Day 11

Umkomaas trip starts


Umkomaas! Umkomaas! Umkomaas!

The day finally arrived, and excitement filled us as we hit the road down to Durban. We went down in two separate combi’s, with us Pietie’s all in the H1 with JP, JP’s friend Ruan, Ri-Christel, as well one of Geko’s clients, Bennie. After a good trip of about 8 hours, with good music and company, as well as many naps, we arrived at Blue Ocean dive resort.

The Blue Ocean crew were so friendly and welcoming! The resort was super neat and well looked after. And the beds super comfy! 

We unpacked all our baggage and gear, with the help of Blue Ocean’s “minions”. Thereafter we got the chance to get to know everyone. The dive community is definitely something to get involved in, with some of the most friendly and fun people you’ll ever meet. We chilled at the bar/restaurant, ate and altogether had a super fun time. We also went down to the beach later the night, us pietie’s and the minions. The ocean was so astonishing at night.

I can’t wait for my first ocean dive tomorrow in Umkomaas’ beautiful ocean!
