Before During And After Diving Tips That Can Save Your Life

divingBEFORE

  • Prepare your body and be fit. Having a healthy body is important for those who want to try diving, because even a seemingly simple cold can actually cause problems for you underwater.
  • Sign up with a reputable diving school. Not only does this guarantee that you’ll get the best training, it also comes with equipment and boats that are in good condition all the time, as well as experienced staff.
  • Do not deviate from the dive plan. The instructor has probably formed one to make sure the dive is successful, so keep his instructions in mind. This is for your safety anyway.
  • You can never be too sure, so always check your equipment before every dive, even if they’re just new or just had them serviced.
  • Do the buddy check. Sometimes even if you have seemed to check everything, you still miss something that another person can spot right away.
  • Buy diving insurance and travel insurance at http://www.divemasterinsurance.com/. We do not wish for anything to happen but there’s nothing wrong with getting insurance to get you covered above and below water just in case.

 

DURING

  • Breathe normally. While it’s natural to hold your breath when you’re free swimming, you don’t have to do that when diving. You’ll have your oxygen tank to let you breath underwater.
  • The change of pressure can injure your inner ear, so equalizing often as you descend is vital.
  • Stay with your buddy or guide throughout the dive to ensure safety. In case you lose track of them, look for them for about a minute, after that if you still can’t locate them slowly ascend. They would do the same thing in that situation.
  • Keep track of your air consumption. You might miscalculate the amount you need to ascend so don’t wait until your almost out before you resurface.
  • Know your depth limit and stay within it. Diving insurance have a 40 meters limit for divers, you go over that and you get invalidated.
  • It’s not a race so you don’t have to go too fast. Besides you’ll be able to see more the slower you go.
  • As much as possible, do not touch anything. You might damage the corals reels if you do and hurt yourself too since most of them are sharp.
  • Ascend slowly all the time. This way you prevent nitrogen from penetrating your bloodstream and cause decompression sickness.

 

AFTER

  • Store your gear properly. You don’t want it to get damaged or cause damage to you or the others if anyone happens to trip over it.
  • Debrief with your buddy and guide. This may help improve your experience and skills next time you go for a dive.
  • Don’t try to brush it off if you feel strange. Tell your guide how you feel so he may help you right away in case something is wrong.
  • Wait for at least a day before you dive again. This is how long it takes for the nitrogen to dissipate.
