Diving has never been considered to be a very dangerous pastime, but nevertheless this way of recreation demands special attention to the diver’s health. That’s why in all the civilized countries it is recommended (in some of them it is even required by law) to insure life and health of the beginners as well as experienced divers, not depending on their skill level and the number of dives.
Diving is always risky. You can experience caisson illness or some other trouble and saving a diver’s life in a decompression chamber is an expensive and difficult procedure, and that’s the reason why every diver needs insurance.
If you want to swim under water – make an insurance

- try to emerge as slowly as possible even when the diving depth is not that deep;
- drink at least 3 liters of liquids every day during the period of scuba diving practice;
