Sims can go far out in the ocean and snorkel to improve their Scuba Diving skill. Snorkeling or taking Scuba Diving classes is the only way to improve the skill enough to be able to actually dive. Snorkeling may turn up small collectibles such as shells. Sims can also snorkel in the swimming pool with sufficient space, although they will build the skill faster if they snorkel in the ocean.

There are 4 diving areas in [[Isla Paradiso]]. Each diving area has scuba diving skill requirement. One of the diving areas is first available to Sims when they reach the Scuba Diving skill level 2, being Rocky Reef, then level 4 Davy Jones' Locker, level 7 Mermaid Grotto and level 9 Pearl's Deep. Once the Sim boats or swims to above the dive lot, Sims with sufficient Scuba Diving skill can scuba dive underwater. The lots are decorated with many rocks, coral and other objects. There are also gems and fish on the lot that can be caught, [[underwater cave]]s to explore, and the treasure to discover. Mermaids can also often be seen and socialized with at the various dive lots. Other worlds will not be updated to have diving areas, but advanced players can add them on their own.

While scuba diving, Sims only have a certain amount of air to inhale before they must return to the surface. The amount of air the Sim has depends on their Scuba Diving level. The air Sims have left is shown by a moodlet. Once the first moodlet that they got when they started diving expires, they will get a negative moodlet that shows that they are having trouble breathing and should return to the surface, and if this moodlet expires after 2 hours, the Sim will get the "Gasping for Air" moodlet. If they keep staying underwater when it has expired, the Sim will die from running out of air. Having the '''Lungs of Steel''' [[lifetime reward]] allows Sims to dive indefinitely without worrying about oxygen.

The air Sims have left is shown by a moodlet. Once the first moodlet that they got when they started diving expires, they will get a negative moodlet that shows that they are having trouble breathing and should return to the surface, and if this moodlet expires, and the Sim is still in the sea, the Sim will die. Having the '''Iron Lungs''' [[lifetime reward]], allows Sims to dive indefinitely without worrying about oxygen.

This skill can be improved by snorkeling and scuba diving. Only teens and above can scuba dive. Children can go snorkeling, but not scuba diving, up to level 3, but the skill is hidden until the child becomes a teen. Just like any other skill, the Sim can go up to level 10, gaining buffs (less depressurization time and more oxygen) and unlocking more diving areas.

Scuba Diving

Two Sims diving at a dive lot

Scuba Diving skill icon
Scuba diving is a skill in The Sims 3: Island Paradise. Sims learn this skill by snorkeling in the ocean. As they advance this skill, they can start scuba diving in diving areas. This skill is augmented for Sims with the Loves to Swim trait.

Skill Description

[Your Sim's name] is ready to begin his/her underwater adventure exploring the deep depths of the ocean floor. '[Your Sim's name] can continue building on this skill by snorkeling or scuba diving.

Snorkeling

Sims can go far out in the ocean and snorkel to improve their scuba diving skill. Snorkeling or taking Scuba Diving classes is the only way to improve the skill enough to be able to actually dive. Snorkeling may turn up small collectibles such as shells.

Sims can also snorkel in a swimming pool with sufficient space, although they will build the skill faster snorkeling in the ocean. If the pool where the Sim is snorkeling isn't spacious enough, the action will automatically be canceled. Once you learn the skill you'll be able to visit some dive spots and as diving you learn more Skill.

Dive Lots

One of the dive lots available to Sims.

There are 4 diving areas in Isla Paradiso. Each diving area has scuba diving skill requirement. One of the diving areas is first available to Sims when they reach the Scuba Diving skill level 2, being Rocky Reef, then level 4 Davy Jones' Locker, level 7 Mermaid Grotto and level 9 Pearl's Deep. Once the Sim boats or swims to above the dive lot, Sims with sufficient Scuba Diving skill can scuba dive underwater. The lots are decorated with many rocks, coral and other objects. There are also gems and fish on the lot that can be caught, underwater caves to explore, and the treasure to discover. Mermaids can also often be seen and socialized with at the various dive lots. Other worlds will not be updated to have diving areas, but advanced players can add them on their own.

Oxygen

While scuba diving, Sims only have a certain amount of air to inhale before they must return to the surface. The amount of air the Sim has depends on their Scuba Diving level. The air Sims have left is shown by a moodlet. Once the first moodlet that they got when they started diving expires, they will get a negative moodlet that shows that they are having trouble breathing and should return to the surface, and if this moodlet expires after 2 hours, the Sim will get the "Gasping for Air" moodlet. If they keep staying underwater when it has expired, the Sim will die from running out of air. Having the Lungs of Steel lifetime reward allows Sims to dive indefinitely without worrying about oxygen.

Improving the Skill

This skill can be improved by snorkeling and scuba diving. Only teens and above can scuba dive. Children can go snorkeling, but not scuba diving, up to level 3, but the skill is hidden until the child becomes a teen. Just like any other skill, the Sim can go up to level 10, gaining buffs (less depressurization time and more oxygen) and unlocking more diving areas.

Statistics

  • Hours Spent Snorkeling
  • Hours Spent Diving
  • Shells Collected
  • Message Bottles Collected
  • Times Mauled By Shark
  • Caves Explored
  • Treasure Chests Opened
  • Sea Life Collected

Challenges

Pearl Diver
Pearl Divers have collected at least 50 shells. Their reputation for collecting reputable finds helps them sell their shells at higher prices.
Underwater Spelunker
Underwater Spelunkers are brave divers who have explored underwater caves at least 15 times. Those many trips in to the dark caverns means the Underwater Spelunker is more likely to find collectables while exploring caves.
Savvy Snorkeler
Savvy Snorklers have spent at least 40 hours snorkeling in water. Their experience scanning the underwater floor for hidden items gives them a higher chance of finding collectables while snorkeling.
