Scuba Diving in Redang

It was Day 2 in Redang. The weather was fine and the sea was calm. Darling decided to try scuba diving..

So we took a slow walk along the bridge leading to the diving site.

The diving rates. Since Darling is just ‘discovering scuba’ and will be diving with no license whatsoever, he was charged RM160 for equipment and coaching. I wanted to try too but the gas tank is very heavy hence I chickened-out :(

They assisted him in putting on the diving gear.

There goes the heavy gas tank. There are several sizes of gas tanks available (with the same pressure) to suit your size but I still find them heavy! @_@

Darling adjusting his goggles.

Here he was taught how to breathe using the mouth piece. It is not easy to suddenly breathe through your mouth instead of your nose but he got the hang of it after a while :) *Gigit bang, jangan tak gigit! *

Scuba Diving_7

All geared up and down he went. He was also taught how to ‘float walk’ in the bottom of the sea. It’s like walking on the moon?! Macam-lah he pernah walk on the moon! >_<

About an hour later, he resurfaced! Yeay! Darling is back! Phew.. *wipe sweat* By then it was already getting dark. He gestured the thumbs up sign means he’s happy-lah!

Asked him what he saw under the sea and he answered he met a mermaid, siap asked  for her FB lagi! Mau kena lepok my Darling nih!!! (=_=)

Contented with his underwater experience…

Ready to take the equipment off his back :D

A very happy Darling :D Dah! Now let’s go for dinner! :P

    This entry make me think about my Redang trip many years ago. That time with hubby (boyfriend then). We didnt go for scuba, just snorkelling and seeing the little white sharks swimming around us.

    We even thinking of going back, this time with the kids, but got to wait for my younger one to grow bigger. Now still small to enjoy the fun in beach and sea.

    Merryn Reply:

    yes Rose,

    Must wait for the little baby grow bigger a bit. then can enjoy the sand :)

    Some more, my travel partner later told me he suffered pain while scuba diving – made me more scared of trying it!! Glad William came back in one piece and met a mermaid as well! : D

    Merryn Reply:

    That was why I *wipe sweat* when I saw William came out of the water! phew…

    [Reply]

  • //

    Btw, did William sign something that said if anything happens to him during scuba diving, it will be completely his responsibility and risk? I shuddered at signing that! : D
