It renews your senses and provides an incredible sense of freedom, so where better to learn or practice than in the lengthy sunny shores and deep lakes of Bulgaria?

Scuba diving is unique in as much as the swimmer is able to stay under water for prolonged periods of time, unhindered by air lines to a remote air source, as the divers carry a canister of compressed air.
