Comments Most dives follow a typical pattern. Get ready, backflip or stride in, assemble the group, blow some air, and descend together. Clear your ears going down, and stop at some shallow depth to check out your gear, adjust buoyancy, and get squared away. Everyone gives the ok, and you head out. Thatís the basic pattern.

If youíre lucky, after a while you come upon something good, or maybe even great. In rare cases, you encounter something spectacular. Then you may experience the Wow Moment, that instant when you are awed by some sight, or panorama, or phenomenon of nature. Might stop you in your tracks. Well, not your tracks really, perhaps stop you in your bubbles. The Wow Moment doesnít happen every dive, or even that often. These days, youíre lucky if it happens at all. If things arenít going right, you might instead have the Oh No! Moment. In extreme cases, even the Oh ****! Moment.
