About Scuba Diving
Many people learn to SCUBA dive for the adventure of exploring a new and exciting environment. The ocean covers 71% of the earth’s surface. If your goal is to “see the world” then you’ll need to learn how to dive! As a diver you can explore historical shipwrecks, Mayan cenotes, and colorful reefs teeming with fish.
A Family Activity
Diving is something you can all do together as a family. While adults may be in need of some rest and relaxation on vacation, kids are probably hoping to do a bit more than just lounge by the pool. Learning to dive is a great way for families to share a fun and exciting activity together.
Did you know that astronauts train for zero gravity in scuba diving tanks? Diving is the closest thing on earth to experiencing the weightlessness of outer space.
Learn About Physics, Math and Natural Sciences in a Practical Way
Scuba divers must understand how pressure and temperature changes affect our body and the air we breathe. For example, when we learn about buoyancy we learn about the Archimedes Principle and when we learn about how gas works under pressure, we learn about Boyle’s law.
Teach Your Kids Responsibility
Through learning to dive, your kids will develop personal responsibility and because we always dive in pairs, they will learn how to look out for their “buddy” as well.
Once you become a SCUBA diver you become a part of a worldwide community. Diving is a very social experience. You will meet lots of adventurous people who share a common interest.
