Does Scuba Diving Have a Retirement Age?
When taking stock of our physical abilities and capabilities as we age there are absolutes that divers should be familiar with.
The good news is that with age usually comes wisdom, and that improved judgement and reasoning can help you compensate for most negative body function changes.
Knowing that we will have some level of impariment as we age brings us to how we can make accomodations and still dive safely.
Aging is a fact of life but how we handle growing older can make the difference between enjoying diving well into our Golden Years and having to prematurely hang up the fins.
