On my way out to scuba dive...the bridge behind me was pretty cool.
There were only 7 of us beginners that went to intro scuba diving, 3 getting their diving license, and 2 experienced divers (one of which got hurt and had to go to the hospital). As far as the rest of the group, most of them climbed Halla (san) Mountain. We could see Hallasan from our diving spot.
On the way to dive...
We arrived! We were so surprised to see we were diving off of this rock!
There were several experienced divers diving that day.
You have to spit in your mask really, really, good and rub it around to prevent fogging. Looks like Caitlin is really inspecting how well she did.
ahhh...we are in the water!
I'm practicing breathing under water.
I believe this is when he said, "ok...let's go." I said, "what? now. really...you think I'm ready? are you sure?"
going down...lol...can you smell fear?? I'm so worried about the breathing...I look like a blowfish!
I survived! I believe this is me telling everyone how much I couldn't believe how silly I felt for being scared of the breathing. But really, it was so worth it. It was so beautiful down there. The corals were bright pink and purple...the fish were so colorful and traveled in schools. It was really a diferent life down there. I really want to try this again. Now that I know what to expect, I think I will be able to spend my time swimming around to see the fish instead of spending my time figuring out how to breathe.
The instructors gave me some photos they took at our diving spot from the camera they used to take our pictures.
The corals I remember were much brighter than this!
While I was in the water, my new diving friends took some photos of the area with my camera.
Sung was the coolest instructor! I wish she would have been down in the water with me...
