The diving instructor will give thorough instructions on the boat.

Basic instructions:

  1. Do not hold your breath at any time while diving
  2. Breath slowly and deeply
  3. If water gets into the breathing apparatus, just blow into it and the water will come out
  4. While decending, increased pressure may cause your ears to hurt. You can relieve this pressure by holding your nose, closing your mouth and sending air to the ears
  5. If you are having trouble clearing your ears and feel pain, please point to your ears and the instructor will bring you up a little bit to relieve the pressure. After the pain goes away, the instructor will try to take you down again, and you can try to clear your ears once more

When you first get into the water, you will grab onto the side of the boad and practice breathing with the breathing apparatus. The instructor will then take you down to the bottom of the ocean (about 4 to 5 meters). Please do not kick your feet. Just relax and enjoy the ride down.
