Ok so I know I told you that my new love was smoking shisha, but I was wrong, its diving! OH MY GOD, jumping jesus on a pogo stick, diving is the shit! I its soo magical down there, I felt like a real mermaid. I swear I found myself singing songs from the little mermaid while i was diving, I know it’s so wrong huh! I absolutely love it, words can’t describe! But I’m gonna try.
Well I think the first rad sea creature I saw was and octopus, I wish I had a picture of this but I don’t, I don’t have any pictures of cool creatures I saw at all. But the octopus was crazy, because there were these fish trying to feed off it, then the octopus was trying to swim away but it was more like crawling to the side as it was changing different colors, unreal! Then another cool lil creature I saw was a sea horse. Soo fucken cute, it had its lil tale curled around some sea grass as it was sleeping, swaying back and forth with the current, SEA HORSES FOREVER! I’ve also seen several manta rays flying gracefully through the sea like an eagle in the sky and some scary but cool looking eels, the first one was on my birthday and it was a big sucker, it was redish brown and it was coming out of its coral cave with its mouth wide open crazy looking, bad ass!
So my friend Maria let me borow her camera so i can take these lovely photo you see. But yeah the diving in the red sea is one of the best in the world, its pretty fansastical, I think I did a total of around 14 dives, out of the 14 dives my 3 favorite were the night dive and two places called the canyon and blue hole. The canyon is a reef that you can go about 18 meters down and see an amazing array of coral and 100 types of fish and then you can swim out further and then you see a canyon that you can dive another 30 meters down into, so you dive down slowly into this crevis of the sea and when you get down there its dark and you’re a little loopy from the compression and the oxygen. When you look up you see glowing light of the sun through the crack above. Theres also loin fish guarding their territory. You feel like you’re in a whole other world. Then you slowly ascend up one by one and dive around the canyon some more.
Then there’s the blue hole where about three feet from the shore off the reef you drop down immediately down into deep blue sea, it drops off to about 80 meters or more but divers but divers can only go 30 tp 60 meters. People die here almost every year mainly from nitrongen narcosis. Theres an absolutly an astonishing feeling you get slowing droping down into this blue planet, I kinda felt like an astronat. You look down and you see nothing but blue because its so deep. But the dive is incredable you drift down all along the side of the reef for bout 45 min or so, seeing nothing but coral mountains and sea life. Its spectacular.
I LOOK LIKE A SEA WITCH HUH!
