Tips for diving for the first time
Find the right instructor
A bad diving instructor means in many cases a bad first experience. Do not hesitate to ask the instructor for credentials to make sure he is a professional.
Choose a good day for your first time
The success of a day of diving depends a lot on the weather conditions. Stay tuned for the weather forecast and do not hesitate to change the date if the day does not look good.
Ask what you can think of
Do not be afraid to ask any question, no matter how stupid you think it is. The instructor is there to solve all your doubts whatever they may be.
Learn to breathe
When you dive for the first time is to hold your breath reflexive instinct will lead you to hold your breath. But remember that you have a tank full of oxygen on your back, so breathe normally.
Stay tuned for your feelings
Although obviously, you are not yet a professional, you can know if something is wrong or not. For example, maybe you do not see well with the diving glasses and do not know if that is normal. When in doubt, as we said in the previous advice, ask. Maybe you’re doing something wrong without knowing it.
You look but you do not touch
Surely to be your first time diving you will be tempted to touch everything, fish and other animals included. Not all the animals you see will be harmless. Follow the rules of the instructor.
Ascend with caution
After enjoying your submarine ride do not quickly return to the surface or you could damage your lungs. As a rule, you do not have to climb more than 15 meters per minute. It is also necessary to stop for about 3 minutes when you are approximately 4 meters from the surface.
Give it a second chance
Not everything in life is perfect from the beginning. If your first time diving is not something to shoot, do not resign yourself. Wait a while and try again, maybe the second time will be much better and you will end up hooking.
