Cairns Scuba Diving
When scuba diving you will discover a whole new world under water, full of life with innumerable species of corals and marine life. By visiting Cairns and The Great Barrier Reef one can experience the most exotic diving experience in the world.
There are many tour and diving companies in Cairns that can book your diving trip. Your travel agencies can also help in booking main land and island accommodation along with various packages of scuba diving. There are PADI certified diving schools that offer diver training courses and dive shops with all the necessary equipment widely available for you to choose from. Keen divers may purchase or hire the equipment required to dive. Compressed air tanks are a must for scuba divers. Fins and facemasks are equally necessary and a snorkel for snorkelling.
Instant training is given to the tourists who want to experience the under water world. Here the diver is taught to move like a fish along with breathing techniques so that he or she can stay under the water to capture all the beauty of the great barrier reef.
If you are keen to learn to scuba dive you can take part in a 1 to 2 day course. Advance certified training facilities are given to those who intend to become professional divers, rescuers and instructors. More comprehensive courses will be also offered over a longer duration.
The reason you require more comprehensive training is for deeper diving depths as you will experience changes in the environmental conditions such as fluctuations in temperature, breathing compressed gas, seeing objects 25% larger and closer than they actually are, cause physiological strain to the human body. However, a healthy human body, with no injury or illness can easily deal with these effects.
One important fact to bear in mind is that consumption of alcohol should be avoided before, after and during diving as there are chances of dehydration. A minimum gap of 12 hours is recommended after a deep dive, before flying high altitudes, this is good to remember if you are flyimg the next day nationally or Internationally from Cairns.
