Never Fall In Love With A Scuba Diver

Check out PADI's new short film inspired by yours truly!




Never fall in love with a scuba diver. He'll spend every weekend at the beach and have an uneven tan. Her hair will never be dry and her kiss will often be salty. He'll have a scruffy chin, and own more boardshorts than ties. He'll spend hours flying to places with no mobile reception and travel miles into the rainforest with people he barely know. He'll insist you drink the local beer and if you admit to being scared of sharks, she'll laugh at you.

He'll be fascinated by things other people find strange or ugly. And bubble rings are her way of flirting. No trip will ever be as interesting as the time he dove with the whalesharks or that night she danced won the villagers in Palau. They dislike fancy dinners almost as much as wearing shoes, and would rather immerse themselves in local culture than talk of settling down. And they can spend hours staring at the ocean, not hearing a word you say.

But if by any chance you fall in love with a merman, if mermaid steals your heart and won't give it back, don't let her gills dry out. Let the waves be the call of the sea, and slip beneath the waves to be in their other world. Take them on an adventure, stand in the spray of a waterfall and dive into the unknown. Learn how to say "thank you" in ten different languages and see things so amazing you'll have no words to describe them. Let them show you how the ocean transforms. The scuba diver will never love you as much as they love the ocean but they will love forever sharing it with you.
