"Don't waste an opportunity to explore the ocean's treasure trove," I heard whispers all around me. And suddenly, I began getting transformed into an adventure freak, ready to take on challenges, ready to explore my own potential. The only solace was the fact that I would be among professionals who'd guide and watch over me as I took a dip.
