As snorkelling had been so fantastic there, I decided to go scubadiving the next day. Since I don’t have the PADI, I was gonna go for a “batismo” dive. Very expensive, but I really wanted to try.
I went to the dive school to register, and they asked me to sign a form in Portuguese. When I asked if it was available in English, they said it wasn’t. That’s professionalism for you, on a very expensive touristic island. I won’t let any foreigners ever complain about Greece being a country where they don’t speak English…
My partner / scuba diving instructor was very nice, however I soon realised I was either stressed about the dive, or just plain tired. I went 6-7 metres deep, and then I started feeling sick… so I had to go up to the surface and spend the rest of the day throwing up and sleeping.
That was the worst dive ever! At least I tried… And I do intend to take the PADI sooner or later!
