1. just try Feeling relax while diving its funny journey.
I f you are entering scuba diving for the first time it might be so overwhelmed with just everything, from very new breathing equipments that you probably are not used to, the underwater environment and the creatures that are found there, some very breath-taking while others very scary, this might develop some anxiety issues and prompt confusion right under water.
If you find yourself in such a situation, all you need to do is just relax and focus on what your instructor will tell you to do. Always listen to your instructor he/ she will guide you through everything. Don’t panic or get restless under water.
2. Put your health first.
Just never underestimate your health issues when you do scuba diving, first as you dive you will get involved a lot in body movements, this cannot work if you are not in good health, and it can be very dangerous if your health really gets worse while you are underwater.
Another thing is that the temperatures of the waters are quite low, a condition that is so crucial when you are having health problems. Just remember not to ever attempt diving when you know your health isn’t fine.
3. Move slowly like a turtles
I understand the excitement that comes along with diving, the floating and the free movement, it’s all fun but don’t let it get into your head and start moving with speed like you are in some kind of a competition. When you move very fast in water you are going to use more energy because the resistance that you get from water is more than the one we face from the air back here on land.
You may end up using a lot of energy after covering just a small distance and fail to go on. Always remember to move slowly, it will save a lot of your energy.
4. Take breaks between your breathing patterns.
Don’t get afraid of this, you won’t die! In fact it will save you a lot. Okay, what I am meaning here is that when you breathe out, take a very short break before you breathe in and go on with the pattern. These breaks you keep taking will help to make sure that you are breathing using the lungs hence less oxygen is used and you will have more time under the water.
5. Keep Communicating
This is actually the most important thing you need to do. You will be diving either with a crew or your instructor, you will need to communicate each and every time just to make sure that you are on the same page and you are safe. Make sure you talk to each other to ascertain if there is any problem and if there is any, how can you deal with it.
6. Don’t remove your regulator from your mouth.
If you want to stay alive and come out of water safely just don’t try to remove your regulator out of your mouth. When you dive deeper and that is what everyone wants, there is less or even no air supply and so you have to entirely rely on your oxygen tank. If you tried to remove the regulator from your mouth at a very deep height you will suffocate due to lack of air.
7. Don’t drag too much weight.
carrying or dragging a lot of weight with you can be very demanding since you will be forced to use a lot of air as you move. The thing any diver would hate is to run out of air while you are in water, which is so dangerous. Try as much as you can to reduce the amount of weight you drag around you.
8. Check everything before you submerge.
Now you have just gotten into water but you haven’t submerged yet right? All you have to do now is check the very necessary things before you dive deep. Check if there is a current or not because it may affect you greatly, also check if the weight belt is in place and lastly never forget to check on the crew you are diving with or the instructor if you have one.
9. Don’t forget your map.
The map is very important and you better not enter the water without it. How else can you even reach your diving spot without a map, also make sure you are able to read the map. Keep note the direction of the sun and the current.
10. Get right the briefing before you go diving.
Before you start diving there is always a briefing given on what to expect, this is where you should be extremely attentive. Always ask about anything you feel like you don’t understand.
If you check out these tips you won’t have a problem diving at any depths.
11. Look for a funny team that can earn you the experience and confidence in a diving trip
Often you need to gain confidence first and experience second in the first dive trips and this makes it easier to dive in each time and make it more comfortable and fun where you can search for a team through sites such as TripAdvisor which will provide you and shows you the extent of satisfaction beginners in diving as well as people experience
12. Choosing a diving point is the secret
In the beginning, you need to choose the appropriate diving point that matches your current diving needs and which suits your current level of diving, such as temperature, water clarity and the prevailing weather conditions in the area. Also, people get used to that area so that you get the experience of acquiring the skill to explore the place and learn more about Diving places to make diving more fun and trusting away from accidental accident exposure and keeping your safety always is your priority while you enjoy!
