MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Christmas season is fast approaching…

 

Dive season has well and truly started so ask yourself

  • Are you ready?
  • More importantly is your gear ready?

 

SAFETY CHECK

Dive with a buddy – stay together

Check your dive gear – are you weighted correctly

Equipment check – computer battery, regulators working, recently serviced

  •           Dive flag
  •           Dive check
  •           Dive buddy – stay together or at least in visual sight
  •           Buoyancy – are you weighted correctly – do the basic check
  •           Dive Signal

If you are diving off a boat – make sure the skipper or person on board understands not to leave the dive site until you are safely back on the boat

Buoyancy check

  • Once you are in the water
  • Do a simple buoyancy check before you dive
  • Jump in the water
  • Put mask, regulator on
  • If you are weighted correctly you face should be just below the surface.
  • If above the surface – add more weight
  • If below the surface – reduce the weight
