Types of Scuba Diving

You can dive in temperate waters or tropical waters; you'll get a different experience in each situation. In temperate waters, the life below the water's surface is just as interesting, though it isn't as colorful. Visibility and surface conditions are not always good in temperate waters, which make exposure suits and fitness extremely important. Tropical waters, by contrast, are more relaxing. Tides and currents are usually mild, and the sea is calm. While shipwrecks are the most popular temperate water destination, those who dive in tropical waters are often looking for the opportunity to view local sea life.
There are several different ways to dive. You can choose to dive from a day boat, in which you enter the water by forward roll or long stride entry. Those diving from day boats should be prepared and able to handle strong currents.
Live-aboard diving allows divers to reach remote offshore reefs and wrecks. There are no long swims and there is less carrying of heavy equipment. There are fewer restrictions on live-aboards, and while they appear to be more expensive, you get more dives for your money, plus food. Live-aboards offer up to five dives per day, tides and currents permitting. Explorer Ventures offers live-aboard diving adventures; Aqua Cat Cruises and the Sand Dollar dive boat operate in the Bahamas and California, respectively.
