 SCUBA DIVING


Scuba diving ( "SCUBA" originally being an acronym for self contained underwater breathing apparatus, now widely considered a word in its own right ) is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a scuba set to breathe underwater.

Unlike early diving, which relied exclusively on air pumped from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas ( usually compressed air ), allowing them greater freedom than with an air line. Both surface supplied and scuba diving allow divers to stay underwater significantly longer than with breath - holding techniques as used in snorkeling and free-diving.

According to the purpose of the dive, a diver usually moves underwater by swim fins attached to the feet, but external propulsion can come from an underwater vehicle, or a sled pulled from the surface.
