3 Reasons Why You Should Get Scuba Certified Abroad

Scuba diving is among the most magical experiences in the world. And while getting certified can happen just about anywhere, why not check it off your bucket list during a stay at Fort Young Hotel? Below, find just a few of the many reasons why you should add a scuba certification course to your travel itinerary while globetrotting.

Truly Explore Your Destination

By getting scuba certified abroad, you are able to make a deeper connection to the place you are staying. You can get to know the waters better and learn this amazing skill, all while exploring some of the most amazing marine life in the world. Plus, in a tropical location like Dominica, you are able to learn from some of the best divers. Here, you’ll have a trained expert providing you with the best, most effective scuba training there is.

Make Amazing Memories

Your vacation becomes even more special when you add a new permanent addition to your personal skillset in a new location. Years from now, you will be able to look back and say, “remember when we got certified in Dominica?” It’s something that can carry weight forever—becoming an everlasting fixture in your memories.

Save Some Money

In some situations, you can save money by getting scuba certified abroad. If you come from a place where you are either surrounded by land or there are few active professionals in your immediate area, the cost to get certified can be high. Because of the currency change and the vast availability of scuba dive instructors in Dominica, the prices can be much less. This, combined with the benefits above, can make for a truly valuable experience.
