Discovery Diving at Academy Bay
Daniela and I embarked on our adventure in Puerto Ayora
, with me having about 80 dives of experience under my belt. However, it was Daniela's first time, so we didn't know what to expect. We tried on our diving gear in the afternoon, and everything was set for our dive at 2 pm the next day. Our dive master, Anthony, patiently explained everything to Daniela and assisted her throughout the process, from helping her put on her 7mm wetsuit to adjusting her BCD in the water.
It was an unforgettable experience for Daniela as it was her first dive. We captured some amazing pictures to cherish the moment. The bay was stunning, and we were back at the hotel by 5 pm after completing two dives. We were fortunate to witness a magnificent school of Salemas (Sardines), Eagle rays, an array of fish, and even a baby shark. The water temperature was perfect at 25 degrees Celsius, and the water was crystal clear, adding to the beauty of the dive. It was truly the best dive we had ever experienced, all within the bay.
