cat navy 425Have you ever been scuba diving?

I see nothing wrong with this sentence. It means 'Have you ever scuba-dived?' or 'Have you ever experienced scuba-diving?'.

Note that it refers to the act of 'diving,' putting on a tank, a mask, and the relevant apparatus, and going underwater in an ocean, sea, lake, etc.; by the same token, we would say 'Have you ever been snorkeling?'.

Dear all,

Please tell me whether the following sentence is correct. If yes, I would like to know it's meaning.

1) Have you ever been scuba diving? It looks grammatical but syntactically has an odd tone to it. I would say this. Usually, we would ask someone " have you (ever) done any scuba diving/ Paracailing before?" in reference to experience of activity. For experience of places or visits, we would say "have you (ever) been to Saint Thomas"? I don't recommend the pattern in pink.


Thank you.

1) Have you ever been scuba diving?This is fine, and very commonly said. I think the underlying idea is that you go somewhere to perform this activity, eg you go to a lake, you go to the ocean).

Note that we don't say eg Have you ever been chess playing? because you don't have to go anywhere.
