4 Tips to Discover Scuba Diving
If you’ve never breathed underwater and have fears or bear, it seems to be impossible to scuba dive. That is wrong! No worries, the best is you do not think about that. Or even better, you do not think too much about it. The best advice for a novice diver is: relax! The more scared you are, the more tense you are, the harder is breathing.
Fact is, if you follow a few simple rules, it’s not so bad to begin with diving. Whether you are afraid or not, keep these 4 points in mind in preparation for your discover scuba dive or scuba diving course and you will be on the right track towards enjoying a beautiful part of this World; the underwater part.
1. You are not alone
We have all at some time started! This nasty situation, nervous feeling that you have when you discover scuba diving for the very first time is quite normal. We are not born to breathe underwater. Once you have the hang of it, diving is the most peaceful and most wonderful experience of your life and vacation in Phuket Thailand. All divers start at some point and struggle first, but it is absolutely worth it! Just the sound of your own breathing; no smartphone, IPhone, Tablet, WhatsApp, no one talks, no traffic … just you, the sea and the fish.
2. Ask Questions
Knowledge is power. It just feels better when you know what to expect. Our scuba instructor will tell you everything you need to know. This provides you with more confidence… There are no wrong questions. If you have a question, please ask until you get an satisfying answer. This applies also to the introduction of discover scuba diving. This is your chance to resolve the last uncertainties, so that you can enjoy your diving experience at maximum.
This is especially true if you are a little scared before the first dive. If you do not feel well, tell your instructor. If you are particularly nervous, inform your instructor. Your instructor learned at some day scuba diving too and he knows how you can feel, but he can not read your mind. Tell him how you feel and you will see that he reacts absolutely positive. This may means he stays closer to you, it may means he ask you more often “are you OK?” but in general, your instructor is an approachable person and it helps him to support you for your first discover scuba dive.
3. Find the right instructor and diving school
You can see from the points above how important it is to have a good Instructor. Usually you’ll find a good instructor at a professional diving school. There are many dive centers and it is not always easy to find the right one that you are comfortable with. Therefore contact a diving school and ask questions. Read reviews on Trip Advisor and on Scubatribe. (Scubatribe is particularly good because it focuses on reviews of real divers that have actually visited and dived with the Dive Center reviewed. Tripadvisor has been known to be less reliable on this with Dive Centers purchasing or faking reviews). There are many dive shops that offers courses with the 2 largest diver training organizations. Whether you’ll be trained by SSI or PADI standards you will be a well-trained, safe and responsible diver. Aloha Diving and many other dive schools offer SSI and PADI courses. It’s your choice. Ask us about the differences.
4. Keep on breathing and never hold your breath
The most important rule is: Keep on breathing and never hold your breath. This basic rule you master quickly and that is very important! If you’re tense and anxious, breathing alone does not help. Therefore, the fourth point should rather be: “Always continue to breathe and relax.” That is the right order. If you can manage to relax, you’ll go diving for relaxation and do not need to recover after diving. You will very soon enjoy every moment of your discover scuba dive and the hardest thing will no longer be getting in the water; it will be coming out of the water!
