Remember that cartoon we all watched as children called The Little Mermaid? The one with the character named Ariel a princess that lived in the lost underwater sea world of Atlantis, a magical ecosystem of its own with exotic wildlife and flora completely distinct to the one we’re surrounded by on land. The reason that show spoke so immensely to people is because the desire to explore the unknown is always greater than anything else and scuba diving was invented keeping exactly that in mind.
