Recreational scuba diving is a multimillion dollar industry worldwide and is considered one of the fastest growing sports with over 22 million certified divers around the globe.
It’s no wonder why this marine sport is of interest to so many. Where else can you experience the beauty, the majesty, the serenity, the peacefulness found below the ocean’s surface? Where can you experience weightlessness while exploring historic shipwrecks or coral reefs? Where do new discoveries await you every time you dive? Where can you interact with exotic creatures large and small? Where can you witness the diversity of our ocean flora and fauna?
As Jacques Cousteau adequately stated: The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
