I love the depths of the ocean for there I get a sort of escape from the daily chaos of life. Many times, I have envied the fish for their ability to swim, the jellyfish for their ability to survive with a minimal brain, and the sharks for their ferocity. I envy the ocean, especially for her power. I take every opportunity to dive and explore the ocean’s bowels. It is always a great “fishing” expedition for me to dive into the clear turquoise blue waters ready to access the wonders hidden there in.
Since my dad introduced me to scuba diving when I turned sixteen years old, I have never looked back. In fact, I have dived in so many destinations and places I have lost count. However, one thing that I know is that once you become addicted to this adventure, you can never get enough of the adrenaline rush that you experience when the water presses your body from all directions.
But I have had my scares too. For example, there is this time when I experienced the fear of my life when I saw a hulking shadow in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. I was out of my wits and I thought that was the end of me. I even forgot to summon my courage to kick for the surface which was barely 30 feet above me. You can imagine my relief when I came face to face with a grinning dolphin and I almost hugged him. Or was it her? Well, that and I have been bitten too, my diving suit punctured by a stingray that felt I had intruded into his niche too much. Well, these are some of the small prices I have had to pay, but the experiences are more than worth it.
I, Oscar, is not a selfish man. That is why I run a blog detailing my adventures. I do this to engage my fans to get them interested in this craft. Many of them come back to thank me for opening their eyes to the wonders of Mother Nature below the ocean. Well, a man can only do what he can do, and that is what I do.
I also review diving gear, which I feel makes or breaks a diving experience. No matter how qualified you are, if you do not have the right gear, then your experience and skill count for naught. Believe me dear reader, you really do not want to be caught sitting duck, with your lungs screaming for air just because your diving package failed. This is why I have tried out as many packages as possible so that I can give an honest, unbiased review of each.
So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to enjoy the wonders that the ocean depths hold for you? What are you waiting for then? Grab your gear … wait, read these two reviews and see what I recommend.
