Self-isolation and practising social distancing is the new way of life for the moment. By now the boredom has probably set in and you’re going crazy staring at the four walls in your house. Don’t worry because we have you covered! We may not be able to go diving at the moment, but here are 7 diving related games that you can play at home.

2. Scrabble – Use Diving Related Words

If you’re not familiar with scrabble it is a word game with two to four players. For those of you that love the game but want a bit more of a challenge, try using diving related words only. It’s a tough one but we have time.

3. Puzzles

Not only are puzzles good for all you “Dories” out there by improving your short term memory, it can also be super relaxing. Why not pick a puzzle with beautiful underwater scenery or with your favourite sea creature. You can even customise your own puzzle with your very own snap from your favourite dive site – how cool is that.

4. Video Games

It’s time to dust off your old gaming console and immerse yourself into a few diving inspired games.  You can go on an underwater adventure in an alien ocean planet with Subnautica, explore the depths of the ocean with Abzu or try a realistic diving exploration with Endless Ocean. This is a great way to pass the time.

5. Painting

If you have an artistic flare, why not try painting one of your many diving pictures. Painting can be a fantastic way to relieve stress and foster creativity growth. If you’re not so creative give it a go anyway – you may surprise yourself.
