We had our first diving in Boracay Philippines. It was like adrenaline rush in all your body in just one moment and In reality I was going to discover a whole new world all together.First research diving school,best diving provider in the island that’s very important. Through #tripadvisor, we found wonderful comments for “WaterColors Boracay Dive Resort” and that was the place we choosed for diving. It was “Discover scuba diving” course which literally means that you never had diving experience and this is the first time to experience under water.Our schedule was like this , first we were shown a video for 1 hours regarding underwater precaution and sign language , then we did some paperwork followed by diving instrument practice in water ( Not deep water but just up-to your shoulder ) with instructors. Once instructor found that you are adjusted with scuba instructions practice, then the time has come to go for real site. Don’t ever forget the one and only one most important rule in diving that never ever hold your breath so breathe … breathe .. breathe … It was so funny at diving site that our instructor told everyone to leave the rope so that we can go down but nobody leave due to fear of water but finally we dared to leave rope and instructor helped to go down upto bottom of the sea. It was really unforgettable moment when we all divers were sitting at the bottom of sea for photos and video shoot(photo session money not included in scuba diving fee).Overall in starting it was fear dominating but at the end it was adventure like aaj nahi kiya to kabhi nahi kiya. Ji li jindagi with nanosecond ahsas.
Personal recommendation –
*If you are using specs then make sure that you have contact lens too because they will not allow your specs during diving but the will allow you lens.
*Try to choose morning batch for diving which leave around 11:00 , it seems evening is a bit dark and there are many more things to explore in the evening.
* If you are not able to complete training drills successfully then trainer will not allow you to dive so be ready for that also.
* If you having cold or ear problem you can not dive.
