Scuba Diving is diving underwater by using self-contained underwater breathing apparatus. In this, we should use special equipment to breathe underwater and maintain our self-control. This is the best way to explore deep-sea unreachable sights.
Snorkeling is swimming in the water by using a breathing tube. This is an easy way to see shallow sea corals, fishes and sea plants. When Snorkeling, We use masks (or goggles), a snorkel(breathing tube) and swim fins (or flippers). Newcomers can use life jackets for a comfortable journey.

When Scuba diving and snorkeling, the main thing is sea visibility because without a clear sea, we can not see anything transparently, so we have to plan our trip considering the location’s rainfall, season, and temperature. As well, if you can book morning time for your dive, that is the perfect time to get an unforgettable dive experience in your life.

Before diving, you should be ready and practice to gain real experience.

01 Use a diving head cover or Hair band for long hair
Long hair will leak your mask because the mask opens with your hair, then air and water will go into the mask, so you have to hold hair by using a hairband or diving headcover.
02 Cut or reduce the upper beard
When diving, one crucial thing is to keep your mask, but the mask opens with your sizable upper beard and will leak your mask, then air and water will leak into the mask, so you have to cut or reduce your beard.
03 Remember to breathe from your mouth without a nose Under the sea
You have to breathe only from your mouth with an air regulator because you should remember that.
04 Practise Air control
When you dive to the bottom of the ocean, you have to maintain your air pressure balance. Otherwise, your ears and brain will be severely stressed and in pain. At that point, your mouth and the nose should be tightly closed and the pressure released from both ears. Then your internal temperature equals with external temperature and reduces your pain.
