7 Most Important Scuba Diving Tips Before You Dive In

Scuba diving has become a very popular recreational activity, which is enjoyed by many. All we need to do is take some time out of our busy daily schedule to enjoy the bliss and mesmerizing beauty of the sea. Scuba diving in Andaman gives you an opportunity to enjoy your vacation with your loved one.

You have to get trained to dive underwater to be safe so here are few tips to keep in mind before you decide to scuba dive.

#1. Select a Good Scuba Trainer

Selecting a good scuba trainer is as important as your diving gear. Let your trainer know all your requirements and what you want to learn in the sessions. You will be advised about the best dive experience accordingly. There are many courses like Discover scuba dive, PADI Open water, PADI advanced open water, SSI open water, SSI advanced adventurer and specialty courses like a deep diver, Drift diver etc.

#2 Tell Your Medical Conditions to Trainer

Let your trainer know your medical conditions and ask him if you are fit to take up the training process. If doubt it is best to check with your doctor before you sign up. Your dive leader/school can only advise but is not the final authority to give you the go ahead. Only your doctor can!

#3 Diving with a Buddy

Diving with a buddy is always a better option than diving alone. Some people feel adventurous and want to dive alone. Do not take any chance, as a solo dive can put you at great danger. In case of an emergency, it is always your buddy who can come to your assistance.

#4 Learn from Professional

Learn from professionals and keep on learning. Great professionals will keep on improving your diving style regardless how many dives you have completed. Be open to their suggestions.

#5 Never be Overconfident

Never be overconfident of your abilities. Every dive has its own challenges and don’t be self-assured that nothing can harm you. Be realistic and safe when you dive underwater. Plan your dive and dive your plan.

#6 Don’t Feel Pressure

Don’t ever feel peer pressure! Although diving can be done by everyone, if you do not feel good or comfortable have the courage to say NO. There is always the next time.

#7 Select Right Diving Operator

Select the right diving operator. Lots of guest divers follow the instructions of their agent who get a kickback from the dive operator. This does not necessarily mean that every agent opts for your quality. A cheaper deal does not necessarily mean a better experience. Such discount mostly implies a discount on your quality or safety.

It is imperative to do your research before you start your holiday and find out what is on offer before you commit!

With the above tips, you can plan your dive activity with your loved ones.
