My experience as a professional scuba diver for the New York Harbor School has been exciting and there’s still so much more to come. Swimming underwater is fun and all but being able to breath underwater and getting to see a whole different ecosystem right before your eyes is breathtaking! For example, during my sophomore year the professional diving program went on a week trip to the Bahamas, where we stayed at the Island School.
Staying there we were able to learn so much about the deepest parts of the ocean, the anatomy of a lionfish, and so much more! Professional diving has its pros and cons. Some pros being able to see what life underwater is like, but also putting yourself in great danger if you don’t know what you’re doing.
