Diving Background

I love snorkelling and when ever I go abroad I just get a tan on my back because the front of me is face down in the sea. I could spend my entire holiday snorkelling. That is until I started Scuba diving. I always thought that Scuba diving was too expensive and I could never afford to do it (although I’d never looked into it). One day whilst on honeymoon in Maldives my wife and I went on a snorkelling trip to see the Manta Rays. I was the only person to see one due to lagging behind the group trying to sort my under water camera out. I also saw a giant Box Fish about 30 feet down. I held my breath and swam down as far as I could to get a decent photo of it, but I couldn’t go deep enough due to the pressure in my ears. At that moment I saw 2 divers side by side and finning mid water across the ocean. I decided there and then that diving was for me. As soon as I got back to England I signed onto an Open Water course without even having a try dive. My only regret is not having started diving sooner.
