Believe it or not many divers have attempted naked scuba diving already. Believe me, if they haven’t, the thought has crossed through their minds.
Yep, the idea of nude scuba diving seems to be catching on with a lot of divers and not just as the 100th dive tradition. Now, naturally this isn’t for everyone (nothing is), but a great number of divers are enjoying the freedom of diving au-atural. In fact, there are many numerous nude scuba diving organizations for those who like to be “free” while diving.
According to the blog post in australiatravelblog the sensation of diving in nature with noting on is thrilling and enjoyable. One of our followers suggested that its better in side-mount diving.. Humm… LOL
In addition to the great sensation you get while scuba diving nude, you will also discover the safety things to consider. For example, a number of subtropical and tropical oceans are afflicted with sea lice which become caught under clothing. The concern is that sea lice bite and it is uncomfortable. However, sea lice tend not to stick to exposed skin, which implies people can scuba dive undressed without having to bother about these kinds of irritating animals. Keep at heart it is suggested body hair be clipped or even shaved right off.
