SCUBA DIVING IS A DANGEROUS SPORT! Until you have gone through diver training, you’ll not be aware of the risks and dangers that exist. Even qualified divers have died scuba diving, and some with years of experience and thousands of dives under their belt. If you value your life and you’re considering scuba diving without certification; don’t. Just don’t do it. Especially if you have a family. The risks are huge to those that don’t know what they are doing. But all of the risks and dangers associated with scuba diving are minimised through proper training and experience.
