Diving is an amazingly addictive sport for a variety of reasons. To start with, it is the sheer uniqueness of the underwater world – being absolutely weightless and moving in a 3-dimensional space is something that is very alien to us ground-dwellers, and is the closest we can come to flying. Add to that being surrounded by significant amounts of marine life, in quantities and diversity that is orders of magnitude higher than on land (seeing a hundred species and some thousand individual fish on a dive is not uncommon). And there you have it- a recipe for a magical experience that is totally unlike anything on land!
Back when I started Diveindia, to say that diving was an unknown sport would be an understatement. I’ve had someone ask me “how do your divers see the fish? Do you have a glass bottom boat”. To say that the sport has grown since then is an understatement. Most people today are aware of what the sport entails – and quite a lot of people have actually tried it out as well. As the market continues to develop and mature, I hope that the trend is towards an in-depth scuba experience, which allows people to experience the serenity and jaw-dropping wonders of the underwater environment.
To celebrate 16 years of DIVEIndia, more than a decade of phenomenal diving and making magical underwater memories, we bring you our very own #LetsDIVEIndia Contest!
