Getting the chance to go diving is an experience unlike any other. It can be a rewarding and enriching life experience to interact with curious and colorful marine life. Diving is relatively easy, and just requires a little training before you get started. Here are some of the steps to get started.
Are You Physically Able?
Today, almost anyone can learn how to dive. You simply need to be basically fit and be comfortable in the water to dive. You’ll be given a medical questionnaire to ensure diving does not put you at risk. There are only a few medical conditions which might be contraindicated for diving.
Choose Your Course
It’s important to know how to use your gear and knowing how to check and use it properly can minimize risks. You’ll need to enroll in scuba classes to learn how to enjoy the underwater world safely. There are different types of courses available, from beginners who just want to learn enough to get in and swim around for awhile to fully certified divers. Choose what level you desire.
Buy/Rent Diving Gear
Of course scuba diving is a sport dependent on equipment. A diver will need a full set of gear before getting started. Most scuba classes include the rental of all necessary gear in the price of the class. Actually, most divers never own a full set of gear except for the personal items like a fins and mask.
Time to Practice
Part of the instruction you will receive will be practicing with an instructor. You’ll learn how to clear water from the mask, and how to operate the regulator. A certified instructor will help you with the basics and get you started.
