Diving could be fun, yet restrictive at the same time. The time and depth limit, acclimatize issue and buoyancy, and sinus sickness could hamper the diving experience. The underwater world is pretty, but not as beautiful as I would imagine. Problem due to the many dead corals, poor visibility and a big patch of darkness in the water.
Somehow diving isn’t just about diving. Is about the people, the sea, the lodge, the boat ride, the waiting and the island. It’s fun, but it’s not free (it is confined and costly).
Nevertheless, it is still a pretty good experience worth going back once in a while.
