1) 70% of the world is water – why stop at your 30%?
Think about how many amazing sights and adventures there are to explore on land – but did you know that land covers only 30% of the world? Imagine how many amazing things you can discover under the water. Being able to dive allows you to explore so many new areas, so why restrict yourself?
Scuba diving allows you to see and experience parts of the world that no other person has seen. It also allows you to explore underwater caves, reefs, wrecks and find animals and organisms that you never even knew existed. I managed to dive with manta rays on just my sixth dive, and I can’t begin to explain amazing it was to interact with such beautiful and graceful creatures.
3) Push your boundaries
Diving inevitably puts you out of your comfort zone. It’s a foreign experience and you’re dealing with new equipment and surroundings. But that’s not a bad thing! In fact, it’s all part of the fun. It’s good to push your boundaries. It keeps you open-minded, you learn new things and you develop a new found confidence. Although diving looks scary, as long as you keep your cool, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it really is.

One thing you can pretty much guarantee is that every dive will be different and you’ll constantly be surprised with what you find!
