Do you know that the world’s nature is not only beautiful on the surface, but the underwater beauty is also very extraordinary? Some of you may already be familiar with scuba diving or even have tried Discover Scuba Diving (DSD). For those who have never tried it, maybe this sport sounds scary and extreme. However, if you’ve tried, it’s guaranteed to be addicted. According to the expert, living in a country with seas but not diving is just as rich as having a Lamborghini car but that person can’t drive it. Well this time, the expert will share some scuba lessons tips for those who are interested in enjoying this sport.
Plan your scuba diving training and choose the right school
1. In order to get a license, it usually takes three days or more to practice, starting with the theory, then practicing in the pool, then getting tested for diving in the sea. You must really take the time to take this course. There are several diving centers that open weekend training programs, so you don’t have to skip school or work to get an Open Water Certificate.
2. Safety must be the main consideration in choosing a diving school. Don’t be lazy to read online reviews from previous students. A good diving school will always limit the number of students per instructor for security reasons. A good instructor must also be able to communicate clearly and provide instructions that can be understood by his students.
3. Before taking the course, it’s a good idea to practice yoga and swimming. Yoga exercises can help you become more focused, relax, and also regulate breathing. While swimming exercises will make you more comfortable and also control your movements in the water.
4. Then choose the right scuba diving agency for you. There are two large, internationally recognized scuba diving agencies, PADI and SSI. Each has advantages and disadvantages, so choose the one that best suits you. If the expert himself first took the license with PADI, but again it depends on the reference of each person.
Furthermore, there are some safety tips you must know before you start scuba diving:
1. Avoid carrying a camera even if you are allowed. For beginners, using a camera can disrupt your concentration, and can unconsciously disrupt your buoyancy stability in the water.
2. Don’t forget to take anti seasickness, if you are susceptible to seasickness.
3. Don’t be shy to ask your guide or instructor, even though your question sounds stupid. You better ask any questions to avoid confusion in the sea.
