TOP 10 REASONS TO
LEARN TO SCUBA DIVE:

 

  • Scuba is a perfect great activity for almost any age: Anyone aged 12 and up can become fully certified in scuba diving. Many divers stay active into their 90s! Children as young as 8 years old may participate in youth programs such as Bubblemakers, Scuba Birthday Parties, and Seal Team. When they are 10, kids can earn a junior scuba certification if they are ready.
  • Safe and easy: With proper skills, training and equipment, scuba diving is a safe and easy activity to learn. If you can swim--and breathe, then you can learn to dive! Adaptive Scuba programs enable people with multiple physical challenges to dive—it really is for almost everyone.
  • Interact with undersea creatures: Dolphins, Whales, Turtles and Seahorses! See local and exotic life from a whole new vantage point. Personally discover the biodiversity in our oceans and lakes. See the things that most people only see in movies.
  • Experience tranquility and a freedom unlike any other: Most divers agree that while underwater, the noise and stress from daily life just float away. Slow, relaxed, breathing, soothes your mind & body. Underwater, divers enjoy freedom from restrictions of gravity and weight.
  • An adventurous travel activity: Scuba diving can be the focus of vacation plans, or can become an exciting part of them. Local dives sites offer a weekend experience like no other. Scuba diving is an adventure sport that is sure to fill your life with incredible memories, experiences, and new friendships.
  • It’s great for your mental and physical health: Diving gets us up off the sofa and into the water where we can often move and flex in ways that we can’t on land. Diving can be a great way to get exercise and stimulate both the mind and body. Make it a part of your healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Meet great people: Become a part of a friendly and passionate community. Meet people who love the same things you do and share your experiences with them. Join your dive center club, go on trips, take classes, make new life-long friends. Liven up your social media posts with great dive pictures. (# who is cool now?)
  • See the World: Scuba diving is an activity that is enjoyed throughout the world. 71% of our earth is underwater! It’s time to get down there and see some of it!
  • Scuba Diving is Transformational: You will be amazed at the confidence and pride that learning to dive will bring to you. People often report that diving changes their lives—at the very least you will have learned to do something that less than 10% of the world can do.
  • Learn to appreciate and preserve marine life: Many creatures and underwater environments have been rescued and rehabilitated by the efforts of scuba divers. Those who spend time in, and love, the sea often get involved in efforts to preserve and protect it. Through our efforts, even things like posting on social media, divers are helping to make a difference.
