Scuba diving unlocks what covers 71% of the earth’s surface: the ocean.
If you get sick of hanging out on dry land with other humans, you can transport yourself to a whole new world complete with new fish friends.
Scuba diving is a skill that just keeps giving: every dive offers you a new experience. And even if you spent your entire life underwater, you’d never run out of ocean to explore. With so much to discover, the sooner you start, the more you’ll get to experience.
Scuba stands for “self-contained underwater breathing apparatus” and is the whole reason you can stay underwater for long periods without running out of air. You wouldn’t get very far without it, so learning how to use this piece of kit is an essential part of the whole diving thing.
For depths greater than 42 metres, tanks contain special gases with low levels of oxygen inside. This is due to the fact that oxygen becomes toxic under pressure, and you want to be able to enjoy swimming around without any breathing problems.
Colours also look different underwater. Once you’re deeper than 10 metres, you can’t see the colours red, orange or yellow. This is because water absorbs light really quickly; colours disappear in the order of which they appear on the spectrum.

Scuba diving is fairly easy to pick up but, like anything, it varies from person to person. Many people liken it to learning to drive because you have to pass a test and everyone does it at their own speed.
You should take a scuba diving class because it’s dangerous to dive without any training. Taking the time to learn the ropes properly will mean you won’t drown and will enjoy things a whole lot more.
It’s not enough of a risk that you should miss out on experiencing these underwater paradises. Also, humans kill over 100 million of them each year. This compares to just 6 human fatalities per annum, on average, over the last decade.
