About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Beneath all this water lies a whole new world for most people.

Diving opened up a whole new perspective to my love of nature and the road to gaining my diving certificate had me seeing some amazing wildlife and incredible underwater sceneries. Putting the scenery aside, the experience in itself is quite unique. Breathing under 18 meters of water with ease, no means to communicate with the others just through signs and moving like a slow motion football reply that you see on TV. I could have taken this course back home but the training swimming pool couldn’t have beaten the clear waters and colorful reefs of the Caribbean.
