Scuba diving is often seen as an expert hobby; not only do you need to understand the skills inherent in diving, you also need to understand the movements of various marine animals and plant life, as well as oceanic currents, all while also keeping up to date with the rules and regulations within each locality.
Due to these difficulties, most divers tend to book pre-packaged diving holidays, wherein companies design your excursions for you, all at an exorbitant cost.
However, with Scuba Calendar, you don’t need to worry about this. Scuba Calendar seeks to give you everything you need to plan your Scuba diving holiday.[sc name=”quote” text=”Scuba Calendar seeks to give you everything you need to plan your Scuba diving holiday.”]
Scuba Calendar works by selecting either what country you’re visiting, what animal you want to see, or what month you’re travelling in.
Once you’ve provided that, the app finds the very best possible combinations available for you.
If, for example, you want to view Hammerhead sharks, Scuba Calendar will tell you the best locations to travel to so as to be able to see them, as well as the best possible months.
You can combine different locations, months and animals however you see fit, all working towards building the perfect diving holiday.
You view the locations either on a map view or a convenient, filtered list view. This makes it incredibly easy to locate the very best possible places to visit your desired animals.
When you select a specific location, it will show you important information for that locality, such as local laws and ordinances based on diving, as well as important safety information to help protect you from nefarious, poisonous animals.
Once you’ve picked out your desired locations, you then have the ability to save it to your maps, building a sort of journal for your future diving travels.
You can then share this with other users of the app in the Divers Connected section, wherein you can showcase pictures and tags of places you’ve Scuba dived around the world.[sc name=”quote” text=”You can then share this with other users of the app in the Divers Connected section, wherein you can showcase pictures and tags of places you’ve Scuba dived around the world.”]
One very interesting detail that Scuba Calendar includes is the fact that they credit every single image they assign to the little thumbnails of the animals or locations. For each location that contains the picture, you’ll find the image source – though this might mean nothing for a diver, it demonstrates an inherent quality of character behind the developers; they’re transparent and are able to give credit where credit is due.
Scuba Calendar it a utility app of the very best kind – it has a singular purpose, and it fulfills that purpose admirably. You need to be able to plan your Scuba diving holiday, and Scuba Calendar provides everything you need to accomplish this.
Too often, utility apps like this are cluttered with unnecessary elements – in Scuba Calendar, it only gives you exactly what you need.
