The idea of scuba diving, to search out for things previously undiscovered is appealing. How do I go about doing this? Is there a course or an age limit that is required?
As long as you're physically able to put on all the equipment and you have no health problems then you you'll probably be able to do a basic course. but if you are underage you will need permission from your parents.
The basic course will enable you to dive to a depth of up to 30 metres. If you want to dive deeper you will have to do special courses and there may be more restrictions on those.
A good way to start off with SCUBA is with the Scuba Breather tankless dive system - www.scubabreather.com
