Dive 3
OF 12

My first dive from a boat. Great visibility today as well. Started off a little less deep than the rest of the group, which turned out to be a great thing. First off, we saw an eagle ray. They are very rare to find at this time. And short after, we saw a black finned reef shark. Juan, my diving instructor, started swimming against it, and I followed shortly after, with the heart in my throat. The shark even came closer itself, and at one point we were only 5 meters apart. A truly majestic sight. After this, we also saw a sea turtle, before heading back to the boat.
