What Diving Means to Us
It is true that we have all met and become friends through diving. Now we even hang out together socially. It can be a great bonding experience with friends you already have.It is also an excellent way to meet like-minded people. For us, scuba diving is so much more than just a hobby or a job.It is a source of camaraderie and friendship. You know that you are with people who care about you and have your back. It is an easy way to put aside your troubles for a moment and experience something few people get a chance to see while having your friends right there with you.
When you scuba dive, you have access to this whole other part of the world. 70% of the earth is covered by water. That makes it accessible to nearly everyone.However, not everyone takes advantage of all that water and bothers to check it out by diving. People have plenty of reasons. They think it is hard work, too expensive, mistakenly believe it is dangerous, or they don’t want to “bother” with the certification process. That means more dive time for us but we also don’t want people missing out because they are uneducated about our favorite pastime.
As a group, we can honestly say that some of our best memories have happened underwater.We put on our tanks and investigate the sea life inside some coral. Or we can swim with sea turtles, dolphins, and other sea creatures. There are caves and caverns to explore. You really do feel like you are a part of Nature. While you are an observer, it doesn’t feel passive in any way. You do not just feel separate from your environment at all. Nature gets up close and personal. You experience things underwater that other people don’t get to.You get to be part of something that other people have no idea about.We love to scuba dive because of moments like that.
Life is so short. There are so many opportunities that pass you by when you’re just existing in your own world and not actually taking part in the life around you. That’s one of the reasons why we dive, why we are instructors, and why we started this blog. We want to help people feel like they are part of the world through scuba diving.We think that it’s one of the most amazing things that you’re ever going to do.One of our goals of this website is to be able to show people what it means to scuba dive.We want you to know how to do it safely.We can tell you what you need to do in order to progress in the sport.You should also know how to participate in an ocean habitat without disturbing it.
Scuba diving changed our lives for the better and we hope that you feel the same way.
