Yes we made it and passed with flying colors…lol…
Here are the newest PADI Open Water Scuba Divers on the block…such a fulfilling sport to be able to get this experience with our young kids as a family…
Open water dive is really something I wish everyone can experience being able to go under water and see all the marine life down there is amazing.
Our trip started from Manila when we board the 2 hour bus ride to Batangas to meet our instructor Wilson who left ahead of time.
It was a nice smooth no stress bus ride.
We arrived at the batangas bus terminal..then got into a Jeepney that took about 1 hour to fill up…the Jeepney took us to Mabini…when we got off we took a try cycle which dropped at off at our dive resort. The anilaio beach club.
We had to get suit up right away and start our shore dive…my first time in open water that deep. I think it’s the first for our whole family going 40 feet deep…we had our pool lessons at a 15 feet deep water so it’s very different…this one had salt water and it’s an uncomfortable environment…but with all our practice we new this was what we practiced for so ready or not here we come.
Wilson and his buddy Jim helped us get suited up and we started our last day of dive test until we can get our certification.
It all went well.
The next day was our fun dive day…super exciting since we have to now ride the boat to the payalan island at a dive spot and just dive our way….
We made 2 dives there and spent about 4 hours just exploring the waters and just having fun. Such an amazing experience.
Seeing the corals and fish and all the stuff in the marine world.
Our next dive place will probably be in Malaysia since now we are PADI Open Water Scuba Certified Divers….yeyyyyy….
