Night diving in Providencia

After a year and a half not diving, I thought I was going to take it easy at first, however, nothing ever happens as planned and I did not do one, nor two, but three dives on the same day, finishing with a night dive.

Diving has the very rare ability to relax you whilst at the same time getting your heart pumping with adrenaline.

The excitement of descending into the depths mixes with the beauty of nature, the colours of the corals and its fish, and brings inner calm and peace.

I am surprised at the good state of the coral around here, by the diversity of the fish. While other areas of the Caribbean have suffered from over fishing, and climate change has led to coral bleaching, here the colours are intense and big and small fish mix.

This has been my favourite ship wreck dive so far, probably because the water is much calmer and you get to see more, including a large nurse shark.
