Scuba Diving Tips for Beginners

1) Always go for a perfect fitting scuba dive gear. The mask you wear must be comfortable and check that there is no scope for water leakage. The BCD must be snug enough and it should not ride around in the water. Booties and fins should be comfortable and should not cause discomfort or blisters.To find out if you are ready to dive, look at this site.

2) Always monitor the air supply. You should always practice to control and reduce your air consumption. Try to swim slowly and efficiently and don’t waive your arms around or make rapid body movements. Take long slow inhalations and exhale equally long. Dont hold your breath. For safe scuba diving and slow ascends, you need to have air in your tank. Therefore always check for air consumption.

3) If you want to go scuba diving photography then, first be confident that you are a skillful diver. Understand buoyancy, scuba breathing, and refine your waterman ship before you try to become an expert in underwater photography.

4) If you want to go for a boat dive, then arrive early to the dive boat, find a good spot, and set up your scuba dive gear before the boat even leaves the dock. Keep mask, fins, and other loose scuba diving equipment in a mesh bag under your seat so that you can easily reach them and they remain unharmed. Always wear sun block. Drink plenty of water and while planning your dive entry know how to get back on board after the dive.

5) Avoid too much lead as part of your dive kit because it hurt your ability to dive comfortably and safely. Too much lead will require that you put a lot of air in your BCD, adding unnecessary weigh as you swim. However, less lead will have you constantly working to stay down. Therefore wear just enough scuba diving weight.
