The attractions of diving are similar to snorkelling but with breathing apparatus you can dive deeper and stay underwater for longer. Diving means you can explore more of our magnificent marine parks.
As every diver knows, it is a potentially dangerous activity. You need to be trained and medically fit. A range of training courses from novice to advanced and from general to specialised, as well as dive tours, are available from providers who are licensed to operate in some of our marine parks.
Those trained and equipped to dive independently need to know that diving, both scuba (with self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) and with surface supplied breathing apparatus (SSBA or hookah), is subject to regulations available from the Department of Transport.
And all divers should be familiar with all the information on snorkelling.
You can also find more detailed information on dive trails, including those managed by Parks and Wildlife, at the TrailsWA website.
