“Diving…is an active, physical form of meditation. It’s so silent – you’re like a thought.”– Jerry Garcia
People who don’t scuba dive are missing out. In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association states on its website, “The ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth’s surface and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored.”
This means a vast portion of the earth remains undiscovered by humans. Basically, these areas are anywhere a body of water is found. I’m talking about the world that exists under the surface of rivers, lakes, and ponds that are located in anyone’s hometown or region.
Most people don’t see these areas worth exploring, but I beg to differ. Scuba diving offers an opportunity to find valuable items, or (at the very least) the chance to explore a fascinating world. Several rivers and lakes in my area have sunken bridges, abandoned cars, and interesting rock formations. I bet that your rivers and lakes will have similar underwater landscapes too.
Remember, only a scuba diver will witness first hand these wonders that rests below the water’s surface. With that said, A Crow’s View encourages people to get a scuba certification and start enjoying Earth’s hidden realm.
