The Coastal Path in Antalya – Scuba

Given they are only 10, I was quite proud of the children when they said they wanted to do a scuba diving course.

Scuba DivingOf course, this was only an introductory course in the hotel swimming pool.  They are not yet old enough for open water diving.  Ben in particular enjoyed himself and was most upset to find he would have to wait a few more years to advance any further in the sport.  He is talking about diving around the coast of Britain instead of walking it.  Given the number of estuaries we have to make inland detours round, this may not be such a bad idea…

  1. That’s such a great thing for them to learn how to do [I wish I felt comfortable just snorkelling…]

    Yes, given that they had never snorkled before I was quite impressed!

    Are you a scuba diver? They look like they’re having a wonderful time. I prefer to be above water but I do hope to snorkel among some brilliantly colorful reefs someday. We do have a great scuba site here in New Mexico: Blue Hole (http://www.santarosanm.org/scubadiving.htm). It’s quite popular.

      Hi Jody – I did an open water course about 14 years ago and really enjoyed it, but for various reasons didn’t continue with it. I’d love to go back to it some day, particularly if the kids want to take it back up again. Snorkeling among the reefs sounds good to me too! Nic

    Tell them to be careful – I messed up my ear scuba diving 😦
