Can scuba diving be dangerous?

Dangerous, yes and no. But do not get scared or be turned off. It is a yes if it is not done properly or recklessly and without prior training. The same could be said for driving cars and many other potentially dangerous things we do in daily life. But no it is not dangerous with proper training and by following simple rules scuba diving can be safely enjoyed by pretty much everyone. Even kids can take part in scuba diving activities.
