6 Ways Scuba Divers Rule at Life!

six ways divers rule at life

Being a scuba diver is awesome. You breathe underwater, identify fish and experience weightlessness on every vacation. You have designated yourself as an ocean activist, and you’re well on your way to achieving Master Scuba Diver. Being the scuba diver in your group of friends is a big responsibility, but you handle it with grace and ease.

Did you know that as a scuba diver, you’ve developed skills that also make you rule at life? It’s true!

Here are six areas where divers rule because of their savvy scuba skills:

#1 – You know how to go with the flow literally and figuratively

The resistance of water forces us to slow everything down.

Divers rule because we know: Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to, when that happens act slowly and deliberately and don’t fight forces of nature.

#2 – You’re better at communicating

Whether it’s with hand signals or flashlights, we are constantly checking in with a buddy. The more you dive the more you learn how to identify a diver in distress.

Divers rule because we know: Communication is important to any relationship. Divers know the importance of checking-in to let your partner know you’re OK.

#3 – You’re brave

Breathing underwater is an unnatural act for humans. After proper training you learn to trust your equipment and your instructor.

Divers rule because we know: A new experience once thought to be scary isn’t so bad after education and practice.

#4 – You know how to prioritize

Three outfits for a 7-day trip? No problem. Equipment that gives you a memorable experience takes precedence over looking good.

Divers rule because we know: Happiness means prioritizing experiences. Making memories that last a lifetime is far more important that superficial stuff.

#5 – You know how to get things done

Every diver knows to begin their dive against the current.

Divers rule because we know: Getting the hard part out of the way first will mean having the time and space to relax later.

#6 – You learn to play well with others

Scuba divers bond together by their shared experience. The scuba diving community creates a sense of camaraderie.

Divers rule because we know: Everyone wants to be part of a community. Divers have a way to bond with others outside of family and work.

world oceans day

Seahorses aren’t just unique in their looks. They’re unusual among fish because they’re monogamous – they mate for life!

They also swim “upright,” fluttering a small fin on their back up to 35x per second.

Several species are vulnerable to extinction, so show them some love by not buying products made from seahorses.

World Oceans Day is celebrated around the world every June 8th. Join in! Visit http://www.WorldOceansDay.org/ to download materials & find events near you!

Malasimbo Festival in Puerto Galera

malasimbo festival puerto galera

Against a clean night sky stippled with stars, colored lights dance on spindly palm trees while an eclectic play list happily echoes across a the best natural amphitheater you’ve ever heard. It’s the Malasimbo Music and Arts festival where the aural and visual conspire to conjure an atmosphere conducive to serious grooving.

Down here at Big La Laguna, the home of Scandi Divers and Campbell’s Beach Resort, we eagerly anticipate the early March event. This is the fifth time Mount Malasimbo has summoned its kaleidoscope of artists, musicians, DJ’s, travel-set hipsters, Pinoy locals, Asean cognicenti and a handful of very fortunate vacationers and divers to Mount Malasimbo.

Together with other forward-thinking music confabs like the Rainforest World Music Festival in Kuchin, Malaysia or Music Matters Live in Singapore; the Philippines’ music festival is making some serious noise both as a tremendous venue for established and emergent talent and as a showcase for Oriental Mindoro’s natural beauty and outdoor attractions: scuba diving (very close to our hearts), snorkeling, biking, hiking and island hopping.

Each year Malasimbo has expanded and improved the event. Last year, with Robert Glaspar headlining the show, the event added cashless payment for food and drink inside the venue. This year with This year the event organizers added a second event called Lights and Dance focusing on dance and Lightshow featuring James Brown’s former band leader Fred Wesley, Australia’s Tom Thum and reggae giant Bob Marley’s son, Ky-Mani Marley.

Beyond the music and art, what makes the festival great is that the event is dedicated the preservation of the indigenous Mangyan villages and eco-protection of Mindoro Oriental through its partnership with the French organization Noe’ Conservation.

Sound good? Then start planning early to join Malasimbo in early March, 2016 and stay with us at Scandi or Campbell’s to catch a few dives during the day and head up the mountain for a spectacular music show at night.
