23 Mar 5 Reasons why you should scuba dive

5 reasons why you should scuba dive:
1. Take your beach holiday to a new level
Do you enjoy spending your holiday in a tropical environment and relax on the beach? Maybe sometimes you get bored of doing the same thing day after day? Scuba diving can add some extra adventure to any beach holiday. Discover new underwater sceneries, species and maybe even wrecks while doing something active. Diving is also a great activity for the whole family, children form the age of 8 can start blowing bubbles underwater! Travelling alone? There is no better way to meet like-minded, adventurous people than by taking a PADI course.
2. Experience new sensations
Scuba diving is not only about seeing marine life, one of the most surprising things about being underwater is the complete weightlessness you feel. Move freely in all directions without the restriction of gravity you are used to feel. If there is anything that comes close to flying, diving is probably it. Another feeling that you just have to experience yourself is the complete silence once you are submerged in the big blue. Diving is not only exciting, it can also be very relaxing when you glide through the water, only hearing your breath.
3. You get to really see the world
It’s funny how our planet is called Earth, although oceans cover 71% of it. If you really want to ‘see the world’, scuba diving gives you access to the 2/3 that you have been missing out on. The best thing? You don’t need a lot of time and no experience to get started. The PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience will introduce you to the underwater world in just one day.
