Why learn to scuba dive?
Good question! There are many reasons to learn to scuba dive. It may be something to mark off your bucket list, a reason to travel or even a way to escape the effects of gravity. If you’ve been thinking about it and haven’t taken the plunge, here is a top 5 list of reasons to learn to dive.
1. Explore parts of the world that many don’t get to see.
The ocean covers 71 percent of the earth’s surface. If your goal is to “see the world” then you’ll need to learn to scuba dive.
2. You have a place to escape everyday technology and Zen out.
There are no phone calls to answer or emails to respond to underwater. Your attention is focused on breathing and what you see through your mask (which most of the time is pretty awesome!).
3. Experience weightlessness.
Is gravity always bringing you down? Learn to dive and feel the sweet spot of neither sinking nor floating.
4. Relive the vast amount of history that lies beneath the sea.
You can explore wrecks that sit at the bottom of the ocean, including World War ships and planes.
5. You can one-up your friends on social media.
This is especially useful if you have a lot of friends who run marathons…Sound Awesome?? Let’s dive in!!
