Fun facts about diving
Did you know that underwater sound travels 5 times faster?! This makes it almost impossible to know where the sound is coming from. Also, while looking at things underwater, they tend to be 33% larger and appear 25% closer due to light refraction phenomena, so imagine how big you must appear to the fish! What’s even more amusing is that once you get below 10 meters deep, you can neither see the color red nor yellow!

Caution
– After your dive, you must avoid taking the plane for at least 24 hours.
– You must not be under the influence of alcohol.
– Diving is not recommended for pregnant women.
