Why do we love diving so much?

It is exciting –seeing marine animals, wrecks, reefs and seascapes.

Relaxing – floating weightless underwater helps unwind from day to day stresses.

Peaceful – the silent world, and floating among fish can make you feel calm and serene.

Challenging – diving is an adventurous sport and there are skills that take perseverance to learn.

Educational – in addition to ‘diving’ you inevitably learn about other things like weather, physics, biology, maritime history, seamanship, marine ecology – and it is all fascinating stuff.

Really good fun – scuba is a social sport, organised as a group activity with everyone having a buddy for the dive. It is enjoyable to both plan and to do and also makes for great conversation afterwards.

Nearest thing most of us will get to ‘flying’ – from hanging motionless in mid water to whooshing along a seascape in a current – yes, you can fly!

It takes us places we have never been before – from the Scillies to the Shetlands in the UK or from the Med to the Maldives in international waters – your holiday’s destinations are often new and exciting.

Immersing in  another element – scuba diving is the nearest thing at most of us will get to simply entering into a whole new world.
