The last instructions before going underwater, at this point we also put on our flippers...for some reason it was almost impossible to get a good balance after I put them on...

Getting suited up, putting on the condom, err I meant the wet suit was an experience in itself. Her Tal is checking to make sure that this man in black is her father before sending him into the deep. Itzik on the right side of the photo is getting his weights put on.

This was the instructor Dekel (in blue/black suit) giving us our instructions before we suited up.

This is ME, yes me....Posiden/Neptune had a beard did he not !!

Once we finished the dive everyone came out to see if we had not turned into fish.

This is what Itzik looks like underwater...

And this is me, giving the OK sign, not once, but TWICE.

This is how an introductory dive is done, the diver on the bottom is guided by an experienced dive instructor from above. He also has a special instrument that can inflate a vest if you get in trouble, it will shoot you to the surface in an emergency. But on the dive the instructor can use it to regulate your dive depth, helping you keep a certain depth.
