Fearless February: Into the Blue


During a trip to the Bahamas with my family over the holidays, I went scuba diving. I have gone a couple times with my family. I am not certified because I don’t go often enough so I normally just do the quick resort certification and do a shallower day. On my most recent trip, we dove around a small reef and a small sunken ship. It was really fun…until I spotted a giant Barracuda! Seriously. Those things terrify me. Needless to say, it was a great experience and I cannot wait to do it again!

Have you been scuba diving? Or done any snorkeling?

  • sofis

    I don’t have a picture of my most resent fearless adventure but for about 3 years ago me and my sister and a cousin was out taking a walk nearby our summerhouse when a bear came running out of the woods.

    I have never been so scared in my whole life and tought for sure that i was going to die. We dove into the woods on the other side of the road and fell like lumber. You know in those scary movies when you think the girls are assholes because they fall over every little root there is. We where those girls… but luckily for us the bear was equally scared and disappeard on the other side of the road. Lucky us!

    I got Scuba certified when I was 16. I’m a Marine Science major, so it is basically a necessity. This semester I’ll be working to get my advanced certification and doing a study abroad Maymester at Discovery Bay, Jamaica where we will be doing coral reed ecology and directed undergraduate research projects during the month that we’re there. Scuba is definitely worth the time for a certification… it’s just so calming to be in the water and be away from all the pressures and stress of everyday life.

  • Julia Mattis

    I have never been scuba diving, but cannot wait to go! I don””t know when I will be venturing into the beautiful water, but I will in my life time. I love doing activities outdoors.

  • Charlotte MW

    Yeah scuba diving can be cool. But I thing everybody should thing about the risk. A friend died during scuba dive. so i am not a fan anymore. before this happend i thought it is s amazing. but now…. i don’t know. maybe i change my mind some time.

  • Erika Bassaraba

    I have an I have been certified for 3 years :) But i’ve been diving in the Sea of Cortez since I was about 10 and snorkling ever since I could swim :). I actually want to go get my Masters degree in Maritime Archaeology.

  • melissa cowie

  • Kelly Burt

    This looks like so much fun!! I have never gone but would LOVE to in the future.

  • MelLY

    I have never been scuba diving but it looks like fun and I would love to go one day. I need to learn how to swim first though. Good for you for conquering your fear that day!

  • Karleigh Sergio

    I am in the Bahamas right now!!!!! So funny that you just posted this! Hahaha I mentioned the Baraccudas as well! Terrifying! I know!

  • FlipFlopGurl

    Your picture is adorable! This is me SCUBA diving in Cozumel, Mexico which is a great place to dive. It is drift diving so you just float along with the current. I certified in Monterey, CA and my first real dive was the next month in Cozumel. It was scary for me at first when I did the certification dives because I felt claustrophobic in the wet suit. But, once I got to dive in warm water in Mexico I was fine becauase we only wore light weight dive skins. Have not been diving in years but need to get back out there! http://www.laurenconrad.com/photo/view/16976/4156/19820/1

  • Katrin Ahrens

    I got certified this past summer in Newfoundland, Canada which has rather cold water. I love the natural beauty and silence of scuba diving. My dad has been diving for over 30 years and from him I got the push to start diving, he taught me to appreciate the silent beauty of the ocean and to preserve it as much as possible. I can’t wait to dive again.

  • Alexandra Dadisman

    So cool, Lauren! My parents and my boyfriend are really into scuba diving. It looks like fun (minus the fact that I am assuming you get a lot of yucky salt water in you mouth, no?) I need to get on this because swimming in a reef with a sunken ship sounds amazing!

    PS. Please check out my blog today because I am really excited about the post I wrote today about my experience as an extra on The Vampire Diaries!

  • Anna Cummings

    You look so legit!

  • Miriam Gronli

    Going for the first time in two or three days nearby Byron Bay in Australia. :D So excited.

  • Michelle Brodie

    I have only been scuba diving twice, both times in the Great Barrier Reef. I really enjoyed the shallow dive but when we went into the deep, DARK water, I freaked out! It was amazing to see so much coral, fish and giant clams. My favourite experience was snorkeling in Fiji though, 100s of fish surrounded us!! The secret, a couple told us before going in to get a coke bottle and fill it with small pieces of bread… the fish LOVED it.

    As for other ideas… I convince my friends every couple of months to do something ‘bucket list’ type. This month we hired scooters/ vespas and went down along the beach… once i got the hang of the handle controls, it was a lot of fun.

    Past activities we have done include; snow mobiling over a frozen lake, Ice/glacier walking, Absailing, dog sledding, hovercraft rides, going to a gun range, being a passanger on a 2 wheel stunt car and walking on water (in a bubble). :) Here are some of the photos:
