SCUBA DIVING AT PINDAWON WALL, SAMAL ISLAND

This is my entry to the Week 23 of <a href="http://techieshe.com" title="Techie She">Techie She Weekly Giveaways</a>. This week’s lucky blogger will win $10 Paypal credits from Borris of <a href="http://sirrob.info" title="Snapshots as They Happen" class="broken_link">Snapshots as They Happen</a>.

my trip to Davao late last year scored the most remarkable travel i had for 2011, as there were countless of reason why it is unforgettable and to name one, it's our underwater escapade at  PINDAWON WALL in SAMAL ISLAND.

PINDAWON WALL -  is a marine sanctuary and according to my google search, it is the most beautiful and spectacular site in Samal Island. This dive site is located off the east coast of Samal where different tropical marine life thrives such as Gorgonians and black corals. there is also a small cave somewhere at the hangs and when our dive guide brought us inside it only took me a few minutes inside as i got a claustrophobic attack.

oh wait, my diving buddy describe the wall as more like a cliff underwater, imagine us circling around a cliff trailing awesome corals and fishes., whoa! what an elating experience.

Our dive here was our first in Mindanao area, and we haven't brought any of our scuba gear as it wasn't a planned dive. good thing is that we brought enough budget that we afford to pay the dive cost that the Maxima Aquafun resort offers.

We dive as deep as 80 feet below sea level, and for about 45-minutes, we enjoyed the amazing scenes underwater, acquainted with different creatures. And while in there you only hear your own breathing or the sound of bubbles produced every time you exhaled the compressed air from your scuba tank.  Albeit afraid of the deep and my clumsiness underwater i'd loved to do scuba diving again and i hope next time it would be at BORACAY or PALAWAN.  :D

our dive guide took us a snapshots with this big white clams and playful fishes as background for a souvenir.

the unforgettable white clam with me bubbling behind...

holding my breath to get a clearer shot...

    1. nakakatakot para sa amateur at kulang sa confidence na tulad ko, pero sabi ko nga lakasan lang ng loob, at saka dapat marunong kang sumunod sa mga instructions when your down there.... and most of all dapat supportive ang mga diving buddies mo ...:D

  7. hi PS... pwede pa-request na ichange ung borris.info to sirrob.info? i got it mixed up. thanks for joining and good luck!

    question, pwede bang magsuot ng eyeglasses behind those eyegear na suot mo? kung hindi pwede, hindi ko rin pala magagawa yan dahil wala ding makikita ang legally blind na katulad ko, hehe.
