There are many different kinds of people in this world. There are those who love their homes. They have lived in the same house their entire life and loved it. Then there are people who can’t stay at one place for more than a certain period of time. They are the wanderers, the lost ones who drift from place to place in search of peace. Then there are the ones who want to just adventure. They search for the oddest, most exciting things to do and then they do it. This could be pyramid jumping Egypt or liveaboard diving australia. They just want to break perceptions and test their limits.
There is a new breed of such people coming up. They have grown in the last couple of decades. They believe that human beings have taken up enough space on land. This could be for a variety of reasons. The one which is the most obvious is that housing costs have just risen in the past twenty years. Buying and maintaining a house takes up the majority of a person’s income nowadays. Add to this the maintenance costs, house taxes, regular repairs and the odd improvements around the house; this eats up a person’s life not just his money.
The other reasons could be that they want to try a different style of living, they can’t take too much pollution or that they just love the sea. This is the liveaboard life style. It started with some divers in Australia wanting to spend more time diving, leading to the first liveaboard diving Australia.The concept grew slowly.
Liveaboard generally consists of a small family or a handful of people living off a yacht or a larger floating device which is generally tied up at some or the other dock around the world. They might have normal lives and even jobs in the city, but when it comes to calling a place home, their boat is their place.
Contrary to popular belief, the cost of living in this type of lifestyle is actually higher than the normal cost of living. This is because usually it includes living in a floating device which is costly and secondly because this floatation device needs fuel on a regular basis. Also, the people should be in sync with the sea (i.e. they shouldn’t get seasick).
Most people who adopt this lifestyle usually take up some trade pertaining to the sea. This includes fishing, freight transport and in rare cases exploration. Also, in liveaboard diving Australia leads in the number of people adopting this lifestyle. In the waters of the kookaburra a lot of people live on a boat having the capacity of 10 to 30 people. They usually take divers on board who want to go diving in the sea at places not accessible within a day and work like an overnight motel.
This might not pay well if the captain of the boat doesn’t have enough experience as the sea has a fickle nature. Sea changes on a whim and can cause trouble to the people who live such lifestyle.
