Still not sure?

Here’s what a few divers had to say about their Discover Scuba Diving experience and first breaths underwater.

“Scuba diving can be one of the most thrilling moments of your life. It felt so natural. I was always warned by people that the scariest thing is trusting your equipment and taking your first breath underwater, but that wasn’t the case for me at all. I couldn’t believe how natural it felt. Feeling so comfortable also helped me concentrate on the skills being learned and they were no problem at all. I will always remember that experience, it was one of the most thrilling moments of my life, and also a moment when I discovered my passion for diving.”
– Katrina, 20, Canada

“Breathing underwater is an amazing feeling. The water was lovely and warm! We got all suited up and the time had come to breathe underwater for the very first time! What an amazing yet surreal feeling. Suddenly, as I went under the world became so quiet with only the sound of many little bubbles escaping from my regulator.  And so we sat on the bottom,fishes all around us, all just looking at each other. I just had to giggle watching everyone’s face as they adjusted to their new surroundings. It reminded me of the way fish look when you take them out of water…trying to figure out where the air was coming from.”
 Mandy, 31, Canada

“Once you try scuba diving, you will feel like a member of a secret society. The emotion that you feel after a dive is indescribable. Thus, you will be sharing something precious with other people from all over the world – the same astonishing experience, one to be treasured. When I dive, I can’t stop smiling afterwards and I know that only other divers can fully understand this feeling”.
-Elena M

 

Well, no more ‘buts’! Scuba diving is not an extreme sport, as many think. The only skill you need is…..breathing……..you can do that, right? Check out our Dive Courses below!
