My first discover scuba diving experienced. It didn't go well.
First of all the scuba diving is not my thing. Just I always watched the scuba diving on Youtube to see different things underwater. I have favorite scuba diver in Youtube where I spend a lot of time to watch his channel. I showed it to my friend who I visited in Bohol for this short holiday. He told me that I should go to experience it in real not jut only watching. At first I really doubt to go cause I have fear going to the deep. My friend gave me courage. So I said yes I will do it with you. After chilling in the coast with drinks. We went to the dive shop to see a short video screening before going to dive tomorrow morning. I fill out some forms and answering some question on piece of paper. Then the instructor told me you are ready to go for dive tomorrow. Wow! that makes me felt so excited.
That day has come I have to get ready. I am telling myself not to be afraid of whatever happen. Though its not my thing. This is my dream ever since to see things underwater. I wanted to feel how it will like. We arrived at the dive shop and get into the multi-cab to another place. I'm surrounded with certified divers. It's really cool but I felt so out of nowhere when i'm with them even they don't make me feel like that. Our day started with beautiful weather and calm ocean.
I did the discover scuba diving at Arco point, Panglao, Bohol. To be honest I have mixed emotion. I felt nervousness, fear and nerve-wrecking. After I put the gear equipment its all gone I felt so ready to go down to the water. My scuba diving instructor is very lovely, sweet and most of all soft spoken. She remind me and taught me important things underwater. I did the breathing skills and simplifying the mask removal under 5 meters depth and so on. It was not successful dive though cause I got panic. My main problem is breathing its really difficult to breath using your mouth with oxygen. The feeling so weird. It takes time to get to used to it. Basically I've done nothing more than practicing skills underwater. The experience is really worth it. Underwater is truly different world. I felt like alien.
I will never give up. I loved it so I will do it again next month. I hope to see something underwater that will completely blown my mind. I know it will happen I just need to practice first and probably in the pool is much better to practice at first. yey! I really cannot wait for this journey to different world adventure underwater.
Bohol has many things to offer not just diving. This place so calm and relaxing although a bit more touristic this time but still have so much space for you where you want to get relaxed. I come often to see friends or to chill. I have favorite hostel in Panglao called (Coco farm hostel) there service so nice, rooms are good, the environment very refreshing and surrounded by trees. i love the breakfast in this hotel. You can swing yourself in there hammock with lovely dogs. Isn't it amazing?
Visited to my favorite ice cream shop at Bee farm, Bohol. If you are looking for an organic ice cream, food and things should come here. They also have coffee shop and restaurant with very nice ocean view. I highly recommend it if you are looking a place like this.
For sunset view I come to Alona beach its the best. You can stay for a drinks, food and walk by the beach while you have such beautiful sunset view. Also best for massage on the beach side so relaxing and stress free. This is the place where tourist spend time at night.
I love Bohol. If you haven't been there yet. You should see it. If you've been there already then tell me what is your favorite things to do there and where is your nice spot for sunset?
