("SCUBA" originally being an acronym for self contained underwater breathing apparatus, now widely considered a word in its own right) is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a scuba set to breathe underwater for recreation, commercial or industrial reasons.
Unlike early diving, which relied exclusively on air pumped from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas (usually compressed air),allowing them greater freedom than with an air line. Both surface supplied and scuba diving allow divers to stay underwater significantly longer than with breath-holding techniques as used in snorkelling and free-diving.
Gumbalimba Park in Roatan, Bay Islands is a one-day destination dream. Where else can you play with monkeys and parrots, tour the history of the island, ride a zip-line through the jungle canopy, explore the aquatic life while breathing underwater, kayak the picturesque reef, eat at a pool-side grill, and just hang out in a hammock or lounge chair on the beach!
