Always limit your personal and grooming stuff and keep it about 15-20KGs. anything beyond that would prove disastrous when you are planning for long treks. Carry water bottle filled and some energy drinks along so that you can keep sipping them during your walk.

Scuba Diving

In modern days Scuba Diving is so advanced that you don’t even have to know swimming at all. It’s only that you will take some initial longer time to get the body balance.

In Scuba Diving you go underwaters and keep moving along across the coral reefs and experiencing the fish. You are given Scuba Diving equipment for breathing like Oxygen cylinders, breathing equipment and Body fins for balance.

Two things to note while Scuba Diving is about the ear pain and the breathing rhythm. Ear pain may arise owing to the pressure difference under water. The Scuba Diving tutor can advise you on remediation steps for this.

The second is that you have to breathe in from your mouth and not your nose. We are used to breathing from the nose but underwater the Scuba Diving gear will keep our nose closed.

Sky Diving

It’s hard to describe the feeling of Sky Diving in mere words. After the free fall, you feel a great level of accomplishment.

Below are the steps of sky diving

  • For Sky Diving you will be taken to a high altitude point like 15,000ft ie in the middle of skies in a helicopter.
  • The helicopter journey will be around 20mins.
  • From the height, you have to jump down to the earth and you will be falling freely at a speed of 160 – 180 mph depending on your body weight and the exact height of a jump.
  • Freefall will be around 60-70 secs.
  • At a height of 2,500ft you have to fire open the parachute so that your speed gets limited.

For safety measures there should always be a secondary parachute attached to an Automatic Activation Device so that is case the primary fails of the jumper fails to open it, the AAD will fire open the secondary parachute. This will considerably reduce your free fall speeds to speed that you are safe for landing.
