I'm a scuba diver. Or rather, I once was—it's not easy to find the time or money to get wet once you have kids. And if you can manage to put together the required time and money, you then have to explain your absence—which can be even more difficult. How do you explain the pull of the deep when your kids just want you to play on the sand?
I finally found a way to share my love of underwater exploration, courtesy of a real, honest-to-goodness submarine ride. Blue Safari offers both submarine and sub-scooter tours that allow you to submerge yourself—and your kids—without bothering with a regulator or wetsuit.
