You got to be fit, like the sound of underwater

You have to be fit and steady in the head to stay relaxed, never hold your breath, exhale fully, regulate your sinuses, plus there's a lot of safety precautions you need to take in diving because it could be life or death down there.

If you've taken swimming, lifesaving and other watersport training, some of this will be familiar. If you haven't you should know it's not all fun and games it's actually work.

These are the skills you're going to learn. The sound in this video is what it's really like to be underneath the water.
