Tips and hints

 

Check your equipment thoroughly before you dive.

 

Find out about the exact position of the diving site, as well as its depth, currents and wind conditions. Postpone your dive if the conditions are too challenging in relation to your level of training and experience, or find a different, more suitable place to dive. Never underestimate the current!

 

Mark your location, stay out of sailing channels and keep a good distance from ferries.

Never dive if you have been drinking alcohol or if you have a hangover.

 

Snorkelling

  • Always dive with a partner. Take turns to dive down so that you can keep an eye on each other.
  • Always make sure that you have free access to the surface.
  • Check your surroundings before entering the water. Are there anglers, nets or sailing boats nearby?
  • Spit in your mask before putting it on – this will prevent it misting up.
  • Remember to equalise the pressure in your ears when descending. Close your nostrils and blow carefully into your nose. Stop if you cannot equalise the pressure!
  • Get out of the water before as soon as you start to feel cold.
