SCUBA DIVING PHOTOS

We had 5 in our group and none of us had ever been diving, this was our first time. Although a few of us were nervous, they went the extra mile to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. Our first dive was at the wall, then the second was at Catalina Island. Both were awesome! Then lunch on the beach was prepared while we were on our 2nd dive. I must say I had low expectations for the food, but couldn't have been more wrong! It was the ONLY meal I loved during my whole trip.

The Highlight Of My Vacation!

We started by doing a wall dive, going to depths of 80 feet. Lots of fish and beautiful corals. Then we did a reef dive, ``The Aquarium``, where the depth got to only about 35 feet. But the sea life was incredible, especially the seahorse we saw! There were eels, a flounder, lobster, and an abundance of fish. Visibility was great!
