Pacific Ocean near Cairns, QLD
0 km (0.0 mi)

Went off on our first dive at 6am this morning. A little hard to wake up but we all kind of struggled down to the water. Ate breakfast and then went back into the water for our last "training" dive. For that the camera guy was down with us and after we took our masks off and put them back on we were finished with the training. The camera guy got video of us taking turns holding the beer can and wearing sunglasses. After we came up we all let out a little cheer since we were certified divers. yay.

Moved to another reef in the afternoon, this one was a lot more active. There were fish everywhere below the boat. I went out snorkeling for awhile and took my first underwater pictures. There was marine life everywhere. The really big fish kept hanging out below the boat.

Later that afternoon Sun (my dive buddy) and I went out on our first dive. I had my camera with me and took a lot of photos. After you get below a certain depth you start to lose certain colors. Red is the first to go. Apparently your blood turns green if you get cut below water.

Later that night we went on a night dive. That was pretty interesting. We went everywhere, it was a bit spooky to say the least. It was a little easier to know where you are because there were green lights pointing down into the water from the bow and stern of the dive boat.

The night on the boat was really rough and I had to try my darndest to keep from throwing up. Made for a really sleepless night.
