Where else but on a diving holiday can you spend midnight on New Year's Eve 12 metres underwater trying to get the cork out of a bottle of fizzy grape juice (no drinking and diving!) Then trying to drink from it without swallowing too much sea water or choking because you are giggling so much?
Singapore is probably the best place in the world to be a diver because there are so many of the world's best dive sites (reasonably) close. On a dive trip you can see everything from the really big to the really small. But do get some experience under your belt before you try drinking fizzy drinks underwater!
I am definitely not macho, definitely not very fit and DEFINITELY not a mermaid but that doesn’t stop me getting in the water….. After over 600 dives each, my husband and I are definitely hooked! Come to a meeting and see what it's all about. Then join us to experience the magic.
Our family learned to dive together on a holiday to Turkey and I would recommend learning together as it's a great way of doing something interesting and exciting with your teenage children. Children have to be 12 years or older, be reasonably comfortable in the water and demonstrate that they can swim 200m in swimwear. Qualification consists of some theory, some shallow water exercises and some deeper water exercises to become certified as a diver.
