Scuba diving is safe..the gear, that weighs almost 14kgs ensures that no matter what happens, you will be safe. Once you are in the water, the 14kgs is reduced to mere “Weightlessness” due to the law of physics.

As a beginner, the most important rule is that you should listen to your instructor. you might be an expert swimmer but remember scuba diving is in open water and it is extremely different from what you do in swimming pool. Hence, it is always wise to follow the instructions. Anybody above 8yrs of age can consider Scuba diving. Enjoy Scuba, breathe in, breathe out and stay calm. The silence is priceless.

In para sailing, a rope about 300 feet long is attached to the parasail harness and the other end is attached firmly to a speedboat. As the speedboat zooms off into the ocean, the sailor is hauled up in the air. Since the sailor is firmly attached to the rope, he has little or no control over the chute. The speedboat controls the momentum and height and the person flying the parasail controls the parasail sideways. One can take pleasure of viewing the clear skies and the stunningly magnificent aquamarine water below while para sailing.
