1. Get qualified by a certified agency: choose BSAC or PADI.
2. A pre-dive medical examination is a good idea: you don't need to be an athlete to scuba dive but a basic level of fitness is required.
3. Never dive by yourself. Find a 'dive buddy'.
4. Always follow the rules set out by your qualified diving instructor.
5. Check rental equipment carefully. Make sure everything fits and functions properly.
6. Watch out for weather reports before you dive: lightning and heavy rain can make diving dangerous.
7. The sun penetrates the sea even during relatively deep dives. Protect your skin with a high protection factor sunscreen
8 Protect against dehydration: drink plenty of water before and after diving.
9 Learn the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and emergency treatments if you are diving in hot weather.
10 Once certified, try easy, shallow water dives first. You may need more training before you embark on specialist activities like cave and shipwreck diving.
