If you’re looking for a new challenge and love learning new things then how about looking at scuba diving? Not only will you be active and outdoors, but it opens up the possibility of traveling to some amazing locations, sounds like the perfect holiday!

Diving-1

From the very first time you breathe underwater, scuba diving will inspire, challenge and surprise you. Many divers say that it is life-changing and, with the sense of achievement that comes with learning to dive, it is easy to see why.

With 70% of the planet covered in water, there is so much for a diver to see, experience and explore. Add to that the wide range of diving – wrecks, marine life, photography, conservation, underwater archaeology, exploration, deep and technical diving – and the opportunities are endless.

LEARN TO DIVE AT A CENTRE

With the right training and support, it is easy and fun to learn. PADI is the most recognised qualification and known worldwide. You can learn in the UK or even combine with a holiday and do some training on location.

KIT

When you are first starting out you will hire most of your gear and where you dive – i.e. the warmth of the water – will dictate what you wear. Dive gear has developed rapidly so if you’re thinking old fashioned, hefty wetsuits then think again – wetsuits now are soft, flexible and designed for absolute comfort and performance.
