There is definitely no better place than Cancun or the Riviera Maya to have your first diving tour. It is a unique experience in which you can come into contact with marine life.
However, if you have never done it before, it is normal to have many doubts and fears. So if you are wondering what will happen the first time during your diving tour in Cancun, here we help you answer that question:
You will learn little by little
Don’t worry, you won’t have to dive deep sea in the first class you take. The learning will be gradual.
The first time you dive into the water it will be in a pool or in a shallow bay, in both cases you will be able to stand up without problems. But long before that happens, they will first introduce you to the equipment to use and the techniques needed to dive.
Learn to breathe with a scuba regulator
Learn to breathe It will be one of the first skills you must acquire to learn to dive.
Although the sensation of breathing with a scuba regulator underwater is quite similar to what we normally have on the surface, the mere fact that you will have to do it underwater makes it feel a bit strange.
Once you get used to the idea, you can do it without any difficulty.
Sounds under water
Despite what is said that while diving you will be in a quiet and calm environment, the reality is that water conducts sound much better than air.
In fact, one of the first things you will notice when you dive is the sound of your breathing. It’s a matter of getting used to it, then you won’t even notice it.
Lightness of the body
This is one of the best sensations of diving, you will feel that your body hardly weighs and you can easily move in any direction.
Even if you feel lighter you will not be able to move very fast, since the density of the water will restrict your movements and you will tire easily, the best are slow and controlled movements.
Your peripheral vision may be impaired, limiting your view due to the diving mask. Don’t despair, like everything else, it will take you some time to get used to this new sensation, but when you do it will be the most normal thing in the world.Another effect that will happen underwater is that you will see things closer than they really are.
How to clean the mask during the diving tour?
One skill that you should learn is to clean the diving mask when, for some reason, water gets into it, it is not very difficult to do, you will only need to practice to achieve it. The first thing to do is to relax, since this way you can be clear about the steps to follow: Begin by holding the mask firmly against your forehead.
Sight down to prevent water from going into your nose Take a deep breath with the scuba regulator.
Exhale slowly but forcefully, through the nose.
Tilt your head up, and continue exhaling (the exhalation should last at least 5 seconds). To prevent any residual water from going into your nose, just before you finish exhaling, look down. If after doing so you still have water In the mask you can repeat the process after a few seconds of rest, although having the theoretical part is not the same as putting it into practice, knowing all this can help you feel a little more confident and make it easier for you to function during your first diving experience.
