Why Is Whitsunday Diving So Popular?
This is a question that a lot of tourists ask. The truth is that it is very hard to answer without actually going scuba diving because this is truly a unique experience. We have to say that Whitsunday diving is a once in a lifetime experience for many tourists. Those that live in the area will get a chance to dive many times but many of the tourists do not have this luxury.
Getting back to the subject at hand, there are many reasons that can be mentioned. The Whitsunday area is made up of 74 islands located inside the Great Barrier Reef, a world heritage listed marine park. Both Whitsunday and Queensland diving are attractive due to the scenery that you gain access to under water. It is a completely new world that cannot be experienced properly without scuba diving experience.
All of us at the Whitsunday Diving Academy are in love with diving so we can say that we are totally subjective. Since we wanted to know exactly why diving in Queensland is so popular, we asked our students and as many people as we could find to tell us why they love scuba diving in the Whitsundays. The most common reasons that we received are highlighted below:
The Underwater World Is Breathtaking
Every single person that we talked to told us that the diving Queensland experience was unique and that the underwater world was simply breathtaking. There is basically no way to argue with that. Just take a look at the pictures and videos of people diving in the area. You will notice that beauty and consider the fact that it is a lot more attractive in real life. There is something about the blue waters and scenery that is found that is magical.
Diving Lessons Are Affordable
It is a shame to see that some people do not want to learn diving because of the false belief that classes are very expensive. That is not the case. Our courses are very affordable and we even offer a free Discover Scuba experience that you can take advantage of if you never tried diving in the past. You will quickly realise when you breathe under water for the first time what a delight it is to swim under water without having to come up for air. Scuba diving certification opens a whole new world and is a small investment with a huge return.
Huge Diving Diversity Offered
There is no limit to Whitsunday scuba diving in terms of what you can experience. Many say that they would get bored to simply swim with the fish but that is definitely not the case. In reality, you will surely not get bored and you will want to do it again and again. This is exactly what our students tell us so do not take our word for it, ask them and you will receive the same answer.
If you want to get the most out of your scuba diving, there are various specialty courses that we offer right now at highly affordable prices. You can basically make every single diving session unique and you can learn everything about how to experience the underwater world. We will teach you everything that you need to know from how to identify fish and teach you all about the coral reef to how to take digital photographs underwater and how to dive at night so that you can experience another world, totally different than the one you see while diving during the day. There is basically no reason why you should not try scuba diving. Come to a free class, register so that your spot is guaranteed and see why diving is popular by experiencing it!
