The last week I’ve been at the Oman Dive centre and I loved every minute of it. Well off course I have to say I’m only a starting PADI Open Water diver but hay you’ve got to start somewhere.
Today was extra special because I did two adventure dives, one was the deep dive and I went down to 30.7 meters (as an Open Water Diver you’re only allowed to go down to 18 meters). The second was the wreck dive apart from the dept another thing I saw at 30 meters made it extra special, I saw a sea snake. What’s so special about that? Well this specie had enough poison to kill 10 people with one bite. He needs a big mouth for that off course but still. The other thing which made this day extra special was that I had my first encounter with sharks under water in real life; we saw 4 Black Tip Reef sharks. The strange thing about it is that I didn’t feel scared at all, which I always thought I’d be if I would see one under water, but instead I chased it because I was fascinated. Well there’s no way to chase a shark, because they are unbelievably quick and you’re just a slug compared to their speed.
The only thing I can say after these last 3 week in Oman is, start learning how to dive and come to Oman, you’ll love it.
Signing off from Muscat Oman, you’re guide for the last three weeks.
