Have you been thinking about getting your scuba diving certification in Okinawa? If so, what’s holding you back? Getting your Padi and becoming a certified diver is well worth it! Below, we will explore the different reasons why you should consider becoming a scuba diver:
1. You can escape the day-to-day world
There is no denying that the day-to-day world can be fast-paced and stressful, can’t it? With scuba diving, you have the perfect opportunity to get away from all of this. There are no phone calls or emails to answer when you are under the water! It is just you and nature. There is no better way to escape and find inner peace. When scuba diving, you become weightless both physically and in terms of your own peace of mind.
2. Experience a piece of history
Scuba diving enables you to explore parts of history. This could be old ship and plain wrecks that have sunk a lot of years before, with many occurring during the wars. When you are diving and exploring these sites, you are literally swimming amongst a piece of history. It almost feels like a chapter from Indiana Jones, but this time you are the one, who is looking for the artifacts on your own treasure hunt. How cool is that?
3. Make new friends from all over the world
Like any activity or sport, making friends is easy when you have the same interest. There is nothing better than enjoying a cold beer (or any other drink of your choice!) with your dive buddies after you have had a day exploring the great oceans. You can share travel destinations, dive sites, stories, and much more! Diving communities often organize group gatherings, beach cleanups and diving trips together to a new diving destination.
4.Witness majestic creatures in their natural habitat
There is so much different and amazing marine life underwater. From the world’s largest animal, the Blue whale, to the tiny frogfish; you will get to see marine life big and small. Plus, you get to see these creatures in their natural habitat, which is a truly incredible sight to behold.
5. You will get to see parts of the world that others will never see
Last but not least, becoming a scuba diver enables you to see parts of the world that you otherwise would not be able to! Did you know that 70 of planet earth is covered in water? When you consider that fact, you can understand that there is a lot to explore in our amazing oceans! You will get to see some truly spectacular parts of the world that you otherwise would not be able to see if you did not have your scuba diving certification.
