For those of you who enjoy taking a break from the regular monotonous routine and seek to do something different, something adventurous, how about planning a diving vacation with your loves ones? Sounds interesting, right? Just imagine, visiting some of the wonderful holiday destinations like Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Australia or for that matter even New Zealand and taking a dip in some of their exotic beaches and witnessing the hidden beauty lying miles below. Who would want to miss such a holiday? So if you are also planning to take your loves ones to a memorable diving holiday, there are few things which you must take a mental note of.
Plan your trip wisely
If this is your first vacation in the last few years and for which you have saving money, then you can go in for some really exotic and slightly on the higher range destinations like the ones in and around Europe, Australia, Brazil, New Zealand etc. However, if you don’t have enough time as well as funds to spare, then locations in Asia, like Thailand, Indonesia etc are other good options for you to explore. A good idea here will be to first check the internet and to find out all possible destination options, the coral reefs which they have and pick the ‘right’ one for you!
Pack your bags with the correct clothes
This stands true in case of any other kind of vacation. Always bear in mind the purpose for which you will be travelling and pack your bags with clothes suiting that purpose. For instance, now you are planning on going for a diving vacation, so ideally your bag must contain lot of t-shirts, shorts, skirts. Carrying warm clothes like coats, jackets, sweaters etc will be a bad option as beaches are known to be not cold. In addition to this, you must also carry along with you sufficient number of undergarments, just in case you plan to play in the water for long! In addition to clothes, make sure you also carry your swimming costume, speedo, swimming goggles etc. Divers must carry their diving suits as well! In case you don’t have it, try taking it on rent.
Complementing the clothes should be your footwear. Carry sandals, floaters and such other comfortable footwear on vacations especially where you plan to walk more.
Prevention is better than cure!
So the destination has been decided, and the bags are also packed! Aren’t you forgetting something? Travel essentials and accessories! Many travel websites will not tell you this but usually beaches attract lot of worms, mosquitoes and such other insects. Hence, make sure you carry good quality insect repellents. Do pack this on top priority! Besides this, also carry a first aid kit which contains some band aids, some ointment, cotton swabs etc. Good quality camera, binoculars and ample stock of good sun block cream are some of the other things which must find a place in your bag as well!
With all these essentials in your kitty, be rest assured that you will indeed have a whale of a time on your diving vacation!
