Common Myths in the World of Diving That You Probably Shouldn’t Listen Too

Even the things that most of the population understand are surrounded by myths.  Even HVAC services like my friends Josh and Jimmy provided at probably have a dozen myths surrounding their industry which drive them nuts.  Not everyone is intimately familiar with diving so that ends up making the myths simply worse.

It’s very easy to believe in myth because everyone has written content on the internet that’s not backed up by sources or factual information.  People are simply used to written facts, with multiple reliable sources on things such as newspapers, and it would be reliable.

Jobs in the Industry for People Who Love to Dive

If you’re a person who enjoys diving, then, by all means, you should be diving as often as possible, and doing what you can to make even more fun for yourself every time.  For those who want to take it to a more extreme level, then you should consider trying to monetize it while you’re having fun anyway.

I chose it as a hobby for myself and don’t monetize it with any sort of job in diving because I feel like it could spoil it for me a little.  They say that if you do what you love for a living that you won’t work a day in your life, but I don’t believe in that whole-heartedly. 

I think that work usually consists of doing something that someone else doesn’t want to do because it’s no fun.  Monetizing the things you love to do in your free time I can certainly agree would make work a lot easier, however. Continue reading “Jobs in the Industry for People Who Love to Dive”

Great Places to Dive

Like I’ve previously stated before, there are some incredible sites to see, and experience for yourself wherever there is water.

I’m not the only person who has recognized this fact, and I’m certainly not the first.  Diving is a passionate hobby for me, but it’s considered a sport.  Just like any other sport, there are people out there in the world that dedicate their lives to it.  Some more than others, but there are definitely many of them out there that make their living doing the thing they love.

Also similar to any other sport, there are many more people that envy the professionals, myself included.  Envious hobbyists such as myself still contribute though by sharing our experiences, and even our photos with the rest of the world.  With those come locations with amazing stories behind them that you wish, you could have told yourself.  If I could find a taxi that could take me to each one, then I would open up a new credit card for it immediately.

What It’s Like to Go Diving

A lot of people want to know what it’s like to go diving, and it’s not a simple answer by any means.  As much money, and time I put into the idea of scuba diving, I would want to know what it’s like before actually doing it as well.  In reality, now that I think about it, I really did want to know exactly what is was going to be like.

Your imagination can be an absolutely wonderful world where everything is perfect, and all of your greatest dreams are fulfilled.  Unfortunately, your imagination is just that, your imagination.  By any stretch I am absolutely not saying that diving is not great, I think it’s the greatest activity I’ve put myself too, and there isn’t a bad thing I could say about it.

How to Get Started with Diving

Diving, just like everything else in life, is an investment.  However, it’s an investment in your personal life, and joy, so how much you get in return is up to you.  With just a bit of money, and the desire to explore the wonders of the water, you too can experience the same joys I have in diving.

Of course, since you’ll be swimming under water for an extended amount of time, it does take a bit of fitness, but not a whole lot.  Obviously, the more fit you are, the better you’re going to feel once you’re done.  Personally, I wasn’t very fit on my first dive, and my body completely melted after I was done for the day from all of that swimming in the water. 

You’ll be happy to hear though that it isn’t that kind of experience while you’re in the water.  I’m not sure if it’s just the effect of being underwater or the adrenaline of having such a good time, but you don’t feel anything other than absolutely fantastic down there.
