Tips for Safe
Caribbean Scuba Diving

I wanted to share with you a few tips before you venture into the waters. These tips are for the good of those invaluable miracles of nature.

  • Never anchor on corals. Tie up to a mooring buoy or jetty, or anchor carefully in sand or rubble patches.

  • Avoid kicking up the sand. It spoils the visibility for others and damages corals and other reef animals when it settles.

  • Be careful in underwater caverns and caves. Don't spend too long in there and avoid crowding.

  • Follow the sandy areas when swimming across the shallow part of a reef. It is easy to accidentally crush corals and disturb other animals.

  • Don't touch corals or hang of, rest on, or kick them. Corals are living animals and are damaged even by gentle handling.

  • Don't eat turtle. Marine turtles are endangered.

  • Take your litter with you, ad if you see litter, pick it up.
