Don’t Just Start Swimming & Diving
Dive safety is of paramount importance when scuba diving, and there are a number of things to consider to help keep you safe underwater. One of the most important things to do is to always use a dive charter when planning your dive.
Dive Charter Tender Boat
A dive charter is a professional organisation that can help you plan and execute your dive safely. They will be able to transport you using a dive tender boat and will have a wealth of experience and knowledge about the area you are diving in, and they will be able to advise you on the best way to stay safe.
Stay Safe on Your Diving Trip
When using a dive charter, you will need to follow their safety procedures. This may include things like having a pre-dive briefing, using a dive plan and having a dive leader. Following the safety procedures of your dive charter will help to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable dive.
If you plan to go scuba diving in Fiji, there are many marine reserve sites to check out while on one of our ship cruises. If you want to advance beyond Captain Cook Snorkelling, you will want to know some basic safety before advancing beyond a shore dive. Here are some tips to help you stay safe while diving on your discovery cruise:
Get trained and certified
This is the most important thing you can do to stay safe while diving. A certified diver has completed a training course and has the knowledge and skills to safely dive. Keep your skills refreshed by diving regularly or take a PADI Reactivate.
Use dive gear that is well maintained
Your dive gear is your lifeline to the surface. Make sure that your dive gear is well maintained and in good working condition.
Use a dive buddy
A dive buddy is someone who is trained and certified to dive with you. A dive buddy can help you if you have a problem underwater.
Check the weather conditions before you dive
Diving in bad weather can be very dangerous. Make sure you check the weather conditions before you dive.
Know your dive site
Before you dive, make sure you know about the dive site. Know the depth of the water, the currents, and any hazards.
Make a safety stop
A safety stop is a stop that you make at a certain depth to make sure you are safe. The minimum requirement for a safety stop should be for 3 minutes at 5m.
Don't touch anything
Underwater, there are many things that can harm you. Don't touch anything while you are diving.
Don't move too much
Moving around underwater can stir up the sediment and reduce visibility. If you need to move, do it slowly and carefully.
Be careful of your air supply
Your air supply is limited. Be careful not to use too much air while you are diving by monitoring your pressure gauge frequently.
Be prepared for an emergency
Make sure you know what to do if there is an emergency.
