Getting scuba certified was one of my goals to achieve before leaving Bali but I have always been a little scared to actually do it. The never-ending sight of the ocean scares me to death. I kept on postponing and finding excuses to not do it until I came across Blue Season Bali.
Finally doing my Open Water course was the best decision I have ever made so far. Although I had my doubts at the start, I was partnered up with the best scuba diving buddy and greatest mentors. I felt safe and comfortable the whole way through! Learning from a confined space to diving in the ocean is indescribable, the feeling I got was something I never felt before! AMAZEBALLS!
After the pool sessions, we were finally going into the ocean!! My heart was pounding from the bus ride to the dive site and even harder the second I stepped into the water. I was properly nervous until we descended down and opened my eyes, I was not on earth anymore! I was speechless!
Tulamben as my first ever ocean dive could not have gone any better, after re-practising skills we learnt in the pool, we swam around the wreck and reefs that were filled with all kinds of fish! It was soo beautiful and I couldn't get enough of it!
I saw sweetlips, filefish, yellow boxfish, humped-head fish, eels any crazy more!
In Padang Bai, even better, multiple boat wrecks, turtles, lionfish and sharks! I am terrified of sharks and I got sooo close to one! A meter away from a shark!
Not only did I achieve one of my goals but I overcame one of my biggest fears thanks to Blue Season Bali! Have to say, the best scuba diving center there is in Bali without a doubt!
