The Scuba Duo(Eric and Stacy) were amazing! Coming to Bonaire I knew I was going to do allot of snorkeling and I was really excited about that. I had already decided it wouldn’t be possible for me to get my scuba certification while on this trip for cost reasons. But when Eric and Stacy told me about the Discover Dive and the awesome deal they could provide, I reconsidered and realized how affordable that was for the experience I would get out of it! So I jumped right in, literally! Eric took me out for my first discover dive, and my first time ever using tanks, BCDs, regulators and etc. The only challenge I had to overcome was flooding my mask with water and then clearing it underwater. I felt panicky for this and resurfaced twice during this exercise(which was okay because we were in the shallows for this). On my third attempt after Eric talked me through it, I got it! That really was a good feeling, pushing past the fear and successfully clearing the mask and breathing normal again. That was the hardest part. The rest was easy and so much fun!
While down there at around 25 or 30 feet down, a bait ball of fish swam up to us and surrounded us! Eric said he had only had his first experience with this two months earlier! I thought it was amazing that I was blessed with such an experience on my first dive! Anything is possible even on a first dive, you never know what you will see!
The other divers in my group went with Eric and Stacy a total of 6 guided dives, with having in upwards of 3-5 divers accompanying them. And everyone spoke so highly of their experience with the Suba Duo. It was great! I always felt safe, always felt comfortable, and had loads of fun the whole dive!
