DAN’s Guide to Returning to Diving Safely
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, August 10, 2021 @ 09:30 PM (EST)

If you’re like us, you’ve probably got one question constantly going through your mind: When can I get back in the water? As the vaccine rollout continues apace, you might well be drawing up a short list of destinations. But you might also be wondering what extra homework you should be doing before taking the plunge.

If you haven’t already, this is a great time to pay a visit to the Divers Alert Network (DAN) website for up-to-date information on returning to diving safely. DAN’s guide covers six crucial steps—Inactivity, Health Status, Fitness, Equipment, Diving Skills, and Travel Plans—addressing questions like: How does inactivity affect my return to diving? Will my health affect my ability to dive? How do I get into shape for diving? How do I renew my equipment?

DAN summarizes the guide nicely in their one-page PDF and their video below. Head to the DAN website for more detailed information.
