Maybe your kids are too young to scuba dive as yet or you’re not going to be able to make to a warm diving destination this winter. Or maybe you want to scuba dive, but are a little afraid to “dive” right in. Enter Infinite Scuba, an amazing video game for Macs and PCs that lets you enter the world of scuba diving around the world without ever getting wet!
My 6-year-old is fascinated with scuba diving and sharks and wants to read and watch anything he can about the topic. He’s still about two years too young to begin real scuba diving, and somehow books and TV don’t quite give you the same experience. Infinite Scuba is the perfect way to feed his growing curiosity and give him a feel for what scuba diving is really like.
Described as “Indiana-Jones-meets-Jacques Cousteau,” the game, which has won numerous awards, realistically simulates what divers do, such as exploring underwater sites, identifying wildlife, taking photos and finding artifacts, while learning about history and dive science. Plus, the creators of the game work closely with Dr. Sylvia Earle (National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and founder of Mission Blue), the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI®), and dive equipment manufacturers to make sure it simulates a real experience while also raising awareness of ocean and marine life issues.
Take a peek at what it looks like in this YouTube video:
Download Infinite Scuba for just $9.99 and $1 of every game sold will be donated to Mission Blue. What a fun AND educational gift for your travel and adventure-loving family this year! I know it’s on our gift list :).
