Well, today was the first time I did any sort of diving for the first time. It was free diving out in Pacifica, CA, and well to say the least it was a good and bad experience.
Let me state the bad first. The water was really nice and everything, however the weather didn't hold up like it was supposed to, so it was really choppy, and the visibility was less than 4 feet. So we couldn't really catch much of anything.
The good. Being my first time out there, and not used to the ocean, including the taste, the feel, etc etc, it was a lot of fun. Now granted I didn't do a whole lot other than just swim >_> lol, it was mostly due to the fact that my body physically isn't used to swimming like that, plus my body isn't accustomed to the water itself. It would be something I would absolutely love to go back and spear fish some more and experience more of it, but I never realized it really is something you need to get acclimated to.
With all that in mind, it was still a good time and I would love to do it again. But maybe next time, I would love to be able to scuba dive :).
