Do I need to know how to swim to scuba dive?
If you’ve thought about this, you’re certainly not alone. For safety reasons, there are some minimum swimming requirements. You will need to complete a 200 metre swim – this can be any stroke and isn’t timed, so you can take your time. You’ll also need to float for ten minutes – you can do this laying on your back or by treading water. Finally, you’ll complete some basic snorkelling skills. The most important thing is your level of comfort in the water. The more comfortable you are the more enjoyable your dives will be, so if you’re not there yet, taking a couple of swimming lessons or classes may help improve your skills and confidence ahead of your course.
