8 Reasons tell me why I should go scuba diving

                                                                                               

1. Underwater photographing is cool and funny

Underwater photographing is a combine of scuba diving and photographing skill. That is full of challenging and passion thing

If you are a photographer that you should try to take photography underwater photo. You will get lots of fun from it.


2. The feeling of zero gravity

Where else do you get the feeling of zero gravity? I enjoy it on every single dive, over and over again. It might not feel like that right on your first dives. The keyword is neutral buoyancy. This means to float, relative lightness. It is also one of the hardest skills in scuba diving. You will never stop perfecting your buoyancy. However, even at the start when you are slowly learning to control your buoyancy and breathing you will start to feel weightless.

3. Being a visitor in a different world

As we do not actually belong under water, (if we did we would be much better swimmers or maybe would have gills – which would actually be neat), scuba diving allows you to be a visitor in a different world.

All the fish just do whatever they are up to and the diver is an observer. Sometimes it is possible to witness special interactions between some of the underwater creatures like schooling behavior, fights or even mating.


4. Moving in 3 dimensions

On land we are used to moving in two dimensions, you cannot just go up or down from where you stand. Underwater, however, you can move up and down without much effort. When you start getting better with your buoyancy control you will be able to rise and fall in the water just by controlling your breathing – wow! Try doing that on land….

5. Make new friends

Most divers and scuba instructors are very interesting. You want to be their friend! You want to hear and be inspired by their stories- the places they have been, the marine life they have seen, and how they got to where they are. Also, you don’t necessarily have to sign up for a dive with friends or family; most dives are conducted in small groups so you will definitely meet new people who are literally in the same boat as you are.


6. Protect marine life

By choosing to dive into open waters, you are actively doing your part in preventing marine life being kept captive. Besides, once underwater, the sights that you witness will sensitize you toward protecting marine life and you will become more aware of the harm that our inhumane actions cause.


7. Discover the unknown

The ocean covers 71% of the earth’s surface, which means that if you want to ‘travel the world’ you need to go diving. There is an entire world with its own species, communities and way of life waiting to be discovered, while we are stuck in 29% of a larger reality. We need to stop being comfortable with what we know and are accustomed to and expand our horizons to discover the unknown. The universe has given us enough lemons; more people need to wake up and squeeze the juice.



8. It's not that hard

The open water course takes 3 to 4 days. After some theory you will most probably already get into the water to do some skills on your first day and on the second you might even descend in the open ocean. After finishing the course you will have done 4 dives in the open sea, learned some theory about scuba diving and understood the basic skills.


As a certified diver,  you can now go diving in most places all over the world. Have fun!
