Few days ago I came across an event shared by Backpack outdoors in Facebook and I called my flat mate saying isn’t it something we really wanted to go from a long time. Let’s book the seats and she immediately booked 2 seats. The Itinerary was just perfect that u do not need to worry about a single thing before the event.
30 People from different places and different profession, Different background and with the same purpose of relaxing on weekend/to experience adventurous trip with their backpacks and lots of excitement reported at 10.30 PM on 19th Feb 2016 Friday at a common place in Pune .A Bus arranged by Backpack outdoors team started for Malvan at 11 PM from JM Road, Pune with total 30 People and 4/5 from organizer team.
It took 11.30 hours to reach our destination .We had our breakfast quickly and started for Scuba Diving at 11.30 AM.1 by 1 30 people experienced 1 of the most amazing thing in the world.
At first I was little terrified, because it was my first scuba diving experience and it was weird breathing by mouth through an apparatus. But the encouragement from my co-campers and the trainers made it easy. I learned the different signs from the instructor for underwater conversation. The guide slowly took me underwater and I was completely astonished to explore the underwater world. There was complete silence, only sound I could hear is sound of bubbles from my exhale. At 1 time I was completely lost in the wonder world that I forgot to breathe for a moment. It was the most amazing scene I have even seen till now. The beautiful corals, Dead corals, Fishes of different color, different shape and different type. The diving Guide took some pics of me with the fishes and corals. Finally it ended and was an experience of total 20 to 25 mins, but felt like only few moments of awesomeness.
