PREP FOR THE UNEXPECTED
PART OF THE THRILL of diving is encountering the unexpected; you never know what is going to emerge out of the blue, or what critter you might discover hiding in the muck.
But there are certain surprises we would rather do without underwater; running out of air, losing our buddy, becoming entangled, taking a hit of DCS are just some of situations that we can do our best to avoid with a little bit of planning and a good dose of common sense.
Make sure you are prepared for the unexpected with these basic guidelines. Dive if you’re not feeling confident and happy with the plan. Trust your intuition and remember that smart divers know when to say no Deviate from your dive plan. No whale shark at 50 metres is worth it if it means putting your life, or that of your buddy, in danger
