Wonders of the deep
ancy and foggy mask, I get in close proximity with interesting sea creatures. Some are playing hide-and-seek with me. I wonder if this dive can be on the same par as the one I did at South Point, Sipadan, which was by far the best I have logged.
Spotting a huge Napoleon wrasse, several sharks, hawksbill turtles and an amazing Barracuda vortex in a single dive is not an easy one to top but who knows? I might get lucky.
You see, that is the fun part about diving: you can’t tell what you are going to come across and when you will see it. You can dive in the same spot every day and never see the same thing.
I can be swimming through a sunken wreck for the tenth time and still feel the thrill of exploring a new territory. The sense of adventure is what drives me. Not knowing what surprises may come my way is absolutely exciting.
After spending about an hour below surface, we perform our safety stop and slowly climb out of the water. Once everyone is back on the boat, we return to our dive centre. Being in an underwater wonderland left me in a very good mood. As I sit back and enjoy the boat ride, with my salty hair tangled up and my sunkissed face beaming with a smile, I reflect back on the things I have just experienced.
