Scuba Diving

19 September 2010
Sophie Larsen
Hi everyone! This entry is about yesterday, when I went scuba diving.

In the morning, I went to the dive shop to listen to the rules of scuba diving. After that lecture I went with the divemaster and another beginner to scuba dive near the docks. We had to practice things like taking our regulators off, letting it swing in back of us, and retrieving it again.

In the afternoon, my Dad and I went with a dive group out to a location called Monkey Wall. When I tried to get in the water, I had to have help because altogether the gear weighed 50 or 60 pounds. Once I was in the water, I descended on the anchor line to the bottom, about 10 meters(30 ft.)down. The coral down there was amazing. Reds, yellows, and oranges were everywhere. I saw a beautiful blue and yellow striped fish, and some purplish blue parrot fish. All the life down there was amazing, and I didn't need to come up for a breath.

Scuba diving yesterday was really fun!
