Discover the keys to safe diving!
Scuba diving is an exciting activity that offers the opportunity to explore the fascinating underwater world, but it is essential to be well trained and follow certain guidelines to enjoy an experience full of fun, adrenaline and above all safely.
It is important first of all to take a training course at a recognised school that offers certified and internationally recognised courses, such as PADI. This certification provides the necessary knowledge about diving techniques, safety and rescue, and helps to prevent accidents and dangerous situations.
Once trained, with adequate equipment and in good condition, we will have a wetsuit, fins, mask, regulator, buoyancy waistcoat and a computer that indicates the bottom and decompression times. The dives should be carried out in recognised dive centres that have the bottles and equipment in optimum conditions. Regular servicing and maintenance of all equipment is crucial to ensure that it is in top condition.
Dive planning is another crucial aspect of ensuring safety. It is recommended to research and select suitable dive sites, taking into account factors such as water quality, visibility and currents.
In addition, it is vital to follow established decompression guidelines and time limits. Diving involves changes in body pressure, and it is essential to respect decompression times to avoid decompression sickness. In addition, it is advisable to follow the time limits set for each dive and try not to exceed them.
Doing the health questionnaire is also very important to know our physical shape and to make sure we know if we have the optimal conditions for diving.
In short, diving can be a wonderful experience if you follow the right safety guidelines.
