Scuba diving is the sport of swimming deep underwater and using self-contained breathing apparatus. Through carrying a container of compressed air, a diver is able to remain underwater much longer than with the natural breath holding methods used in Snorkeling and Free-diving, and is not held back by air-lines to an attached air source. The scuba diver usually swims underwater by using flippers on the feet. A few divers do move around with the assistance of a DPV (Diver Propulsion Vehicle), commonly referred to as a "scooter", or by using surface-tethered devices called sleds pulled by a boat.
