Here are our 5 Tips to Escape Stress And Go For A SCUBA Dive
- Get a Dive Buddy, someone who feels as passionate about SCUBA diving as you do
Finding a dive buddy is not hard, sometimes you just end up on a boat and get chatting to someone. If you can’t get on the boat due to work and other daily activities, finding someone in your local area who feels the same way about diving is also a great way to find a buddy. Having a buddy who spends a lot of time in the water, might help you to put some time aside so that you can join them. An even better option is to find more than one dive buddy, which might provide more of an opportunity for you to schedule a dive and also avoid disappointment when your buddy is unavailable, but you are.
