Diving is a sport that can be done by anyone; however, some precautions should be taken. Many people consider diving as an adventure that might carry some risks. Diving requires a certain degree of physical fitness. Diving is also usually practiced in a group. Tourists who do not have experience in diving are given a short training course. The training also includes instruction on the diving equipment and usage. Although diving can be done by anyone, people who suffer from certain diseases like epilepsy, mental illness, diabetes and heart diseases are not advised to exercise diving. Nonetheless, medical examinations are required before any training.
