Mauritius - 12th Sep 2013 - Undersea Adventure

One whole day out at sea, in the sea, and on various cool transports and equipment. It was one heck of an adventure and life experience!

After taking pictures around the hotel which was near the jetty to set off for our first undersea activity, it was finally time! The first activity was the submarine ride. Our first time in a submarine, and while it was not extremely exciting, it was still quite an eye-opener!

A genuine shipwreck!

Being in a submarine, being able to see the seabed, and seeing a shipwreck was quite an experience, however the excitement level was quite meh.

The next activity made up for what was lacking in the submarine adventure though. Here comes the Subscooter Ride!!! I was totally impressed and bewildered at the technology of this as it was pressure that kept the water from entering the space where our heads were.

Oh hai! K and I happy in our Subscooter!

Got to thank the then-boyfriend-now-fiance for letting me drive the Subscooter while he be the photographer! And an awesome photographer he was for managing to catch this perfect clear shot of me feeding the fish!

And finally, it was time for our last underwater adventure! Like the Subscooter, the same pressure technology was used for the helmet (which weighed a lot to act as weights to enable us to walk on the sea bed).

The entire undersea experience was pretty good, and definitely worth going at least once in a lifetime! And I shall end off this post with a picture of my SIL and I being photobombed by my brother and a crew.
