    Great information. I think a lot of people don’t know how much scuba diving puts a toll on your body. I know I am not familiar with all that you need to know before you go. I considered it once on a vacation but I kept hearing these things about air bubbles in the system that could go to your brain and I said well that counts me out. Mainly because I had no idea what to do to prevent it from happening. Thanks for the information. Maybe I will look a little bit more into it and give it a try sooner or later.

      Hi Ronnie and thanks for stopping by. Yes, the air bubbles thing is called DCS (Decompression Sickness) and it happens when u have been down deep and come up to fast, basically. Most recreational dive places don’t go that deep or stay down long enough to get DCS so u should give it a try next time. I wish u well and hope to see u in the water soon. 🙂

    Great info Carl. I’ve got a minor anxiety to water and drowning and want to use scuba to overcome this fear.
    Is there a certain type of level 1 dive I should do to get my confidence up?

      Hi Vince. The best thing I can suggest is to get a dive mask and snorkel and practice in the bath, yes the bath, lol, at first until u are comfortable with breathing through a snorkel. Then move to a pool if you can and practice there in the shallow end. Then if that does help with your anxiety, then go for some basic scuba training. The last thing u want to be before a dive is to be full of anxiety. This can lead to a serious complication under the water. Hope this help u some.
