With the summer approaching quickly and lots of holidays booked, I’m sure some people are jetting off to exotic waters to relax and enjoy some quiet time. If you’re heading to warmer climes and thinking of doing some diving, who better to share the memories with than your family?
There are so many things for families to do over a weekend; visit the park, go on a bike ride, watch a film at the cinema to name just a few obvious choices. However, if you and your family are all qualified divers, the list of destinations and things to do becomes almost endless! Why not travel to the coast and do a day’s diving, followed by an afternoon exploration of the local area and a meal on your way home? All being certified also adds another dimension to foreign holidays.
Scuba diving lets your family get involved in nature and explore the world beneath the seas! Instead of parents trying to find time on holiday to fit a dive in, why not all scuba dive together?
From the age of 10, anyone can enrol on the PADI Open Water Diver course. The requirements are the same whether the student is 13 or 73 so everyone can complete the course elements at the same time and study at home together. There are a couple of restrictions with regards to depth for junior divers but there is more than enough to see in the first 12m of water!
