Imagine descending below the surface of a clear mountain lake to explore a well-preserved wreck. Interested? Any time you scuba dive at an altitude higher than 300 metres/1000 feet above sea level, you’re altitude diving.

-How to avoid problems and handle emergency situations, if they occur, at altitude
