Recent researches have shown that diving helps divers derive happiness and long-term satisfaction. Improving your skills and virtues in an activity you like can help boost your well-being. Diving can improve your sense of well-being as it enables you to learn more about yourself, other people and the underwater environment around you. There are  Five Major Benefits of Diving:

1- Increase the Knowledge of the Sea

Diving offers many opportunities for divers to increase their knowledge of the sea. This knowledge starts with learning how to dive and continues with improving diving skills after the initial qualification. Also, diving enables divers to know a lot about underwater. This knowledge can help a diver know how to be comfortable under the sea. Diving also helps a diver to know about the unique and marvelous marine life he comes across.

2- Diving Gives A Diver the Opportunity to Travel

Traveling is a good way to increase knowledge and skills through cultural emersion and new experiences. Traveling also results in positive experiences. According to research, positive experiences helps a person get “the good life”.

3- Divers are More Likely to Protect the Environment

People who like diving are more likely to be environmentally aware and undertake pro-environmental behaviors. Apart from protecting the underwater world, divers also protect the environment they live in as they know the importance of caring for the natural environment.

4- Promotes Personal Growth

Diving promotes personal growth as divers share experiences with other divers, bond with fellow divers and what academics refer to as “serious leisure” (leisure activities that promote self-expression, self-enrichment, self-actualization, rediscovering or recreating yourself, creating social connections and a feeling of belonging).

To participate in these activities, a person needs special knowledge, skills, and proper training. People who participate in serious-leisure activities can reach a point where the activity they participate in becomes a central point of their lives and they may start strongly identifying with the activity. I am sure that most of us consider the diving possibility when choosing a travel destination.

5- Creating a Community

As a diver, the friendships you create with your fellow divers will help you grow. Diving helps divers create shared experiences, learn from one another and get out of their comfort zone. Diving together also helps divers grow as families. Research has proven that positive experiences such as socializing and learning are so great that they outweigh negative experiences like poor visibility and bad weather conditions.
