OK -- Swimming does get involved in scuba only is all goes wrong, but--- I really like to be in the water. I have seen coral. fish,plants sharks,currents,boats and even been in some wrecked ships in Aruba. I have recently started a buddy of mine diving & teaching him to swim the required 200 yards of swimming. He said he could swim & it turns out that meant 25 yards! After 4 pool sessions he can make it 50 BUT with a mask,snorkel & short fins he can do 400 yards! I guess that PADI now allows the use of "toys" to get in the requirement.
What are your stories of scuba? Should this get moved to "non swimming" ?

Have not tried scuba yet, but I feel it classifies as swimming.
