Scuba diving in Komodo National Park may be one of the wildest dreams any diver can have. I have met a lot of divers that have told wonderful stories about Komodo with so much zest and intensity. Finally, the time came that I dragged myself to the paradise for divers.
If you have the diving bug, then a big part of any break that you go on will be the chance to strap on the scuba gear and get in the water. Luckily, if you are planning on visiting the coast of Costa del Sol anytime soon, you will find plenty of places that are excellent diving spots as well as some lovely accommodation, restaurants, and things to do in the brief few hours that you are not exploring the undersea landscape. Read on to find out more.
Two years ago when my life as a scuba diver officially began. I had taken up my Open Water (Level 1) certification with French Kiss Divers Koh Tao in Thailand and I was perfectly delighted about their method of teaching the fundamentals of scuba diving, most especially with safety. I’ve had a couple of dives since then but with the restrictions of going down only up to 18 meters due to my certification level. So, this year, I had decided to take it to the next level by passing my Advanced Adventurer (Level 2) certification with another branch of French Kiss Divers in Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia to be able to dive up to 30 meters as well as to improve my skills.
Going on vacation can be one of the best times in the year. Most people use this time to relax and let go of the stresses of life. Unfortunately, though, this usually doesn’t fit into most people’s fitness goals. Instead, spending a week or two without proper exercise could have a huge impact on your progress. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t travel, though. Instead, you just need to find ways to get active while you’re out there. And, to help you out, this post will be going through some of the best vacation activities that also work you out.
Using a gap year to go traveling will provide you with life-long memories, experiences, and skills. Use the time wisely to do something impressive – such as learning to dive. Diving opens a whole new world of opportunities and you’ll see things few others get to. Not convinced? Check out these reasons why you should learn to dive.
If you’re interested in getting your scuba diving certification, you’ve probably come across with two of the most recognized SCUBA certification agencies around the world today: PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) and SSI (Scuba Schools International).
Probably, most of you have not heard of Raja Ampat until now. Understandable. To be honest, I have not heard of it myself until my fiancé spoke about it last year. In all fairness, it is so remote that it is largely unknown to foreign tourists, which I consider a good thing.
Due to the strong current and low visibility, we had to do a negative entry (i.e. descend rapidly head first) to the dive site. I was in a lot of pressure because if I f*ck up the entry, I will be drifted away and will miss the dive. I am new diver and the condition of this dive site is not suitable for me however, LUCKILY, my Dive Instructor promised to take care of me throughout the dive. So, bring it on!
