It does take a lot of guts to jump into the Indian Ocean without a clue on how to swim. The feeling is still sinking into me, the beauty of the ocean, the mesmerizing underwater life and the depth of course. Another bucket list item ticked off!
Snorkeling truly was a one of kind experience that will be repeated again and probably again. I know, its too late to set a New Year resolution, but then I guess I will add ‘learn how to swim’ into the list as well.
Abundance of marine life and the beautiful coral reefs are the reason why Maldives is one of the best pick destination for divers around the world. Having no clue whatsoever about swimming with two absolute strangers who claimed to be the guides did take a lot of guts to gather.
Once you are in the middle of nowhere, actually let me correct myself, middle of somewhere in the Indian ocean, all you would do is start appreciating the underwater lives than your own. You don’t need to be a professional diver to enjoy this experience. All you need is a life jacket and a silicone mask to enter the magical world of blue.
We loved the way those pretty colourful fishes were always in a group, if you are even lucky you will spot tuna, turtle, eels and many more. Some fishes looked like they have reflectors on them – shining through the depth. The corals are another highlight, they are such beautiful creations by the nature, but beware they can be a little porky too. Some do snorkeling by the night, its an adventure at another level all together.
Overall, the experience was an unbelievable, unbeatable one! Bucket list ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️
