Is the equipment difficult to learn how to use?
The bulky scuba gear worn by many divers may seem intimidating, but learning to use it is straightforward. If you’have snorkeled, you’re already familiar with the mask, snorkel and fins. The scuba unit consists of an air cylinder containing compressed breathing gas, buoyancy compensator (BC) jacket to help you float on the surface and maintain your desired depth underwater, and a regulator for you to breathe through. The exposure protection keeps you warm when diving in cool-water environments.
