Scuba Diving: My First Time

Yeah, I did it. After three years of deliberation, I finally got a chance to dive! I took PADI’s Discover Scuba Diving session in Bangalore through Planet Scuba India. This will be just 4 pictures and not much text, but remember not to laugh. I couldn’t find a wetsuit that fit me, so I had to dive in my vest. I looked like a pink baby whale.

That's me and Anamda, giving the "OK" sign. See, I look like a whale / walrus!

 

I'm in the background, racing with Atul for the finish line! I'm winning. Really, I am.
And there's Atul, giving me the finger.

It was the best 40 minutes of my life!

  1. Ha ha – this is good stuff. I had the opportunity to do scuba diving in Maldives – at first I was a little nervous of the vastly open ocean but after few days of practice and experience I even went as far as diving in the night – admittedly I was in a group all the time but still it was scary.
