It took me a few years and a lot of dives before I got my Open water. I was simply so scared diving without my instructor. I saw my fear in the eyes and got a Padi open water. I loved it and wanted more so I took an Padi advance open water! I
If you want to try diving but don’t want to spend a 5 days getting a Padi certificate. Book one instructor for 2 dives in one day and enjoy the beauty under water. I did that 6 times before I was ready for my certificate.
I have been diving different places around the world. My favorite is:
Great Barrier Reef. Australia
Similan icelands, Thailand
Sharelm shaik, Egypt
I really recommend to take your diving certificat in Thailand. It’s cheap, nice places to dive and amazing atmosphere. I stayed at Ban’s Diving resort in Koh Tao and I loved it there. They had really cool dive instructors, great equipment and a nice bar. 🙂 Read more about Ban’s diving resort here.
