It is the most peaceful place to be

Diving is a great way to get away from all the noise, traffic, and trouble in the world. As soon as you descend into the waters you hear nothing but your own underwater breathing.

There is no talking, no phones ringing, all communication is via hand signals. When you are below the surface you completely forget what happens on land, and what keeps you busy. During that hour that you are underwater, there is only you and your thoughts.

You can swim without restrictions in diving

Snorkeling is a great way to see what's going on underwater. Although not being able to breathe underwater requires you to come back to the surface each time to breathe. This limits you, since you cannot stay underwater for long and therefore you cannot go very deep either.

Diving allows you to move freely underwater and makes you feel that you are part of the marine life.

Another great thing is that diving is the closest thing to flying. The fact that you don't have to deal with gravity makes you feel like you're weightless and flying into the blue.
