Our final excursion outside our Hotel resort was a snorkeling and scuba diving trip. Princess and my husband have always wanted to try scuba diving and we were surprised to find out that in Greece children as young as 8 can go scuba diving with certain rules. While Little Man was too young to give this a try, he and I enjoyed snorkeling. While the Aegean Sea is by no means as pretty as the carribean with colorful corals and fish it is a nice place to try scuba diving for the first time.
Getting our instructions for safety
Little Man not to thrilled to be wearing the wet suit but he needed to wear it in order to float while snorkeling.

Getting use to the equipment and the water
Practicing breathing with the scuba gear.
They had one instructor assigned to be within 2 or 3 feet of my daughter at all times while under water. Here they are getting their final instructions.
Princess was fearless, she couldn't wait to get below water!
I on the other hand was a nervous wreck watching her go under water!
Here the instructors are helping her get set for neutral buoyancy.
And she is under water. They went under for about 20 minutes and then rested a bit and went again about an hour later for another scuba dive. Princess loved it and wants to take lessons:)
After an exhausting day at sea we headed back to the Hotel to relax, by the pool:).
