Here are the top 10 Reasons why you should start Scuba Diving Today:
1. Discovery of another World
With the Oceans covering more than 71% of the earth’s surface – you need to learn to Scuba dive to be
a true world explorer. 1% is assessable for normal recreational diving but this 1% will be enough for a life time’s worth of exploring.
2. The Beauty of the Underwater world
The underwater world is full of amazing discoveries, just as the surface environment, you have various climates and ecosystems which are open for you to explore. Diving allows us to observe the sanctuaries of the depths, where the fauna and flora are like nothing you have seen before. Imagine diving the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Red Sea in Egypt, the Galapagos Islands, the Truk Islands in the heart of the Pacific, Silfra in Iceland, and the Cenotes in Mexico. And so many other incredible places to discover! No matter where you go in the world you will always find an underwater adventure.
3. The Divers Spirit
Diving is not just a leisure activity – it is a way of life!
Diving is more than just exploration and the adventure of jumping in. It’s about the Social connections you form with different people from around the world. Discover new cultures, new destinations and always thinking of the next dive.
It becomes your lifestyle.
4. Health and Fitness
Diving not only benefits your body but also your mental health.
A 45min dive burns between 450-550 calories depending on the conditions. This is similar to average effort cycling or a low-speed run for 45 min.
It has also been confirmed that diving has a positive impact on your mood. It promotes mindfulness and, from a study by the University of Sheffield’s Medical School, we can now say that it also improves levels of anxiety and depression.
5. The feeling of being weightless
Have you ever dreamed of flying?
Scuba diving is a good way to make your dreams come true. Underwater because of neutral buoyancy you fly over
shipwrecks and swim among schools of fish. You can go look for Nemo yourself.
When submerged, you can relax. All you hear is the bubbles rising to the surface of the sounds of the aquatic organisms and if you are lucky maybe the singing of whales and dolphins. Once the fear of underwater subsiding, it becomes a place to discover and, relax!
7. Expand your Knowledge
Diving means learning!
It requires you to constantly develop your knowledge and perfect your technique. You need to know your equipment and how it works, but also the physical properties of the underwater world and how it affects our physiology. You will learn about the underwater world and how fragile it is and you’ll become an ambassador of the oceans!
8. It is for Everyone
Anyone can enjoy diving!
Scuba diving is a recreational sport for everyone, young or old, male or female.
