Diving is one of the most exciting adventures anyone can experience.
There’s nothing like exploring the great unknown under the deep blue sea, seeing marine life at its most picturesque. It’s no wonder more and more are getting into it.
However, it doesn’t come without rules and etiquette. The ocean is in constant danger and it’s our job to remain knowledgeable and responsible divers throughout the journey.
Want to stay on the good side of everyone? According to Scuba Diver Life, here are things you don’t want to hear during a dive trip.
- “Anyone have a backup computer I can borrow? Mine keeps flashing ‘Deco Violation’?”
- “When we get down there, can you show me which coral is the best to take home with me?”
- “These fins aren’t marked left or right…”
- “Which of these do I breathe with?”
- “Where can I throw up?”
- “I caught this turtle, do you have something to put it in?”
- “I’m very experienced, I’ve been on at least a dozen dives now.”
- “There aren’t any sharks in this ocean, right?”
Whether you are a novice or experienced diver, it pays to know what you’re getting into. If you are looking to do this for a long time, it’s best to learn each time. Take classes. Ask advice from experts and do your own research. Add more knowledge as you go along.
Diving is best experienced when you know what you’re doing. So invest time on learning as much as you can. You don’t want to end up being that person in the room, don’t you?
