Whether you are living in or visiting San Diego, you have the opportunity to become scuba certified. There are few places in the world where this is an option, and being in San Diego I think it is something everyone should take advantage of!
On a recent trip to Thailand, I did a “discover dive” and instantly fell in love with the sport. Upon my arrival back to San Diego, I instantly got a group of friends together and we are all becoming certified. It is an experience you really cannot convey…you just have to do it for yourself. You are immersed into a whole new world, and scuba diving is really the only way to truly experience this sect of the earth’s diversity. It is an extremely calming experience, as you lose all forms of standard communication when you are underwater and all you can hear is the sea life around you.
If you are interested in becoming certified, check out San Diego Ocean Enterprises. They have every sort of scuba class you could think of, whether you are a beginning and want to just go out for a day, or whether you already have a certification and want to get your advanced certification or take Divemaster courses. Become certified and use your certification to dive all over the world, wherever your travels may lead you!
