Sounds like how I felt the two times I went snorkling. The first time, I started hyperventilating in the water and an instructor had to calm me down. But then you see the sights and it makes everything okay.

Except I didn't have a special someone to go with. That probably makes it even better. *jealous*

Hi Ari -- I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has a hard time with the concept of breathing under water! I'm going to try to learn to scuba dive. We'll see how it goes.

And, yeah, SG made it all better. SG stands for Scuba Guy, after all. ;)

Uh, it shows all over your face!

Oh my brother and dad learned how to scuba dive! Looks like so much work though!

Btw, I learned to snuba a few years back... cross between snorkeling and scuba diving in that you have an oxygen tank you breathe from, but it's on a raft above you.. I had the same freaking out problem. I think it was a combo of breathing through my mouth, the weights around my waist, and the cold water. But like I said, the instructor just had me look down into the water and focus on breathing and it completely calmed me down!
