Utilization of the ocean for relaxation created in the nineteenth 100 years, and turned into a critical industry in the 20th hundred years. Diverse types of maritime leisure activities include self-organized cruises, yachting, powerboat racing, and fishing; commercially organized cruise ship journeys; and ecotourism excursions on smaller vessels for things like watching birds on the coast and whales.
After Dr. William Buchan recommended it for health reasons in the 18th century, sea bathing became popular in Europe. A surfer, with or without a surfboard, rides a wave in the sport of surfing. Kite surfing, in which a power kite propels a board rider across the water, windsurfing, in which a fixed, maneuverable sail provides power, and water skiing, in which a powerboat pulls a skier, are additional marine water sports.
Freediving must be limited to shallow descents below the surface. To collect oysters, pearl divers can dive 40 feet (12 meters) with baskets. While wearing a diving mask can improve one’s vision, the human eye is not designed to function underwater. Fins and snorkels are two other pieces of useful equipment. Scuba gear lets you breathe underwater, so you can stay underwater for longer.
The pressure they experience as they descend and the need to prevent decompression sickness as they return to the surface limit the depths that divers can reach and the amount of time they can stay underwater. The danger of nitrogen narcosis increases at depths above 100 feet (30 meters) for recreational divers. With the right gear and training, you can go deeper.
