|SCUBA DIVING TIPS - PUERTO GALERA PHILIPPINES
Scuba diving is a wonderful adventure and definitely something that water-lovers and adventure-seekers should try. While out in the water, safety should be your number one priority, so here are some tips to help you stay safe, while enjoying yourself.
Firstly, especially when you are new to scuba diving, it is important to never go out alone. Having a dive-buddy with you at all times will ensure that if you ever need any assistance, someone is there to help you.
Before you dive anywhere, you should always familiarise yourself with the area in which you will be diving. While you are still at home, after playing partypoker or replying to e-mails, look for information about the area you plan to dive on the internet and see if there are any specific notes regarding it. If you are still learning, then the dive staff will tell you anything more that you need to know and you should pay close attention to what they say.
To make the process of diving a lot more pleasant and safe, you should ensure you are in good health, both physically and mentally before heading out. That way, you are better equipped to deal with any situations that may arise, and you will find the dive a lot easier. You should always obey any local laws or regulations that may extend to the water in which you are diving, and always be aware of your surroundings.
When breathing compressed air, it is important that you do not breath-hold or skip breath. In the interest of safety, your equipment must be well-maintained. Check it regularly and fix any problems thoroughly and immediately. As long as you are careful and properly prepared, you will enjoy the experience, so get out there and start improving your scuba diving skills.
