11. Swim Through History
Not only does diving allow us to see the strange underwater world but things more familiar from our own
human history. There are thousands of wrecked ships and airplanes that sit at the bottom of the ocean, many
of which are from WW2. With a wreck diver specialty you will learn how you can safely swim through them.
12. It’s a Life Long Activity
Just because you are growing older doesn’t mean you have to stop diving. As long as you have good cardiac and pulmonary
health you can continue diving well into your older years. Dive centers even accommodate older
divers by giving them extra assistance and attention.
13. Experience Some- thing You’ve Never Felt Before.
Scuba diving allows you to experience many sensations you have most likely never felt before.
The key to diving comfortably is call neutral buoyancy, which means that you aren’t floating up
or sinking down. It’s the easiest way to experience weightlessness without going into space. You will
also experience breathing underwater, which might sound a bit scary at first but through practice
it becomes so natural you don’t even think about it.
