Ten reasons why you should learn to scuba dive

One of the biggest questions people ask is why do we dive? Now we might be biased saying it is amazing and the best thing ever, but we will let you decide for yourself..

So, if you have been thinking about taking the plunge and learning to dive here is a top 10 list of reasons why you should learn to dive

1. Exploration

71% of Earth is covered in water with around 96.5% of this being oceans. Of this approximately 80% of all oceans have never been mapped, explored, or even seen by humans. Scuba diving opens a huge range of opportunities whether that be exploring lakes and rivers to open ocean diving, there’s something for everyone.


2. Nature

Given much of the world is covered in water there are estimated to be between 1.4-1.6 million different marine species ranging from tiny plankton to the largest mammal in the world the blue whale. There are always amazing sights to see whilst diving whether it be coral, schools of fish or even marine mammals, there is never a dull moment.


3. Experience weightlessness

Whilst going into outer space might seem a bit out of reach, diving can also give you that experience of weightlessness. Just floating around neither sinking nor floating is the ultimate relaxation.

4. History

There is an abundance of history to be discovered whilst diving whether that be exploring a ship or plane wreck, or maybe looking for fossils and lost items. There is so much of the past you can discover whilst underwater.


5. Relaxation

Tired of the constant busyness of everyday life or constantly staring at computer screens? Diving is the answer! Whilst diving you have no distractions you can be free to switch off and escape reality under the water.


6. Social media bragging rights

We all get tired of seeing the same old posts on social media of people going about day-to-day life, so why not stand out from the crowd? Post those awesome dive pictures of you exploring a wreck or diving with seals, everyone will be #jealous

7. Learning

From the very minute you start your scuba diving journey you are always learning whether that be the physics of diving, learning to plan a dive or even learning the hand signals. There is always something new to learn with it.


8. Opportunities

After qualifying your open water there are tons of opportunities to progress. Want to be the hero and be the one everyone looks at in a crisis? Why not try our rescue course! There is something for everyone. Also, being PADI qualified looks amazing on your CV.


9. Mental toughness

When learning to dive lots of emphasis is put on staying calm in stressful situations and working through it in a step-by-step approach. These skills make you stronger not only in the water but out of the water too #keepcalmandcarryon


10. Making new friends

Diving is a very social sport. You aren’t always underwater, and you can normally spot groups of divers chatting over a brew and a burger. We are all a friendly bunch and like to make everyone feel welcome. Come and join us, be part of a community.
