I am going to let you in on one of my deepest, darkest Belize secrets. The deepest blue hole of secrets. 9 years ago, I got certified as a PADI Scuba Diver. The training was interesting and a bit challenging, I love getting in the water, the dive shop was super fun and easy to work with and…
…SCUBA diving left me a bit underwhelmed. I went a few more times and let my new hobby just fade into the sunset.
Clearly I am one out of many. Millions around the world LOVE to dive. Travel near and far just to do it.
Belize is one of the top spots in the world to do it. And I live here.
I’ve been thinking about brushing up – trying it again. My mind has slowed down a bit – that took leaving NYC and about 10 years. Still working on it.
And I’ll try to head out without expectations but that will now be VERY difficult. I found some INCREDIBLE photos on a friend’s facebook page. Carol is a first time diver, newly certified and diving with Premier Divers, the brand new boutique dive shop on Ambergris Caye, and LOOK AT WHAT SHE IS SEEING!
She credits it all to her dive shop and her camera. This cute little Olympus – I’ll put the affiliate link below. Maybe I can save up some Amazon cred so I can get one myself…and maybe a drone too.
Dream big, right?
Here are the gorgeous pictures that are inspiring me to get back under the water.
And then the SHOW STOPPERS! I would just die.
The most beautiful thing in the world.
It ticks off pretty much every one of my 8 Favorite Sea Creatures. Almost.
Here’s the camera. In case you were wondering. I think it’s time to jump in.
