The diver down flag.

Welcome to WikiProject SCUBA. Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of SCUBA 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, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Wikiproject SCUBA is not very active, and this page is not updated very often, but there are still a few members plugging away at improving and creating articles, so if you are interested, go ahead and do it. If you want assistance, or have some useful comments or requests, leave a message on the talk page.


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.


  • If you wear it, breathe it, use it, or even look at it while you're underwater, then it probably falls under the scope of this project. More refined details about the scope to come at a later date.
  • Freediving is included in the broader scope, as is surface supplied diving.
