Scuba Diving

Now that you have considered Scuba Diving as a potential hobby or just something to go enjoy in the open waters, it is essential to learn how to get that Professional Association of Diving Instructors or PADI License for you to become an instructor and eventually teach people how to live their best days in their newfound passion.

What is Scuba Diving?

For starters, Scuba diving refers to an underwater sport that involves breathing underwater using a scuba set and exploring the underwater world. The diver would be needing essentials such as fins, mask, regulator, weights and a wetsuit.

Additionally, with the help of a buoyancy control device and dive computer, open water divers could reach their maximum potential in exploring the pristine reefs of Puerto Galera.

Originally, it arose from the need for underwater navigation to the point that its development was partially motivated by the military defense. Additionally, diving is the best way to explore wrecks.

A diver typically descends using a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) that includes an air supply, sometimes supplemented by a primary carbon dioxide removal system if you decide to get involved in technical diving.

What Scuba Diving in Puerto Galera can bring you

Over 30 Dive Sites

When you start diving your instructors will be taking you to calm, protected areas to do your lessons, learn how to control your body underwater, and get accustomed to your equipment. There will still be lots of pretty fishes and coral reefs to look at but you will be doing your lessons over a sandy bottom so you do not damage the corals.

However, once you master your training you will certainly want to do more and try sites with greater challenges. Puerto Galera has everything for the beginner all the way up to technical sites if you decide to get really serious about diving.

For people that think they have seen it all then you need to dive with our professional Dive Masters, Guides, and Instructors. They will introduce you to a myriad of marine life creatures from the teeny tiny to the tricky and mysterious ones that you never knew existed.

Great Training Ground for First time Scuba Divers

PADI, Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is by far the largest, safest, and most thorough dive training organization in the world. You can start learning as early as 8 years old and continue your training as far as your personal goals push you to achieve.

The more you dive, the more you will probably want to learn about diving. There is navigation, Photography or maybe take a Rescue course to learn how to help yourself and others.

Of course, there are also Marine Conservation courses for those really interested in helping the environment. There is always more to learn.

Great Visibility

Once you learn to go scuba your fascination could induce you to document your amazing ocean adventures. The best way, of course, is to take photos and videos. Camera equipment has become much cheaper over the last few years and digitally stored images make it cheap and easy to edit and share your experiences.

You will still need some camera lights to truly capture this silent world but having the clear water for visibility that allows the natural light to penetrate makes this much easier.

Comparable to a Space Travel

Scuba Diving is honestly the closest any of us will ever get to traveling into Outer Space but it is amazingly similar. First, we need special equipment to breathe and survive. Similarly, you will be weightless and able to float around without touching the ground.

However, the greatest part is the Wild, Weird creatures you will see! Straight out of a science fiction movie, I promise. The space aliens you see in the movies are not as mind-blowing as the ones in our own oceans.

Some marine life biologists believe that octopus are actually an alien species that arrived on earth as frozen eggs 540 million years ago. Well, you can decide on that but, for sure, they definitely are different!

Meeting New Friends

This sport is not just about diving, it is about meeting interesting people. Every dive site is an adventure on a boat with lots of time to enjoy the scenery, feel the breeze, absorb the sunshine and meet new people.

Scuba Diving attracts people from all countries, all ages, and all cultures and they all come to Puerto Galera for the same reasons as you. So very many lifelong friendships start here as you discuss the world above and below the waves.
