    present perfect

    Hi,
    Is this sentence correct? " Have you ever been scuba diving?"
    If it's correct, is it different from " Have you ever gone scuba diving?".
    Thanks in advance.

    Personally, I'd say "Have you ever scuba-dived?".

    Although I must admit both of your variants are OK.

    They are both fine and mean the same thing. Please bear in mind, though, that "been" and "gone" are not always interchangeable.
