What is the difference between Freediving and Scuba Diving?
Freediving, as the name suggests, is diving with complete freedom. A properly trained freediver can ascend and descend as quickly as they like since there are no restrictions. In freediving, all you really need is a mask, fins and a single breath for you to go anytime, anywhere, underwater. On the other hand, scuba has a lot of complex theory and equipment elements you must know about before you can enjoy it. In scuba diving, you must follow a rigorous schedule to go up and down due to the heavy, cumbersome tank you are restricted in how fast you can move and where you can go. This is the main difference between the two.
