Scuba Diving in Fort Stewart, Georgia

by Sharon Harleigh

Scuba diving is a fun outdoor that demands strength, stamina, skill and confidence. Scuba diving requires a diver to plummet deep below the surface of the ocean, creating tremendous opportunities for viewing ocean life. Certification is required, however, before a diver is allowed to scuba dive and proper equipment is a must. Although there is no scuba diving directly in Fort Stewart, there are many diving options located nearby for avid divers and new divers alike.
