The short answer to “is scuba diving easy?” is NO! That’s why you need trained professionals to teach beginners. First of all, you need to know how to swim, which in itself isn’t easy for a large population of people.
Then, you have to feel comfortable deep under the ocean. Scuba diving in shallow shores to look at fish and sea critters is easier than scuba diving far out in the ocean to excavate a ship wreck or play with sharks. But it’s all hard, until you become professionally trained.
Only after proper experience does scuba diving become easy.
