On the last post, Hayley and I were on the way to get qualified for open water scuba diving. As part of the training course, we had some theory lessons and some practical lessons in a swimming pool
Of course putting what we had learnt into the real environment was also important. To get qualified we had to do 4 dives. As crazy as it sounds we chose to do all 4 dives in one day, most people would split them into two days. However, we are a group of over-achievers. Hayley and I really want to get them done so we can go scuba diving on the upcoming holiday in the Philippines. (Hint hint, more blog post soon if I have time to sit down and write all these adventures. )
Open Water Sessions
We boarded a specialist dive boat from Sai Kung and they took us all the way to Sharp Island. It took us about 10 minutes to get there, as opposed to over an hour on a kayak. Hayley and I have been to Sharp Island for a few times and every time it surprised us as we were able to see different things each time we went. Certainly this time too. I did not imagine what we would be able to see.

Find Nemo and His Friends
We were very surprised by the amount and the variety of wild life and corals in the sea of Hong Kong. That was something that we were not expecting.
After four intensive open water dives and 2 hours in the pool on the previous day. We were now certified.
Finally, thank you for Alex for taking pictures for us and allow us to post them on this blog and on facebook.
