We got certified last summer. This vacation would have been our first "real" dives, not counting our certification dives.
We ended up not diving, as when we got to the dive site a couple miles off shore, the waves and current were pretty rough and I got extremely sea sick on the boat. When I got in the water, with the mixture of already being sick and having thrown up over the side of the boat about 5 times, then being in the rough water where the conditions weren't quite as I was expecting, I ended up panicing and chose not to dive. I just wasn't in the right physical and mental state to go underwater, and didn't feel comfortable going through with the dive. Craig chose to stay with me, so unfortunately he didn't get to dive either.
Worse part, they couldn't take me back to shore, nor did they have anyone working onshore who could come with another boat to get us. So I had to stay on the boat for another 3 hours while sea sick and throw up about 20 more times.
