Scuba Diving is mainly done for the attraction of the unattainable undersea world. It is one area of nature that mankind has not been able to fully control, we simply are not able to breathe underwater. Hence, Scuba Diving gives us an opportunity to be in that underwater world, even if it is just for a limited amount of time.
Of course, the underwater world is beautiful as well, with many people opting for scuba diving in Asia or Scuba Diving in the Red Sea or The Great Barrier Reef, said to be some of the World's best scuba diving locations. The different colors and marine wildlife are so impressive in all these locations that people find themselves returning over and over again.
Besides that, did you know ...?
For recreational divers, the depth limit is between 30 and 40 meters (equating to 100 to 133 feet). If you want to go deeper, special training or a specially trained buddy is required.
Nuno Gomes holds the world record for deepest scuba dive at 318 meters (or 1044 feet). He defeated John Bennet (deceased), who dove to 308 meters (or 1016 feet). There is a French diver, Pascal Bernabe, who maintains that he has been able to dive deeper (330 meters or 1083 feet), but this is unconfirmed.
If you do enjoy Scuba Diving, there are a couple of things you can do to make it even more interesting. There are many artificial reefs, for example. These artificial reeds have been created either to restore destroyed coral or as a scientific experiment to see how coral grows and how it attracts other marine life. There are many wrecks, for example, that have been purposely sunken to create artificial reefs.
If you have nerves of steel, you may want to consider going for a dive with sharks! A cage dive with sharks can be the experience of a lifetime. You are basically enclosed in a steel cage and lowered into a shoal of shark, attracted by fish guts beforehand.
The main thing with Scuba Diving will always be : STAY SAFE and ENJOY IT !!!
