there lies some of scuba diving's appeal: There's always
time to relax. It doesn't matter if you're a type-A personality
who could bike or hike or work for 16 hours straight. When
you're scuba diving, the laws of human physiology say you've
got to limit your time underwater or you'll suffer from
decompression. So ... bring a good novel, and be ready to
dive, too. Under the waves, you'll discover a surreal world
of infinite variety: strange corals and stranger fish, giant
clams with florescent lips and undulating purple sponges, lazy
sharks and gangly sea-turtles.
are two ways to enjoy a scuba diving vacation. A land-based
dive trip generally allows fewer dives (usually 2-3 a day; more
if shore diving is available), and more time for other activities.
If you're new to this sport, a land-based package gives you the
serious divers, a live-aboard dive boat offers more time to
do what you love best. You can typically dive five times a day
from a live-aboard, sometimes even more if you watch your decompression
times. Don't worry. You'll still have time for that novel.
