Scuba Diving, Lessons, and Everything In Between

The term SCUBA is an acronym that stands for Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. This is a device that helps contain your breathing so that you can travel down deep into the water. It is like an extension of a snorkeling mask but a far more advanced concept. This is often used during a popular vacation activity: scuba diving lessons.

Nearly 71% of the Earth is covered by water. Water is also a big part of our makeup for our physical body. People love water and it has been this way for an extended period of time. Even before scuba diving lessons took place, man has traveled across water far and wide on boats.

The deepest point on Earth is known as the Marianas Trench in the Pacific Ocean. This point has a depth of 11 kilometers.
