Scuba Diving for Two: Fascinating Facts

Men and women have practised breath-hold diving for centuries. In ancient Greece, breath-hold divers are known to have hunted for sponges. However, until humans found a way to breathe underwater each dive was necessarily short and frantic. In the 16th century people began to use diving bells supplied with air from the surface, the first effective means of staying under water for any length of time. In 1825 an Englishman, William James, invented the first workable self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) incorporating a cylindrical belt around the diver's trunk that served as an air reservoir. The development of modern fins, mask and snorkel tubes happened in the 1920s and 30s. An American, Guy Gilpatri used a pair of old flying goggles, plugged with putty and painted over whilst his Russian friend, Karamarenko, produced the first rubber mask with a single window. De Corliev in France patented fins in 1929. Then in 1943 Jacques-Yves Cousteau, a French naval lieutenant and Emile Gagnan, an engineer for a Parisian natural gas company redesigned a car regulator to automatically provide compressed air to a diver on the slightest intake of breath. Cousteau tested the unit in the cold Marne River outside Paris and after a modification they patented the Aqua Lung. Today PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is the world's largest recreational diving membership organisation, with more than 4300 dive centres and resorts in more than 175 countries and territories.
