You don’t have to settle for watching the deep sea on TV. Now you may live this wonderful first-person experience.
Diving is one of the most captivating activities that can be done on the Blue Planet. But how is it possible to get the most out of it? Dr. John Reuben, a marine biologist, who has more than 500 hours of underwater expeditions around the globe, gives us the answers we need.
1 Don’t let your diving mask fog up
If the mask is new, rub the inside with toothpaste to reduce fogging. If it’s not new, spit inside to improve underwater vision.
2 Do not bother your hair
If you have long hair, tie it before the dive. The hair can become entangled in the mask and it is possible that water may enter there.
3 Do not use sunscreen
If you are going to dive do not put on sunscreen, it can be toxic and damage corals. Wear a vest and a hood to protect the skin from the sun.
- Clean your ears
Go to a doctor to clean your ears with a syringe. This will facilitate the descent. Equalizing pressure is one of the biggest problems related to diving. The risk of an eardrum perforation must be avoided at all costs.
