A Guide to Good-Sense Diving

 

 

 

We divers are a fortunate lot. We can enjoy firsthand a part of the environment that most non-divers experience only vicariously — through television, movie or computer screens. We each have our own special motivations for diving, but one thing is common: we love our recreation.

 

Each year new and experienced divers alike from all over the world make millions of enjoyable scuba dives; and for the vast majority of the time, we make these dives without incident or injury. This is because as certified divers, we take our fun seriously: we have taken the time to learn safety guidelines to become conscientious and responsible divers, so we can keep on diving. And we talk about our dives, learning from our own — and others’ — experiences.

 

New divers can learn quite a few "good-sense" tips from other divers. This helps to prevent injuries and mishaps, and it illustrates the camaraderie of teamwork so widespread among divers.

 

Not all good-sense tips are scuba safety rules or guidelines, but they generally relate to basic principles every diver should know. DAN’s staff members have put together a collection of their good-sense tips based on their insights in scuba diving over their many collective years of experience.

 

S-A-F-E D-I-V-E

 

If you’ve been diving for a while, or if you’ve just learned how to dive, there’s a lot to learn — and remember — about diving. You can start by remembering that each dive should be a SAFE DIVE, directly related to:

 

    Self-reliance

    Attitude

    Fitness

    Experience

    Diving skills

    Involvement

    Variety

    Equipment
