With Spring well underway, and the temperature soaring to beyond sixty degrees, we thought we’d help you rid the last of your winter ways with an adventure you can’t refuse. As we’ve mentioned many times before, there are a lot of pros to living into Colorado, but there is one drawback to our beloved home, and that is the lack of a beach or ocean. Most of us would be quick to admit that being able to come home from a day of skiing and soak of the last of the sun on a white, sand speckled beach, would be pretty amazing.  Sadly, though, Mother Nature didn’t have that in store for us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend.

Our Wishlist activity of the week is Scuba Diving, and despite being a land-locked state, there is more than one place where you can cruise around underwater like your favorite sea creatures. Ocean First Divers is a Boulder company that is dedicated to teaching you the ins and outs of Scuba Diving. Enjoy a two-hour lesson for 2 people, from Ocean First Divers’ skilled staff, and be on your way to scuba certification.

If you’re looking to scratch your scuba itch in the Denver area, have no fear – Underwater Phantaseas is here! Experience the thrill of scuba diving in a controlled environment, along with 3 other friends and family members, for an hour and a half session.

Colorado might be lacking any crystal clear oceans, but that shouldn’t stop you from experiencing the thrill of exploring an under-sea world. Whether you’re in Denver or Boulder, Wishlist wants to help you dive head first (literally) into a new adventure. If you’re a little hesitant about taking that first step into the scuba diving world, check out our post by a previous Wishlist employee, who said that learning to scuba dive was one of her favorite experiences.
