Welcome to Al's SCUBA Diving Page

I love this sport so I would rather dive than hack on my computer...so please be patient

What I have so far are my resources that I use to prepare for a SCUBA (consolidated here)

Thought it might be a good idea to share them with my fellow web surfer

Enjoy!  And visit rest of the site...lots of info

Before You Dive

You must be in good health- physically, mentally and financially.   See your doctor if you're stuffed up and if you have enough cash for a trip or two, diving should take care of the mental problems if you don't have a clinical condition.   Yes, scuba diving is so relaxing.  I forget all the "bad" things and focus on what I'm doing and on the beautiful sights and activities around me during the dive.

If you don't dive now, you should consider it.  Here's how.

Get certified through one of these certifying bodies (TRAINING and Updates are VERY important- so you don't get hurt).  The most dangerous thing that can hurt you underwater is YOU if you are untrained.

You can find Dive Shops that are associated with these organization (I would make sure they are).  Once you find one in your area, ask the customers about the services the shops provide.  Go to several of them and pick out the one that has the most complete facility (training and instructors).  A good dive shop are very interested in the safety of their divers (it's the customer base- no good if they hurt them).  Some dive shops care more about selling their products- so don't go there.   The indicator is client care...clients will buy their products.

If you're a new diver or want info, visit NEW DIVER Online

Equipment

Good reliable equipment is essential.  Go with "cheap QUALITY" equipment and you will be risking your life.  Make sure that all your equipment is serviced regularly or at least before you dive if you haven't gone for a while.  Much of the equipment info can be found rated in the magazines listed below.

Subscribe to SCUBA DIVING magazines to keep you updated.
