5 Top benefits of scuba diving

#1 It’s a good workout

The water has more resistance than air. The underwater movements required in order to remain submerged and moving through the water provides most of the muscles in the body a complete workout. Your muscles get stronger!  Additionally, diving helps you improve your breathing.

#2 Reduces stress

There is nothing more relaxing like being under the waves and seeing the most amazing sights on the planet. It is often compared to meditation when you can literally hear your breathing as you leisurely move around the water. The underwater world is like no place on dry land and the sights are truly breath-taking. The tranquillity you will feel is exactly what the doctor ordered for those dealing with the daily stress of work.

#3 Exploring a part of our world rarely seen

The earth surface is made up of more than 70% water. The oceans of the world contain most of it. The majority of the oceans remain virtually unexplored by humans. The appeal of scuba diving to most comes from the ability to discover things that very few people will ever see in their lifetime. Whether you choose the open ocean, a freshwater lake or saltwater sea, you ware bound to find something new every time you get into the water.

Scuba diving is not the most common form of entertainment, but if you are the adventurous type it might just be right up your alley. While hiking and biking around town are the most common forms of transportation on dry land, scuba diving is the most common way to get around under or in the water. You can be sure that you will always find something absolutely new everytime you go into the water.

#5 Discover an adventure of a lifetime
