Photo Essay of a First-Time-Scuba-Diver

Boracay Island in Philippines has some of the best dive sites in the world. Though I went for my first ever Scuba Dive in the middle of the off season, when the sea is not very clear and most beautiful fish are off the dive site limits., and in the later part of the day, late afternoon the visibility under water reduces., I still claim the experience was great and second to none.

Get trained at a shallow spot for breathing techniques and basic life saving techniques
Even if the thought freaks you out, once the oxygen cylinder is at your back, dive into the water backwards
Ain't that coral what we all want to see?
Get Curious. The Dive instructor will be there showing you under water amusements
Amusements underwater. They bloat up and burst if you approach them.
When the 40 minutes are up, come up with a thumbs up :)
