in America.

 In 1953, a French scientist published an article on underwater archeology in the journal National Geographic. The material turned out to be so interesting and fascinating that the number of divers grew rapidly. The USA and France are a source of mass deliveries to different countries of the world.

What types of diving distinguish?

We are already considering types of divers. As for the types of diving, its classification in this case also depends on the tasks, as well as on the level and degree of preparedness of the diver.

So, there are four types of diving:

Recreational: scuba diving, attracting those who just want to have fun. In many countries of the world there are schools that teach. Some schools even receive certificates of completion.
Technical: Requires serious training and great physical stamina from a diver. This species involves diving under water to study sunken objects. Often technical divers have to dive to great depths, and in some cases even under the ice.
Sports: Participate in various competitions to demonstrate their skills. This type of diving combines different disciplines.
Professional: Professional knowledge and skills can be associated with underwater shooting, studying or training future divers.
Of course, it is better to start with the development of amateur diving.
