4 Reasons to Become a Professional Diver

professional diver

 Bored at work? Does the movie ‘Office Space’ sound more like your documentary than anything? If yes, you’ll often find yourself staring out the window, wishing for adventure and travel, right? If you’re thinking of turning your scuba diving passion into a full-fledged profession, read on. Becoming a PADI Divemaster or Instructor is an awesome way to start an exciting career that will help you break loose from the 9 to 5 grind.

1. You’ll become physically fit

While diving alone wouldn’t keep us physically fit, it offers a plethora of benefits for our bodies. In fact, science has proved that diving increases the muscles’ flexibility and strength, improves blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, and even burns calories. An hour of shore diving can burn as much as 600 calories—just like jogging, except that diving isn’t as boring.

2. You’ll benefit from long-lasting job security

The job of a professional diver will never become obsolete. But why is this such a secure career choice? Because not everyone knows how to do it. It’s not something that can be sent overseas or outsourced. With many individuals opting for the conventional four-year college degree, skilled trade and service workers are becoming quite scarce and valuable. By opting for professional diving as your career, you’re not just guaranteeing yourself job security but also becoming a valuable commodity.

3. You’ll discover a whole new world

Whether your dream is to become a photographer, explorer, marine biologist, archaeologist, or all of the above, having a career in diving can fulfill the majority of your passions. The ocean covers 70% of the earth’s surface and is a never-ending playground. So, marvel at kaleidoscopic coral cities, hover over history-steeped wrecks, and see the most fascinating, beautiful creatures you never knew existed—with diving, there’s always something fun to explore!

4. You’ll get out of your comfort zone

There’s nothing natural about breathing underwater. Plus, you’ll be working with a diverse group of people and in a variety of settings. By being a professional diver, you’ll be consistently pushing your limits and be willing to try out new things.
