Okay I just had to write and talk about my FIRST TWO OCEAN DIVES (thus being my coolest dives) I was recently certified (as I've said before) and my dad and I just went and finally did our ocean dives. It was absolutely amazing. We went to the Nassau to do them and it was pretty much the coolest thing ever. There were SO many ship wrecks (one being the set for Into the Blue) and tons of fish. The visibility was amazing (I guess I'm just so used to the muck water here) and there were SHARKS!!
OMGOSH IT WAS AMAZING! They were Caribbean Reef Sharks and it was amazing. (I know I'm repeating myself but it WAS!) Our leader told us that there was a feeding boat not too far off and they rarely saw them but they were down there. I was scared at first but when I got down there I was amazed at how natural it all felt. They just...swam.
They were just fish and they didn't pose any threat. They were about 4-5 ft although while I was down there they seemed like 2 ft. lol I guess it shows how relaxed I was. It was cool too 'cause there were fish swimming on their backs just like the documentaries...my gosh it was awesome. : )
anyway, thanks for letting me ramble. I'm sure some of you guys have swam with much larger and scarier then that. Anybody have any stories? Is it always so natural swimming with 'em?
