    Survivor guide: Scuba diving


    Scuba diving is a popular sport enjoyed both in England and abroad. One of the most popular times to enjoy this sport is whilst on holiday. However, like all sports there are potential risks involved and travel accidents can happen whilst taking part in this pastime. Here is our survival guide.

    Always be alert to avoid a travel accident

    This one may seem like an obvious tip but when you are scuba diving you always need to be alert and focussed. Losing concentration for even a minute can cause you to sustain a nasty travel injury especially if you are deep down.

    Dive with someone else

    Avoid going scuba diving alone. If you dive with someone else there is always someone to look out for you and if one of you gets into bother the other one can help. To avoid a travel accident always dive with a buddy especially if you are not very experienced.

    If in doubt, ask for help to avoid a travel accident

    If you are not very experienced or need a refresher on the basics of scuba diving, always ask for help from an instructor or an experienced diver. If you are ever in doubt, always ask for help as it could be the difference between you being safe and you having a travel accident.

    Make sure you have the right equipment

    This is vital when scuba diving and before setting off you must always test the equipment. When you are hundreds of metres down in the sea the last thing you want is for the breathing apparatus to fail. If you are worried it is not fully working always get it checked out before going out as you could end up in a nasty travel accident otherwise.
