I can remember the very first time I saw a shark. Instead of beating faster, my heart decided to stop beating altogether. I was hovering over some soft corals obsessed about clown fishes and sea anemones swaying with the current. And as I got closer, to examine the petite ones, the parent rushed over and swam directly to my face as if to yell at me. I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was my instructor, excited and frantic and signing “shark” to me. My eyes widened and I glimpsed over to where he was pointing, not knowing what to expect. My head filled with fear that the shark would swim over to me and eat me. Once I laid eyes on this fascinating creature, I fell in love. I never expected to feel as calm as I did when it glided through the water so effortlessly in front of me. I was breathless. And this was the most amazing feeling I ever had. I wanted to share those feelings. This blog is about my insane passion for diving and appreciation for the animals that it hosts. After every dive I feel captivated. Surfacing with more and more questions and desiring knowledge about the Ocean. Join me in this journey, travel around the globe with me, while I uncover the true beauty of the underwater world.
