Colombia – Part II – Scuba Diving

The second part of my trip was spent Scuba diving.  I spent four days in Taganga with Poseidon Dive Center.  It was fantastic.

I did the following

  • Deep diving to almost 40 meters
  • Drift diving where you just drift with a current
  • Night diving where I saw crabs fighting, giant colorful lobster, and fish sleeping in the water
  • Regular diving where I saw fish of every color and tons of clams, moray eels, etc

The water was about 75 degrees which was perfect for me for skin diving.  Every day I dove Nitrox so I never felt tired afterwards.

I also got my Advanced Open Water PADI certification, so that was nice.

Got this because of the four day Cuidad Perdido (Lost City) trek in Colombia.  It will be hot and humid.  I needed a pack that would keep the gear off my back.  The mesh back does the job.  I also needed a hip belt because of my shoulder surgery.  This was on clearance, so it fit the bill.

It’s quite light by my standards and easily big enough for the trip.
