SCUBA in Bali
These are the snaps of underwater scuba in Bali. Didn’t go to the undisturbed locations, but went to place where we were well taken care off. The snaps were taken by underwater camera and the coloration of the pictures are not as in person.. so pardon the colors in the pics..
First round was for first timers as my cousins were new to this, so was I. So they took us only to about 6m deep (20 feet) where most of the corals were dead and it was fish only.. these are the deadeed pictures…
With my cousins
With dead corals..
getting help from instructors…
posing with a dead brain coral..
Once we learnt the art of scuba diving, we plunged for the second one the very next day.. and we went about 16m (50 feet or so) and it was just awesome…mostly soft corals… the fishes were in various ranges from brown/black tangs, to clowns, to butterflies and amazing colored gobies… we also found a water snake blue/white striped it was about 5 foot in length but awesome coloration, not visible in the underwater camera…
With elephant ears
Group snap it…
with devils’ finger and cauli’s… huge stuff, coloration not proper..
The underwater currents were so strong that we ended up scratching ourselves on the rocks and corals and the scars developed into rashes and further what not, sent shivers down our spine as those places wherever we got scratched started to bulge like a mosquito bite and it took about 1wk for the swelling to subside….
… and also I was ejected quickly out of the water in return from 50 feet in about 6 seconds so my ears got punctured and had a nose bleed but that was normal I suppose… but the whole experience was damn awesome as it came with the biggest plus of being with the pet that I love the most – Fishes!!!
