Some scuba diving centres in Bali go all the way to help you set up your gear. That is totally fine, it is their job. But as a certified scuba diver, you must check your own gear or even set up your own. This is important for you to keep being safe and having everything working within the order.

Remember How To Release Weight

Scuba diving can be dangerous, at times you might need to make an emergency exit. Releasing weight might be needed in those situations. We might forget how to release those weights when panicking. You need to remember how you equip them, is it from the left or right, integrated or not.

Keep Your Mask On

Keep your mask on, both in times of Covid-19 or when diving. If you are not using it, keep it around your neck so it is safe. Putting your mask on the forehead increases the chance for it to be washed away by the wave. You would want to lose a mask right?
