1. Discover a new world
You discover a new world when you get underwater. You can see different species and landscapes. The first time I went scuba diving I could not believe what I had been missing. I started seeing things in a different perspective and realizing how small I am in this world, yet how much power we have to create a positive impact.
2. See more of the destination you are visiting
By scuba diving where you are touristing, you get to see the whole picture of that place. It is important to not only learn the history or try new food, but also to discover new cultures, including the underwater one. Each place have a different ecosystem and different underwater landscapes that are worth visiting.
3. You can help taking care of the ecosystem
By scuba diving you can also help clean the underwater world if you do it correctly. We recommend to ask your instructor for a bag where you can recollect any trash you find in your journey. You can have a great impact in taking care of the underwater world and leave a good impression while doing good. These types of actions can help save several marine life and allow the next generation to enjoy our heritage.
4. Great way to know more people
Visiting a new place alone? Well, scuba diving is a great way to meet people with similar interests. While in the boat to and from the dive you talk about all the exciting things you will see and how “nervous” you are and after the dive, share photos, videos and comments about the dive. If you found a great group of people maybe you guys can go a grab a couple drinks.
5. Self Control
Scuba diving is great to teach you balance and self control. Balance because you need to breath in a certain way so you do not change your buoyancy too much. It is great for self control because you must pace yourself if you get anxious or afraid. If anything does not go according to plan it also has to be dealt with true self control as you are under water. It is a great experience to get to know yourself better.
