DEFINATELY NOT!!!! The largest pressure change is between 30 feet and the surface, You could give the Baby decompression sickness without showing symptoms yourself !!!

You shouldn't scuba dive during pregnancy, the safety issue really hasn't been ruled out, but I wouldn't risk it. On the health waiver form, it asks if you are currently pregnant or trying to become pregnant, if maked with a "yes". They will not allow you to dive. I'm guessing it's not a good idea. If you are a regular diver it probably won't do any harm but it is not something to do for the first time.

This really depends on what you are doing as a scuba diver. It varies how much a scuba instructor makes. This depends on if he/she started the business, if he/she is actually trying to make a profit, or if it is just a hobby, and several other variables. So the actual salary of a scuba diver is a hard to answer question.

Like the old joke goes: "the only way to make a small fortune in scuba diving is to start with a large fortune." Lots of people earn a living with scuba diving, but very few become rich.

Either, depending on context. Usually, if used as a noun it is SCUBA; as an adjective, as in scuba diver, it is just scuba.

No. Scuba diving in dangerous, there is no way of doing it without an experieced diver giving you extensive training. Trying to dive without training is just an expensive way of killing yourself.

It has changed in many ways, from crude equipment to allow a person to breathe underwater in very shallow depths to modern equipment which allows a diver to reach great depths, relatively speaking. Go to the Related Link to read about the History of scuba:

No, but "scuba-diving" is a verb.

To learn to scuba dive you need to go a scuba diving course.

'SCUBA' is a noun, referring to the breathing apparatus. 'SCUBA dive' is the verb, with 'SCUBA dived' as the past-tense form.

I went scuba diving. I am going to go scuba diving. I want to go scuba diving. You say it like you would surfing, or skiing. you add -ing to dive to get diving. ex. I scuba dove the reefs. I want to scuba dive tomorrow. I went scuba diving this summer. ! !

Many scuba stores sell scuba diving cameras. Check a scuba gear stores in your area. This will allow you to compare cameras and get advise from fellow scuba divers.

You should always start out teaching basic water skills in shallow water, 3ft. or so. Scuba rule of thumb is water shallow enough to stand in. Start there and build up to deeper water.

It's an acronym: Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus = SCUBA (not scuba)

SCUBA stands for: self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.

Scuba was invented by the navy.

There are scuba diving classes and popular scuba diving areas in Sydney, Australia. Scuba diving clubs are not advertised in that area.

Many dive shops offer a two day program for the classroom and pool sessions, followed by a four dives done over two additional days. So the short answer is that you can become a certified scuba diver in four (sometimes less) days. How many years does it take to become a GOOD scuba diver, I'll leave for someone else to answer. Like anything, a good teacher and plenty of practice can bring you safely to that goal.

SCUBA. It is an acronym and not normally translated. I know SCUBA is used in both Spain and Mexico.

Scuba diving equipment can be found at local scuba diving shop or alternatively at one of the scuba shops on the internet. Some internet sites are Joe Diver America and Scuba Gear Canada.
