For dive one, we were at the location tons of sponge. On this dive we did a few of the skills that we had left. These skills included:
- Compass work (surface and underwater)
- Fully remove mask and put it back on
- No reference ascend and descend
- Diving with a dive computer
- Planned a dive (second dive of the day)
The CESA skill was a challenge for me, I was so nervous about doing it. My dive instructor reassured me that I could do it, I went into the water, and successfully mastered the skill! Woo! The other skills that we preformed today were not a challenge to me. Which I am surprised about because I hate flooding my mask never mind completely taking it off, but it was a breeze for me to complete. It shows that I have become more comfortable in the water. On dive two which was at Sand Schute, we executed our own dive with our instructors behind us, this was very interesting to do. Definitely shows you how much you depend on them during a dive. I have had trouble with buoyancy the last couple dives. BUT, today, I was NOT floating away from everyone! YAY!! I am a lot more comfortable in the water today than I have been the past few times I have more confidence in myself in the water! WOO! After all the hard work of both dives today we are officially open water dive certified!! YAY! WOO! This is such a great feeling. Now after all the skill work, we are certified and now can dive anywhere! The dives are so much more enjoyable now that we don’t have to do any skills. I cant wait to dive again on Tuesday! On These two dives we saw Caribbean reef sharks, that were big! Sharks are such majestic creatures. We also REALLY big french angel fish that was right in front of my face, that was pretty cool!
Tonight we are going to Dr.C and Dr.S’s friend’s house and then we are going to see the the glow worms!! 🙂 I can’t wait!!
Just got back to the hotel, wow the glow worms were amazing!! It so great seeing something like that, and not many people know glow worms exist. It is very fascinating how this worms sync up with the moon phases. The world works in amazing ways. In the middle of our little excursion, we couldn’t find one of the dogs and we soon found that the dog was laying with a shark fin!!! It was neat to see a shark fin up close and personal. It’s sad because someone must of caught the shark and cut its fin off. None the less it was still neat to see. Tomorrow we are going to sailing! I can’t wait!!
The shark fin we found.
