One who dives underwater while wearing a mask attached to a container of compressed air that allows for long periods of breathing without resurfacing. "Scuba" was originally an acronym for "self-contained underwater breathing apparatus." I don't think I have a future as a scuba diver, but I really enjoyed looking at the coral reef underwater.
