Have you every wondered what scuba diving was like 60+ years ago?

It was the dawn of recreational scuba diving, where 2-hose regulators were the norm, underwater hunting was often the pursuit of choice, and training programs were just beginning to form.

Below is a video entitled “Deep Sea Adventure” which, with the help of some dramatic narration, shares a glimpse of some of the equipment used, and the sense of adventure this emerging sport offered to those daring and adventurous enough to try it.

The film was released by Castle Films in 1953,
