What can and can not be done in diving?

What can and can not be done in diving? The practice of diving, like any other that is carried out underwater, requires a series of care and rules to comply with.

These steps are vital to carry out the activity with complete peace of mind and avoid having any surprises during the activity. Let’s see next in this article what we can do and what we should not do in diving.

Security rules

Within the rules to take into account when preparing a dive, as part of the good judgment to have, it is necessary to plan how the excursion will be carried out and anticipate any problems that may arise in advance.

Have adequate equipment for diving, as well as perform maintenance of the equipment and a previous review before the dive.

Carry out the activity in company, keep in mind that your colleagues are the ones who can help you in case of an emergency. In the case of making a tour with Aquaworld Our professionals will take care of the essential maintenance for the scuba equipment.

Check your air supply frequently during the dive, and respect the depth limits in which you have been regularly certified and trained.

Respect for the environment, how to avoid contact with aquatic beings and the seabed. Enjoy of theaquatic lifeand avoid destruction. Collaborate with the care of the environment by collecting the garbage that you see at the bottom of the seabed.

Remember that it is essential to avoid retaining air in the lungs as you go up. Especially if you dive deeper than 10 meters, remember to follow the recommended ascent rate of 9 meters per minute. If necessary, make a 3-minute stop at a depth of 5 meters. Under no circumstances try to get out of the water quickly and without making any stops.

Recreational diving

When diving, it is necessary to control buoyancy. This will prevent you from becoming excessively tired. If you don’t control your buoyancy you could hit yourself with the corals.

Also, in terms of the boat with which you go to the place, it is recommended to control the use of the anchor to avoid damaging the aquatic environment.

Although we said above that it is necessary to dive in company, try not to dive in extremely large groups. You will dive more relaxed with a small group of people and your concentration will also be higher.

In the same way, you have to be respectful underwater with the rest of the divers, as well as educate fellow divers so that they respect the rules.

Aquatic life

Seeks to learn from underwater life and not harm it. Knowing in advance the fauna that you will find will allow you to know how to act in front of the inhabitants of that space.

You have to respect the aquatic flora and fauna, since you can get many surprises. For example, many jellyfish are shaped like coral, so it is important that you can dive without touching any part of the seabed.


Do not forget that at Aquaworld we have courses that will allow you to learn the fundamentals of diving, such as our course Discovery Scuba, and if you are interested in obtaining a open water certification, you will be able to take classes with us and thus obtain an internationally recognized certification.
