What does 2016 have in store for you? Did you come up with a couple of New Year’s resolutions? Most people have a brave new list which starts with exercise as a top resolution –but we all know how quickly we get bored with that one!
One of the best ways to get a good workout and to enjoy yourself every time is by taking up scuba diving. It is without doubt an exhilarating hobby which is fun, varied, relieves stress and it is a great way to stay fit and active.
Why Scuba Diving?
South Africa is one of the most beautiful diving locations in the world. The tropical waters, marine life and intricate reefs will simply take your breathe away. Many of the cities in South Africa have diving schools, and acquiring first-rate training and proper quality equipment is relatively easy for those new to the sport.
The reasons for getting into scuba diving in 2016 are many and varied. As a beginner, you get to practice a cool new skill which challenges you both physically and mentally. This is exactly what you need as a New Year’s resolution: an opportunity to flex new muscles, explore a different world, meet new people and have fun while doing it. One of the perks people enjoy about scuba diving is meeting and interacting with people from all over the world.
South Africa is well known for having fantastic scuba diving locations, such as Sodwana Bay, False Bay, and Aliwal Shoal. Inland dive sites include Wondergat in North West Province and Komati Springs in Mpumalanga. So if you’ve been planning to start something innovative this coming year, scuba is the answer.
Scuba Diving Safety
Anyone who has ever been scuba diving for the first time will tell you how nerve-wrecking and scary it can be. However, having a professional instructor with you certainly helps to allay those fears. Scuba diving may be all fun and exciting, but safety should ever be taken for granted. There are specific safety rules to learn and be adhered to, and that is the reason to ensure that your instructor is skilled, competent and, most importantly, certified.
Scuba diving with PADI certified instructors is essential because they have been trained to world class standards. Simply put, you want to make sure that your instructor is someone whose expertise is solid, reliable and of integrity. Nobody wants to dive with an instructor who is unable to instil confidence in their ability to manage all eventualities.
