Did you know...
SCUBA - Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. By the early twentieth century, two basic templates for scuba had emerged; open-circuit scuba where the diver's exhaust is vented directly into the water, and closed-circuit scuba where the diver's unused oxygen is filtered from the carbon dioxide and recirculated.
Wise words...
“...the single most revelatory three minutes was the first time I put on scuba gear and dived on a coral reef.” - David Attenborough

Visibility
January to April are considered the best months for diving. May and June can have unstable weather, and storms and cloudy days are common until September. October and November tend to have clearer weather, but visibility can be slightly reduced because of abundant plankton in the water. December can have rough, windy weather and rain.
