You are single and you want to engage in a sport and / or leisure activity without knowing which one ?

On the other hand, you love the sea, want to try to practice outdoor sports and meeting people?

Why not explore the possibility of scuba diving?

I have analyzed for you 10 good reasons to go without hesitation.

Discover the concept of buddy

Diving is an activity that is not practiced alone. The buddy is the person with whom you will evolve.

The ultimate activity where you will have to learn to collaborate and trust others, diving can be ideal for singles. Whether it’s for a helping hand, a material check, a dive mask setting or to ensure your safety in case of a glitch, every opportunity is good to train to “rely on the other “. A very useful skill that changes from “counting only on oneself”.

In addition, diving makes it possible to learn to communicate with the other … without speaking! Not bad as an asset, is it?

Work on your fitness

While it is sometimes customary to think that diving is a leisure that requires no effort, one hour of diving makes it cost up to 600 calories. As much as if you play football or tennis and more than dancing, swimming or downhill skiing! Incredible, right? No wonder when we know that the body will draw in its reserves to keep at the right temperature. Because, despite wearing a dive suit, the body cools 25 times faster in water than in air. In addition, diving is accompanied at least by a fitness, at best a parallel sports training to stay in good physical condition. This doubles your interest in your fitness.

Take advantage of not having to share his material

The advantage of diving when you are single is that your material belongs to you and no one else. No need to share your hardware, at the risk of not finding it when you need it.

On the other hand, you will not be able to take it to yourself even if your diving equipment is not in its place and / or not properly maintained (on this subject go quickly to read these tips)

Pleasantly occupying his time

One of the advantages of going solo is to be able to dispose of your time without compromise or concessions. Rather than procrastinating in front of the TV, occupying one’s time by outdoor physical activity can be a very interesting alternative. The advantage here is to counterbalance the disadvantage “diving takes a lot of time so it is difficult to reconcile with the activities of his or her partner” with a mind closer to “diving allows me to use Long time slots to spend, meet other people and make me happy “.

Going to meet others

Diving is an activity that promotes sociability and broadens its knowledge network. Divers love to talk about diving gear, diving trips, diving cruises, diving holidays, … in short, their favorite leisure.

It is a community of people open to meeting others that you will discover. Perfect for breaking isolation

Moreover, it is customary to share a moment together after the dives to exchange experiences, to have a drink or to gather around a brazier.

Developing a sense of exploration

Divers are explorers in the soul, but in a very different way from what is generally imagined. While the rest of the world travels by discovering the diversity of our beautiful planet on the mainland, diving enthusiasts explore the world beneath the seas and oceans.

When we know that more than 70% of the earth is covered with fresh and salt water, it makes discoveries a countless experience.


Increase self-confidence

Scuba diving is a special activity for humans. Indeed, the aquatic world is not our natural environment. Getting your head under water the first time, venturing to meet sharks, learn how to manage your diving gear, how to navigate in seas that are sometimes cold … all opportunities to develop self-confidence and management of stress.

Multiply the chances of finding a soul mate who shares his passion

Evolving in diving is, as said above, a great opportunity to expand its network. As a result, you also very clearly increase the chances of meeting a partner who will share the same dreams … which make it  much easier to manage all the other points outlined above.
