I wasnt planning to dive but when I noticed a dive center at my hotel I went for more information. They recommended the wreck dive and Side Reef 1. Best choice of my holiday!
First I did another shallow dive and then I went to Side Reef 1. It was great! Beautiful fishes and it was fun to see the statues.
Its awesome to dive at the museum! Even people without certificate can give it a try. I went to the wreck first. The Poseidon statue is impressive!
I was scared in the beginning but after the training I started to feel more confident.
Then I went to the museum and I am glad I did! It was awesome!
Its such a wonderful project. Well done! I enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone to dive there. Especially Camel Road.
