I was at the Downbelow Dive Centre which is in Gaya Island for four days because I was taking my PADI Open Water Course. I got to learn most of the underwater skills and some skills on the sea surface. There are five confined waters and four open water dives. I got to learned the skills during the confined waters and used up some of the skills during the dives. As I learned the most important rule when going on a dive is we must breath slowly, deeply and never hold our breath and equalise each meter or few feet if we don’t we will feel discomfort in the ear, sinuses and other air spaces in our body parts. When going on a dive we must dive with a buddy to help us if we have problem underwater, during on the sea surface or out of air in our cylinder. The part that I like the most is learning to control buoyancy inside the water. It is fun to learn because we can float underwater but for the first few times I can’t really buoy myself because I still can’t really control my body movements underwater. Besides doing confined water and open water dives, there is also exams on the paper. I did it and now I’m an Open Water diver. I am looking forward to do more dives in the future because life in the underwater is so amazing and beautiful. Thank you, Downbelow!
