I have never been scuba diving in my life – let alone on live TV! But a couple weeks ago, I got my chance to do it at the Erie County Fair.
Instructors with “Go Dive Now” travel around the country, on a mission to promote scuba diving for people of all ages.
I got to wear a specialized dive mask with a built-in microphone so I could talk underwater, and you could watch me through a monitor!
The gear I wore only weighed 40 pounds but underwater it felt much lighter, and only felt like a couple pounds. Pretty cool experience!
