When people say a reef is teeming with life, they are not exaggerating! Each coral reef is a living organism and a source of food for almost everything in the ocean. Fish of every imaginable color nibble and graze on the rocks. Small schools reflect the sunlight as they dart and turn, and all just a few feet underneath you! You don’t need any equipment or technical skill if you just want to float above this watery wonderland; with a snorkel you can still dive down a few feet and join them.
For real quality time underwater, you’ll need scuba gear, and scuba diving is an easy sport to learn. Scuba holidays are in the most exotic locations. Imagine diving the Great Barrier Reef in Australia – the world’s largest living structure – or discovering the crystal clear waters of pacific atolls. You just need a mask, a snorkel, and a passion for adventure.
