Did you know that Colorado has the highest concentration of certified scuba divers per capita than any other state in the US? Yes, this is the landlocked, mountainous state that’s best known for skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to scuba dive but didn’t know where to start, or are looking to expand your current scuba diving knowledge base, then this guide is for you!
Once of the best things I learned during the time I was accruing my various scuba diving certificates is that there are many ways you can make a living with your diving skills and knowledge, and not just as an instructor.
There’s no doubt that snorkeling and scuba diving are some of the best ways we can appreciate both the beauty and fragility of the oceans and the marine life they hold.
Choosing eco-friendly, sustainable brands is just one of the many ways that you can be an eco-conscious diver. Thankfully, more and more companies and non-profits are joining the market every day, with the shared mission of protecting our oceans, preserving marine wildlife, and educating their consumers about how they can live and explore sustainably.
While starting your scuba certification journey is fairly straightforward, the actual process takes time, commitment, and a level of physical fitness that ensures your safety (remember: scuba diving is classified as an extreme sport and accidents do happen).
Diving is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences I’ve ever pursued, and it’s something that I’m constantly trying to learn more about. That’s why I’ve decided to do a blogging series about scuba diving.
