Summer Is Coming For Diving!

It is the end of May.

We have a long summer time in front. It is a good opportunity to interact with the underwater world. We’ll be able to spend enough time near by the sea.

Why don’t you get wet and jump into the water? You have wait for a long period of time in winter, huh?

Well, if you are planning to explore the underwater world this summer, you got a couple of choices.

Take a cup of coffee, well, if it is starting to get hot in your town like mine, take a glass of cold soda then, relax and see what you can do as a recreation in your summer time.

Let’s take a look at our options to become an underwater explorer.


If you enjoy to see the life in shallow waters and it is okay to stay much of your time on the surface, snorkeling is just for you.

You can start your adventure just by getting a mask, snorkel and fins. That’s it! 

Snorkeling doesn’t cost you much and it is a good way to explore the underwater world by yourself.

You can easily equip, there is no need to mount any equipment. Snorkeling gear is always ready to use.

If you are planning to stay on the water for a couple of hours, you may also want to buy a thin shorty, which will be enough to protect you from possible scratches and loosing body temperature.

Buy a mask, snorkel and fins kit, a shorty if you’d like to and place them in your luggage. That’s it! They are ready to use wherever you go.

You can buy a quality snorkeling kit from

Free Diving

This option is suitable for the ones who are willing to stay under the water a little bit more than snorkelers.

Free diving is the art of staying underwater with our own abilities. It is a good way of meditation and advised for relaxation in your summer holidays.

Free diving may be your life style and you can go on doing it in whole year.

That’s because it is some kind of a challenge. You want to go deeper, stay longer.

As long as you get a proper training and know your own limits, free diving is a fantastic way to explore the underwater world as well as your inner world. 

You’ll need a dive buddy (for safety reasons), proper free diving training and a couple of equipment:

Mask, snorkel, fins (just like snorkeling), a free-diving wet suit and a weight belt.

Our third option, scuba diving is the last point if you want to stay underwater for more than a couple of minutes.

Scuba diving has several golden rules (read: 10 Golden Rules For Scuba Diving) and it is really technical, which needs a qualified proper training from a certified scuba diving trainer.

With any of the scuba diving agencies, your first certification will allow you to dive up to 18 meters with a dive buddy.

A typical scuba dive takes at least half an hour.

You can be an underwater photographer, for example and both enjoy the life under the water and share it with your friends and family, create your own gallery and more! 

Don’t forget to get certified, stay within your own and scuba diving tables limits and always dive with a buddy.


Snorkeling, free diving or scuba diving…

Which ever you choose, you will possibly have a great life time hobby, you won’t sweat in summer like you do in other sports and relax to find your inner peace.

Remember to obey the rules of snorkeling, free diving and scuba diving. 

Always carry a buoy with you in your dives and never dive alone.

Dive. You won’t regret.
