Another point on learning to scuba dive in Lake Malawi
Further to my previous post Kevin has mentioned another point in favour of learning to dive in Lake Malawi…a lack of seasickness on the part of the students here.
I know that Lake Malawi produces big waves and great storms but I have seen none of that on Likoma Island in the last nine days. While in other places you could lose two or three diving days a month that does not seem to be true here.
In a previous posting Kevin worked at Tofu in Mozambique where there was a constant conflict between diving and alcohol. They may have the greatest diving there on the ocean coast of Mozambique but being a kind of Ibiza for South Africans, the distractions are too much for many student divers (I am sure it’s a bit more cultured than that).
Of course the views I have expressed are subjective. If you want to learn to scuba dive in the most famous ocean resorts, drink and party in the evening, and learn to cope with a hangover and seasickness when underwater…then Likoma Island may not be for you.
Still, a beer is less than a £1 here.
