Introduced to serious challenges that can come with increased depth, trying sea conditions and newly introduced dive sites. Also came out with sobering insight to take it easy before I end up giving up on freediving and ultimately myself.
Hopping from one dive site to another with a colourful bunch welcoming in October on Cekli’s boat.
The long holiday weekend ended with a bang thanks to a mixed crew on board and newbie me on successful freedives with the pioneers.
With the plethora of tourist places in Southeast Asia, it is easy to overlook Brunei as a possible dive destination yet the dive scene among the locals and expats in Brunei alone is gaining considerable traction.
As a Bruneian citizen who also spent half her life growing up abroad, I believe that I can help balance out facts and preconceived notions by answering some questions that I usually get about Brunei and diving in this Sultanate. I will continue to do my best to acquaint readers with the country, first with its underwater gems and the dive community.
My first September 2017 dive turned to be a milestone of all sorts: certified AIDA 2 and successful fun dives at 3 notable diving locations in Brunei.
