Sure, scuba diving hundreds of feet underwater sounds a little scary, but the amazing payoff of seeing marine life up close is totally worth it. “Scuba diving is an exhilarating, lifelong sport,” says Theresa Kaplan, a certified PADI diver and director for communications & PADI Diving. To get your feet wet, she recommends first-time divers sign up for a Discover Scuba Diving course at a local dive shop. There you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in a quick and easy pool introduction, then get to dive with a certified instructor and breathe underwater for the first time.
