I haven't followed this thread but Janko's comment reminded me that of dive
sites that I'm aware of.

We have numerous dive sites in Washington State, in the US. Edmonds Marine
Park[1] is one of the most popular with about 25K divers visiting each
year. It's not tagged in OSM but probably should be. Other park facilities
are used by divers as one of their many recreational offerings, such as
boating, fishing, etc.

I like the leisure=scuba_diving_attraction, especially for sites that offer
underwater attractions for divers. I'm not sure it fits well with sites
that allow diving, but no particular attractions. For example, the US
National Parks Service indicates on their maps sites that offer diving. In
those cases it might scuba=yes
