Scuba diving is a type of underwater diving wherein a scuba diver practices using self – contained underwater breathing apparatus (Scuba) to breathe underwater. These scuba divers bring their own source of breathing gas, typically compressed air, providing them greater independence of movement and longer underwater strength than breath hold. Scuba diving may be done recreationally or workwise in a number of applications, including public safety, scientific and military roles, but mostly commercial diving uses surface supplied diving equipment when this is practical.
