Things to Avoid During Scuba Diving! The Do-No-Hurt Ways


Where these concentrated on general, ordinary conduct, this article will center around things that you can do (or rather, ought not do) amid a dive.

Harass Marine Life

This one should be an easy decision, but then we do see very frequently recordings uploaded to YouTube demonstrating individuals (non-divers and divers alike) engaging themselves by (coincidentally) harassing marine wildlife.

So just to repeat: don't get creatures, don't hold them for photograph operations, don't go for rides on dolphins or turtles, and don't compel puffer fish to blow up (it can be lethal to them).

It is inappropriate behavior, you're setting a horrendous case for different diverse, and numerous organizations will really renounce your permit, at any rate in case you're a professional diver, for example, an educator or divemaster, as we revealed here on that SSI did as of late.

Pick Up Coral

This one ought to be an easy decision, yet despite everything it happens.

Coral develops gradually, and a snapped-off bit of a couple of inches can take numerous years to regrow. To exacerbate the situation, a few sorts of coral are in danger of kicking the bucket if even little piece are severed, slaughtering off a noteworthy piece of the reef they're on.

Quickly, we'd end up with seriously lessened coral development on reefs the world over. Yet, there's something else entirely to this than just not severing living coral.

Picking up dead corals off the seabed isn't greatly improved. These severed pieces are likewise part of the sea's environment, so evacuating them additionally expels assets that different parts in that biological system relies upon.

What's more, I know you only pick up a solitary piece. In any case, so does the following diver. What's more, the one after that. Furthermore, the one after that.

Land On Stuff

For some divers, and specifically beginner ones, keeping up unbiased lightness is precarious.

Specifically when you need to get a photograph of something, and need to keep totally still. So every now and then divers will "land" on the base to rest or balance out themselves. This is fine in case you're landing on an unmistakable sandy base, yet not all that on the off chance that you land on corals, anemone or other touchy plant and creature life.

Before you set down, take a gander at where you'll be landing and make the appraisal of whether it would be OK or not.

Envision scuba diving without a wetsuit. In the event that you'd approve of putting your uncovered skin on whatever surface you're looking at, it's most likely OK to do as such in a wetsuit.


Spotting marine life, specifically the expansive, pelagic ones, similar to sharks, is a genuine group pleaser. But since creatures more often than not don't take after timetables, sightings are never ensured.

For a significant number of us divers, that is a piece of the appeal; you never comprehend what you will see (perhaps nothing). Be that as it may, in some cases, out of anxiety maybe, a few divers and dive aides will endeavor to stack the chances to support them by chumming the water to pull in specific species, generally shark, or they'll expedite chum a dive to move creatures nearer. What's more, this is dependably an awful thought.

Chumming implies creatures begin partner divers with nourishment, which will make them less cautious when moving toward them, and a few people look to make hurt creatures.

Likewise, sustaining specifically sharks can cause nourishing crazes, where people can get bit. Excessively numerous shark chomps far and wide are really caused by people chumming, at the end of the day, the shark gets faulted.

Take Souvenirs

There is no preferred keepsake over a memory, or a photograph. Picking up stuff from the sea, regardless of whether it be shells, rocks, bits of coral, or antiques from wrecks.

Without a doubt, on the off chance that you run over something that is clearly waste, carrying it up with you and tossing it out is cool, outstanding even, however whatever else ought to be left in the sea. A few things are a piece of the neighborhood biological system, others fill in as sanctuary for marine wildlife, and still others are a piece of the dive understanding, and on the off chance that you take it with you, you're basically burglarizing future divers of that experience.
