If someone had told me to go diving three days ago, I would have said no for certain. I can't swim and I hate the idea of being surrounded by fishes.
However today, after going diving for the first time I would say yes every time. After a pool training session for the best part of yesterday morning, the team and I spent this morning diving at the twin peaks dive spot in Koh Tao, Thailand with other Open Water divers from around the world.
Our total dive time was around 1 hour and 15 minutes across two dives, and we had the chance to witness some of the most beautiful corals and marine life, as well as exploring the resorts own underwater exhibits. Granted I scraped my knee and there were moments of pure panic in the first dive, I would still recommend a diving course to anyone who has the chance, especially on turtle island, aka Koh Tao.
