We shopped around a little but it was the in center training pool that made us first choose island divers, we got to try breathing underwater before taking the 1 and a half hour boat ride to the island which allowed us to get our fears about breathing underwater out of the way, both
myself and my husband were nervous but really wanted to try diving.
we were very lucky with the weather on the day, and our guide explained that we would go to a shallow calm reef to do our discover dive, the coral reef was beautiful and whilst we were doing the skills the instructor explained were needed to allow us to go diving we had lots of small fish swimming around us, it was hard to concentrate on what we had to do as I just wanted to watch the fish, I'd never experienced anything like it, both myself and my husband had not even
snorkeled before, we had never had anyone who had made us feel comfortable enough to go further than we could stand up in the water.
after our first skills dive we had lunch and got a tour of the local village and got to meet with local people involved in protecting the place where we had just been, it was very interesting and made me very proud to be learning to dive with my instructor who was obviously very
much in love with the village and the ocean.
Our second dive was amazing and even though I was still a little scared I held onto my husbands hand as we swam through the coral and saw many colorful fish.
on this trip we did not have time to learn more or start our proper teaching course, but we have both now made the decision to return as soon as possible to go to the next stage and become certified divers.
I can not recommend my instructor, Squeak enough, and want to thank her for giving me an experience i will never forget and showing me what it is really like under my ocean.
