Our second day in Boracay involved helmet diving and a visit to Puka Beach. For a non-swimmer like me, it was a real struggle to see better views of the underwater world by only looking through goggles while wearing a life jacket. No matter how I wanted to do a free dive, I couldn't cos it's not advisable if you don't know how to swim like a pro.
