Plan your Dive and dive site

Choosing a the suitable dive site is important to ensure a satisfying scuba experience and memorable underwater moments. And there are a couple of consideration to ensure the best experience. During a vacation in most cases you dive with a local dive center who know the dive sites by heart and can provide you with the necessary information. But also dive site reviews like PADI travel and blogs are an important source for us to plan any dive.

  • What can you generally expect, like depth, currents, visibility, underwater scenery.
  • What kind of  marine life, caves or wrecks to explore?
  • Conditions of the day. Visibility, current can chance and influence the dive drastically
  • What are your expectation, what do you like to explore?
  • Do you like to penetrate a wreck or focus the dive on macro photography
  • Can the dive center support you in your plans?
  • What is reputation of the dive center and in case how experienced is the dive guide
  • Do you know your buddy and their level of experience and expectations in the dive
  • Does the dive meet your level of experiences? Comfortable with the dive and ready to enjoy?
