Underwater Tourism - October 2018
“Often known as the ‘rainforests of the sea’, some of the world’s most spectacular and fascinating landscapes can be found underwater on coral reefs, which account for just 0.1% of the seabed yet support 25% of all marine life. Wrecks and reefs are common destinations for a global community of active divers keen to immerse themselves with the unique life underwater and there is a vast range of diving holidays on the market that range from dive resorts, liveaboards and ad-hoc, one-off dive experiences. However, there is more to underwater tourism, and the challenge of constructing hotels and buildings underwater endures while niche activities such as shark diving and SNUBA [‘snorkel’ and ‘scuba’] are supporting growth of the industry. New technologies have emerged that help make diving safer and the development of high-tech submarine tourism offers great potential for a safe, yet sustainable method of exploring the underwater world.”
