Top 4 Reasons Why We Love Scuba Diving

#1 – You get to travel to exotic places.

70% of the world is covered in ocean, why not go explore places such as:

  • The crystal clear waters of the Silfra Rift off of Iceland
  • Adventurous diving in the Red Sea
  • The kelp forests of California
  • The scuttled German Fleet from WWI at Scapa Flo
  • 30 Japanese ships sunk at Truk lagoon
  • Incredible visibility, currents, and shark diving in South East Asia
  • Pristine reefs and amazing life in Fiji
  • Exploring Raja Ampat and the farthest-flung areas of Timor Timor
  • Macro life diving in the Philippines

#2 – Diving is a social activity.

Plus, diving is a great way to meet others in a recreational setting, and share a passion for the underwater world. There are dive clubs in and around almost every major city in the world. Most dive clubs have weekly or monthly get-togethers where you can make new friends and plan new adventures. They will organize trips and help with group equipment buys, exchange information and experiences, and just generally have fun!

#3 – You learn new skills for different types of diving.

#4 – Diving is the closest most of us will ever get to being an astronaut.

Once mastered, diving can be a Zen-like experience. The best part of the day is when you drop in the water because once you do, the rest of the world disappears. No cellphones, no stress, no hassles, no deadlines, no urgency, no cares.

Then just take a look around at the amazing variety of life and beauty of the reef and its inhabitants. From animals the size of a whale shark to the tiniest nudibranch (sea slug) that you need a magnifying glass to see, it’s amazing!

You are weightless and can drift around at will. No real effort is required and you can be a part of this amazing environment for an hour or more.
