Welcome to WikiProject Underwater diving. This is a collaboration of Wikipedians dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of underwater diving in all modes and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, you are welcome to join the project, or just work on any related articles. The talk page is a place to discuss the project, and to notify page watchers of anything which may affect the project and its work. The to-do list below lists some of the work still to be done.

The project was originally called WikiProject Scuba diving, but the scope has expanded to be inclusive of all modes of underwater diving, so we changed the name to be more welcoming to other modes of diver.

WikiProject Underwater diving does not have many active members, and this page is not updated very often, but there are a few members plugging away at improving and creating articles, so if you are interested, go ahead and do it. Join the project if you like. If you want assistance, or have some useful comments or requests, particularly about errors or content which you think we should add, leave a message on the project talk page.

If you came here looking for an overview of the Wikipedia coverage of underwater diving topics, including scuba, surface supplied and freediving, try one of the portals linked from the portal bar below.

For travel guides to recreational dive sites of the world, try the Wikivoyage articles on scuba diving


Improve Wikipedia's coverage on Underwater diving articles, including Scuba diving, surface-supplied diving, freediving, snorkelling and related topics:

  • Get all project articles with Top or High importance rating up to Good Article class.
  • Cover the entire scope of the project with useful articles.
  • Provide navigational aids so that readers can find the article they need.
  • Provide short descriptions for all underwater diving articles

Short descriptions progress[edit]

Out of 927 eligible articles in the Category:WikiProject SCUBA articles, 688 have a short description template.

688 / 927 (74%)


Finding content[edit]

There are several ways to find content on Wikipedia.

If you have a useful search string, a Google Search is quite effective.

Wikipedia search will take you directly to the article if you know the exact name or if Wikipedia has a redirect to the article. It will also suggest other articles in Wikipedia which may be relevant to your search criteria.

If you want a list of articles in the project that you can browse through, looking for inspiration or a recognisable article title, then there are several other routes:

  • Portal:Underwater diving is a work in progress, intended to provide a doorway to our articles on underwater diving in an intuitive and user friendly layout. Please suggest improvements if you have good ideas. Some may be possible with current technology, others may require new tools.
    • The portal comprises:
      • An introduction section, which defines the scope of the portal, provides an introduction taken from the main article for the topic, and this explanation of how to find articles about the topic.
      • A set of sub-topic sections. The header for each section provides the sub-topic title, and the section contains a collapsible outline list of the subtopic articles and a randomly selected excerpt from one of them.
      • A list of recognised content – The best quality articles in this topic on Wikipedia.
      • A slideshow gallery of images from Wikimedia Commons, many of which are used to illustrate the articles.
      • A collapsible category tree. The tree can be opened and closed by clicking on the arrowheads.
      • The navigation boxes for this topic. Each collapsible list provides links to related article in a logically connected group. These groups often overlap. The navigation boxes are also found at the bottom of each article in the associated group. Each navbox has an associated portal.
      • A list of related projects on Wikipedia, with an incomplete list of things that must still be done in this topic area.
      • A list of sub-portals with links to each. There is some overlap.
      • A list of related portals, with links to each. There is some overlap.
  • Outline of underwater diving is a hierarchical list of all the articles.
  • Index of underwater diving is an alphabetical list of the articles. It has sub-indexes for some of the associated groups of articles, such as:
  • The Glossary of underwater diving terminology is an alphabetical list of terms commonly used in diving and their meanings in this context. A useful quick reference. A definition will often contain a link to a detailed main article, or a section of an article on the term.

Category:Underwater diving and the associated subcategories should also list all the articles, probably in a different hierarchical structure to that used for the portal and outline list. Sometimes the category system can be more appropriate for finding information. It is also helpful for maintenance of Wikipedia and keeping track of the connectedness of articles.

If you have unlimited time and no special target, you can go down the rabbit-hole – Read the topic root article Underwater diving, and click on any link that looks interesting. Read until you find another interesting link and click on that, otherwise click your browser arrow to go back, and carry on. Stop when reality intrudes or you get bored, tired, thirsty or a fire breaks out.

None of these systems is perfect or complete. If you find an error or omission let us know, or fix it if you know how. This is a crowdsourced project – you can be one of the crowd.


Stick with the Wikipedia:Manual of Style unless there is a good reason to do otherwise.

When to create an article[edit]

Most obvious subtopics of underwater diving already have an article, or are included as a section within an existing article. Do not create a new article for an alternative title to an existing article. Create a redirect if it does not already exist. If you think that the title should be changed, start a discussion on the talk page.

As a general principle, create an article when sure that the topic is notable and there will be enough content available from reliable published sources to produce a quality article within a reasonable timespan. If there is only a small amount of well referenced content, or there is not enough evidence of notability, it is usually better to use a section of an existing article. Create redirects to the section for potential titles.

If a section of an article ever gets too big it can be split off into a separate article. This can happen several times as more detail is added.


A component should usually be described in a section of the article on the whole apparatus. It gets its own article when the content is sufficiently complete and detailed to comply with the splitting criteria. For example, Diving regulator is a part of Scuba set, but contains sufficient content for a separate article, and there is adequate evidence of notability in the literature. Scuba set contains a summary section on diving regulators, as does any other article where it may be appropriate. These summary sections are tailored to suit the containing article, and would be different for Scuba set, Diving helmet and Rebreather.

On the other hand, purge button and mouthpiece (scuba) are adequately covered as sections in Diving regulator, and were merged there from stubs.


We do not need an article on every term associated with underwater diving, even if it is notable. In some cases it is better to add a section to an existing article, and a term to the Glossary of underwater diving terminology. If you think that a topic has the potential to require a full article, then by all means create it. if it does not work out it can be merged later and redirected.

  • {{Diving term}} will create a link to a term listed in the glossary of underwater diving terminology, but will not create a redlink if the term is not in the glossary.
    Use the term to be linked as the parameter - {{diving term|term to be linked}}

Project overlap[edit]

Collaborate with other projects wherever there is an overlap of interest. Some of our articles are within the scope of Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine, and where this is the case the manual of style for medical articles may be relevant. Articles about people must comply with the requirements of Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biography.

Other projects with significant overlap include:

Terminology and spelling[edit]

Capitalise scuba in sentence case as a common noun or adjective depending on usage (see the Manual of Style mention). When part of a proper name it may be capitalised to suit accepted usage. SSDE is capitalised as an initialism, as are SCBA, BCD, BC, CCR, SCR. When in doubt, use the full name in sentence case, many abbreviations are context sensitive, and we are not short of paper. Snuba also takes sentence case unless part of a proper name.

Preferred spelling: freediving, breath-hold, sidemount (for the harness configuration).

Not cast in stone: (if you have a strong opinion supported by evidence, please explain or link)

a free-flow (helmet type) or a regulator free-flow (malfunction), but a free flow as in unobstructed flow
full-face (mask type)
lightweight (helmet type)
surface-supplied diving or surface supplied diving, both seem to be used


Wikiproject Scuba diving accepts infoboxes if they provide useful information and generally improve the usefulness of the article to the user. If the article is only tagged by Wikiproject Scuba diving on the talk page, there will probably not be any objection to adding a useful infobox. If there are other project banners, there may or may not be general acceptance of an infobox. If you add one and it is deleted, discuss before replacing.

We have one standard project infobox for equipment:


Wikiproject scuba has several navboxes. Use those which include the article's title. Use them appropriately, and discuss any proposed change which may affect a lot of articles. Add the title of a new article to the relevant template if you know how and which template is relevant - otherwise post a request on the project talk page. An article may be linked via any appropriate combination of these navboxes, and possibly navboxes from other projects. Keep project navboxes together as a general rule

The project portals are based on the navboxes.

Inclusion of articles[edit]

Wikiproject scuba banners may be added to any talk page if the subject fits our scope. If in doubt, discuss. If you add a banner, make an estimate for class and importance. If you get it right, great. If not someone will fix it. If you change a class or importance rating that you did not originally set yourself, please leave an edit summary or talk page message explaining your motivation.


If there is no consensus objection from previous editors of an article, we suggest that:

  • The reference section should be titled "References",
  • References that are cited multiple times by short form templates should be listed in a section titled "Sources", just below "References". Short form references that link to the source reference are preferred.
  • general footnotes should be in a section directly above "References" titled "Notes"
  • the reference definitions are listed in the reference section in columns about 30em wide. This is automatic by default
  • the reference definitions be alphabetically ordered by reference name
  • reference names be chosen that are meaningful and easy to remember. <ref name="Author date" />, <ref name="Editor date" /> and <ref name="Publisher date" /> are suggested as good practice.
  • the CS1 templates be used for references
  • More information in a reference does no harm, even when not strictly necessary. Bare url's should be avoided as they may become broken, and lost forever, leaving their text unreferenced. A bare url reference is better than nothing, if you are new and don't know how to create a proper reference, but try to do the job properly.
  • A statement is as good as its best reference: One good reference is worth more than any number of poor references, but poor references may be better than nothing.
  • Defer to other Wikiproject styles when the article is rated as higher importance for that project than for WPSCUBA.
  • Page numbers are good if available, chapters and sections also good. How they are best provided is not yet settled, but if they are known the format can be changed any time. If all else fails, leave as a comment after the reference name tag.

Version 1.0 Editorial Team Assessment[edit]

The quality scale is implemented in the WikiProject SCUBA template. New articles need to have our template added to their talk page.

Unassessed articles should be given an appropriate quality and importance classification by adding the |class= and |importance= parameters to the {{WPSCUBA}} template.

Some assistance in determining the appropriate class is available at Wikipedia:WikiProject SCUBA/Assessment. Importance is best estimated by considering how important or useful the information potentially included would be to a diver.
