Instructor you choose for your scuba dive is likely to be who is younger

It is a common belief that to learn about sports while we’re young, because your body’s tissues are resistant to bumps and bruises that can affect us as we begin to learn an entirely new sport. This is certainly true to a certain degree.

scuba diving on Hawaii

For instance, I have my experience with windsurfing. I started learning the sport at age 26 years old. If I was to take up the sport at 42, it is likely that I’d not be able to do much and most likely give up after just a couple of tries. It was like fighting all forces at the same at the same time! It’s about balancing on turbulent waves on slippery wet boards while managing a sail that is heavier than your body in the right direction you wish to go.In the course of my learning I injected to the blood and flesh of injuries to barnacles, and bruises caused by hitting the surfboard multiple times before falling into the ocean.

However, there is a significant distinction between scuba diving and other forms of diving. You are never too old to start learning SCUBA DIVING. I cannot stress this enough. I began diving when I was 38. Although I’m not saying 38 is an old age but , nevertheless, your body may feel less strong and less durable. In addition as we age it is also apparent that we feel more scared. Maybe we think we’re at risk in the event that something happens to us.

I would say that middle age and above shouldn’t be the only factor to consider when learning about Scuba diving, but you need these things:

1.) an intense passion for the ocean

2.) an openness to study with someone less experienced than you.

3.) generally good health , and then crucially

4.) Time and Money

Let me guess that you’re considering taking a dive course because you’d like to make this something you take part in every weekend, If time and finances permit instead of just learning to improve your education.

A deep love for the Sea

For a great dive trip it is necessary to enjoy the sea. I’m not just talking about love for it, with all its beautiful creatures, both small and large. You’ll be able to understand what I am talking about when you go when you go on your first dive trip once you’ve passed all of your Open Water tests.

It is not likely that your scuba-diving buddies during your first dive trip are the same as the ones you met during your scuba diving class. Due to time and budget restrictions, you’ll discover that you are the only person who is keen enough to sign up for an scuba diving excursion immediately after you have earned the certificate.

The majority of the time your dive buddies are a group of divers who do at least four dives per during the day, and another in the evening. That means that during the dive typically, you’ll be doing nothing but dive, chat about the marine creatures and experiences that you encounter on each dive, and then taking off for your next dive. If you are looking to dive for a single day, and then shop and then go out for a night out, they might be disappointed because a lot of great diving destinations have a few of these entertainment and shopping facilities.

If you’re stressing over this, don’t worry. Every newbie scuba diver experiences this. Simply adopt the attitude of a beginner, be humble and you will see that the experienced divers are always willing to share their tips and even assist you in preparing for the dive.

The Willingness to Learn from someone younger than you

The instructor you choose for your scuba dive is likely to be who is younger than you. Divers with a bad attitude may have a personality and are self-confident, and you’ll need to bear it for at minimum 3 weekends before becoming certified. The first weekend is for theory and classroom sessions second weekend for pool training and a third weekend for the actual open water test. Set aside your pride and accept it and it will pay off at the end of the day.

That said, it’s not to say there aren’t any excellent and friendly Scuba diving instructors in the. I was lucky enough to have instruction from PC A very caring and patient instructor who, without whom my dive learning experience wouldn’t have been as enjoyable and smooth.
