With the buddy diving system, trust in your dive busy is a necessity to insure your security underwater dive after dive you will develop a stronger relationship of trust with your dive partner and while you gain confidence in your dive buddy and he gains confidence in you, you will have better confidence in yourself too !
4/ Healing effects of salty water and sun on skin and bones E
Seawater is particularly beneficial to the skin, increasing its elasticity and improving its outer appearance. At the same time, sunlight gives a boost to your vitamin D levels that are essential for the absorption of calcium in the bones to make them healthier and stronger. Vitamin D does not only increase the rate of absorption of calcium, it also helps the cells pass calcium to each other. This higher absorption rate of calcium helps to keep the bones healthy and strong. Exposure to sunlight also helps to increase endorphin production within our brains, which generates feelings of joy and happiness.
5/ Diving is a great way to socialise
I don't know about you but I'm all sweaty at the gym I'm not really in a mood for a chat... While I love to talk about the shared experience with my dive buddy after every dive and I made so many friends on dive cruises!
