Learn to dive: what’s stopping you?

Try the the scuba Cardiff experience rivals anything you’ll find abroad.

Variety is the spice of life, as they say. There are certain things that you know

are going to be fantastic but for some reason you’ve always kept putting

them off. Some people have their own ‘bucket list’ – a mental rundown of

experiences they would like to try while there’s still time, but getting round to

ticking the items off the list is often another story! Scuba diving often features

prominently on such lists. The possibility of exploring a whole new underwater

world; getting close up to sea creatures and moving freely over a completely

unfamiliar sub-aqua terrain. It’s certainly enticing. So what’s putting you off?

Scuba diving is easier, cheaper and more accessible than you think. If you’ve

always fancied having a go, there really is nothing to stopping you!

It’s time to dispel three of the most frequently-encountered myths that stop too many people taking the plunge, and here they are:

 

“Scuba-diving is only for abroad”

Wrong. Here in the UK, we’re blessed with countless locations for scuba

diving. After all wherever you are in the UK, you’re never more than a couple

hours drive away from the sea and most of us are a lot closer than that! The

range of sites is amazing and we have thousands of miles of coastline dotted

with reefs and shore beds of all different varieties. These locations are home

to a spectacular array of marine life – from native crustaceans, impressive

anemones and spectacular shoals of fish right through to seals, sea-otters,

whales and even sharks. Also, if wrecks are what attract you, our rich

maritime history ensures you’re spoilt for choice. South Wales is no exception

to this. Thanks to being on the doorstep of hundreds of miles of stunning

Heritage Coast, you can guarantee that the scuba Cardiff experience rivals

anything you’ll find abroad.

 

“You have to be super-fit to scuba dive”

Wrong. Scuba diving is a universal sport and is enjoyed by children as young

as ten right through to people who’ve been diving for 60 or more years! In

fact, it’s the ideal family activity and is a great way to keep fit. You can be

introduced gently to it as well to make sure that when you do take to the open

sea, you’ll be doing so with full back-up. Firstly, an instructor will make sure

you fully understand the theoretical side of things before getting the basic

technique right in a pool setting. Very quickly, you’ll find that scuba diving

becomes second nature and when you do venture into open water, you’ll be

able to do so with complete confidence.

 

“Scuba diving is expensive.”

Wrong. You don’t have to shell out on hundreds of pounds worth of kit in

order to learn how to scuba dive. For one thing, it’s possible to hire out

equipment at incredibly attractive rates. What you probably want to do first of

all is to try and get a feel for the sport and a  scuba diving taster course

at Ocean Quest is the ideal way of doing that. Once you finally dive in, the

chances are that you’ll be hooked.
