There are other things too to ensure that the experience is good and safe. The person who is going to dive is supposed to be underwater for some time, and hence the equipment to help the person breath without any difficulties is of paramount importance. This breathing apparatus has got a cylinder attached to it. This cylinder usually has Nitrox in a compressed form so that the diver can use it to breathe when underwater. The supply of this gas can be controlled by the regulator provided to the diver.

It is imperative to ensure that this breathing equipment is well maintained, serviced and in good condition. One should also ensure that he or she should not go far away from the instructor because if need be, it will be easy to approach the instructor and he will be able to help you out. If you are not an advanced diver then you should always play safe and stay away from going too deep.
