My First Scuba Diving Experience With MV Nautica

My First Scuba Diving Experience With MV Nautica

When I went for my Advance Adventure course that was my first scuba diving experience on MV Nautica liveaboard. It was a whole new experience for

I felt excited as this was my first liveaboard experience! I heard many wonderful things about doing a liveaboard. My Open Water  Diving course to Tioman was tedious to say the least. Travelling for over 8 hours on the bus, lugging my gear through customs was such a chore. Finally, I was able to relax like a king this trip!

Once boarding up the boat, I was immediately curious to find out how my cabin looked like. After the initial briefing, we were led to our rooms. I also managed to take a look at the other rooms, of course with the permission of my boat mates.

Wow... ! Right at the top of the deck, we have the Premium Seaview Cabin. Unfortunately for me, this was not my room. I can only admire its comfortable queen bed and cozy room from afar.

My room was the Superior Seaview Cabin, sharing with 2 other dive buddies. Although it did not have any queen sized beds, it was still very comfortable and I had plenty of good sleep in it.MV nautica -superior-seaview-cabin

The only different for Deluxe Seaview Cabin is that there is no provision for ensuite. Toilet and bath is shared from the dive deck.

The Dining area was actually really beautiful! I spent most of my time here as it was a great place to chill and hang out with my other diving buddies. We played games, listened to music, and even watched movies!

Mv Nautica - Delicious MealFood was incredible! Served buffet style, with a great variety of dishes. Tom Yum soup, Beef Rendang, Fried Prawns, and of course the finale, a BBQ dinner! I felt full and satisfied at the end of each meal.

There was other area that I can chilled out and relax. Like the sun deck where I can suntan or enjoy the sea breeze during the day and see the stargazing at night.


Advance Adventure Course

Scuba diving - Advance adventure courseDuring my Advanced Adventurer course, I did 5 different boat dives: Deep Dive, Wreck Dive, Navigation, Night Dive and trained my Perfect Buoyancy as well.

The good thing about advance adventure course is that there is Perfect Buoyancy which usually will be conducted on the first dive. The instructor will emphasize more on the breathing technique, the streamline posture and the finning methods. After the course, I really felt my bouyancy Mv Nautica-Advance Adventure Coursecontrol had improve and my confidence level too.

I liked the night dive the most - when I was underwater, it was pitch black! The only light I had was the torch in my hand. It was a whole new experience and as marine creatures I had never seen before came out at night!

Although it was fun and exciting but there were a few important points that instructor wanted us to take note. During the night dive, we had to level up our awareness like where was your buddy, what was around you and the method to signal etc...

  1. Your trip seems to be really awesome! I bet you were super excited since it was your first diving experience. The cabin looks amazing and cozy. They view from the cabin as well, letting you enjoy the wide ocean while we’re relaxing. The first time diving can be a handful to learn about. But it is definitely worth it. Night dive is a totally different level of thrill. Yes, as you said, it is pitch black! As we all know, shouts, cry, can be left unheard when we are under the water, so yes, we have to understand the signal and to always keep your awareness. Nonetheless, who doesn’t come to love diving after the nervousness of the first dive?
