SCUBA stands for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus and SCUBA Diving is a form of underwater diving where you take the air you need with you rather than relying on an air supply from the surface. This normally means that you carry the air you need in a cylinder and a special regulator allows you to breath it for longer time. Scuba diving offers people the opportunity to see what life is like below the water in oceans.

Snorkeling or snorkelling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually swimfins. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.
