7 tips for safe diving

Wednesday, 28 June 2017 05:16
Do you want to dive? Well, exploring the underwater environment is a
fascinating experience. However, no one can't start diving without
some prior knowledge. Here are 8 tips that you must keep in mind
during your first dive.

1 Prepare yourself well

Diving is not the same as other sports, like running where you just
need to put on a pair of running shoes and start running. In diving,
you need previous training with a dive instructor to guide you through
your first steps. At Travel With Options, we offer you a complete
catalogue of diving courses that cover all stages of learning.

2 Never dive alone

It is the golden rule of diving. Find at least one
person and always dive together, do not stray more than 3 meters from
one another. It is also important to communicate frequently with signs
your diving partners understand.
