58. I Can Breathe Under Water!

No, I have not gotten gills. But I have been certified as a PADI Open Water Diver. Licensed to breathe 18 meters below the surface (I have actually already been at 25 meters). Diving has truly lived up to all my expectations. It is a fantastic experience to share an hour with moray eels, turtles, sea horses, barracudas, spotted eagle rays, lobsters and all the colourful schools of fish that hang around the healthy reefs around Bequia. And it really isn’t that difficult. Once you get the hang of how the equipment works and you learn to balance your buoyancy so that you feel almost weightless. Scuba equipment and an underwater camera are certainly next on the list of things to buy!

I’m a diver! I really need to stay out of the sun though…

  1. Hej Tomas,
    Grattis till dykarlicencensen.
    Du verkar som vanligt ha det hur bra som helst.
    Här i Sverige har vi det väldigt varmt.
    Jag förmodar att du säkrat båten ordentligt inför orkansäsong.
    Ha det så bra vi ses/Jonas
