No sir!

In the event that your dive is not everything you had hoped for, there are ways you can find value and enjoyment in every dive.

Every Dive Is Valuable

Scuba in Pretoria with Scuba Scene introduces you to a whole new world.  They recommend these three tips to make every dive valuable.  

  1. Reframe Your Experience: Firstly, you can reframe the dive and celebrate the small details.  You may be hoping to see exciting sea creatures on your dive: whales, sharks, dolphins, whale sharks, turtles, schools of fish or mantas.  Sometimes, however, you will see none of those.  Sometimes you will see nothing at all.  Until you really look for the details.  Even if it is a beautiful branch of coral or the way the sun streams through the water.
  1. Take Care: Secondly, if the dive is not remarkable, you can concentrate on taking care of the environment.  Pick up any plastic or debris that you find.  It is harmful to marine life and unsightly.  Each piece you pick up makes a difference.  
  1. Practice Makes Perfect: Thirdly, when the scenery is a little humdrum, use the opportunity to practice your skills. See how efficiently you can move; practice your buoyancy; or focus on your air consumption.  Every dive can be a learning experience.
