Boat diving! It s such a great thing to do. It lets you reach otherwise unavailable sites. You can cruise around various ports, bays, and islands using little or no effort at all. What this also means, though, is that you have to be ready for easy problems such as faulty O-rings, cracked masks, or leaky regulators.
To have the best chance of getting your boat a good clean I would advise you to invest in scuba gear that suits the type of water you will be diving in. If you are planning on going into the Southern Ocean then you should look at gear designed for ocean currents. If you are planning on going further afield, then it might be worth considering an electronic gear scuba diving regulator. The variety of gear available makes sure you will be ready for any situation.
The size, shape, and construction of the boats diving equipment are the key to getting it right. The most common types of gear include a mask, snorkel, fins, weights, chest pack, and other accessories. These items vary in price from as little as $300 for a simple mask to thousands for a fully outfitted gear. A decent quality boat diving equipment store should have all of the gear you need including scuba tanks and regulators at a good price. Be careful when looking around for your gear, though. Many shops will make a huge profit by selling re-conditioned gear that is really meant to be used on scuba dive sites and not on boats.
The third thing you will need to prepare for when you dive is how to breathe in the water. Breathing in air underwater can be a different matter than breathing in air above water. Breathing in fresh air requires less air than breathing from a tube. However, because you are submerged, you will need a lot more air than normal to stay afloat. This is why it is important to only bring along a few hours’ worth of supplies and take along a few friends who are comfortable diving to a nearby shallow reef site.
If you are going to be diving with others, there are some things that you will need to know before you get started. For one, only two people can dive at one time. This means you should plan your excursion properly and know the location that you will be diving in to ensure safety. Another thing, you should always divers with a trained professional in hand who can quickly assess any problems and give you any help or direction you might need. As a minimum, this person should be a certified scuba diver and have at least ten years experience.
Boat divers don’t need to worry about anything when they are under the surface as long as they follow safe diving practices and keep their eyes on the horizon at all times. They also will need to familiarize themselves with scuba equipment and scuba gear before going so that they will be ready to dive when they are ready. Just as with other types of scuba diving, a proper and safe briefing will ensure you are safe and able to get your desired results.
