I have heard while diving you burn more calories per hour than any other physical activity. Can anyone verify this? If so, would you mind explaining why?

I can't verify the first part of the statement thought I too have heard that. The reason it is such a good exercise is that it is arobic and the diver does not feel the strain on the muscle because of the cooling down by the water and the distraction of the environment
