7 reasons why you should dive

By | Dive Courses, Diving Knowledge, Uncategorized | No Comments

Why do I need to dive? Good question. DIVE LIFE we do not want to convince you of anything, but we warn, diving is one of the most incredible experiences that exist. Today we are going to give you some reasons why we think you should go scuba diving. Let’s go there!

  1. Explore a world that many will never see: if 70% of the earth is covered in water, if your challenge and goal is to see the world and travel, yes or yes you will need to dive, otherwise you will see less 30% of reality. Your vacation will never be the same.
  1. The closest to experiencing weightlessness: We know that going to the moon is almost impossible nowadays, but diving undoubtedly allows you to feel the sensation of zero gravity, as if you were an astronaut navigating in space. But if you really want to have that wonderful experience, you can do it under the sea, a place where you can see the true sensation of flying.
  2. You will see unimaginable creatures: at the precise moment in which you immerse yourself, you will access a fascinating universe full of biodiversity, animals you have never dreamed of, brilliant corals and invertebrate creatures full of life. Each dive will be different, and you never ever really know what you are going to find.
  3. You will make new friends: this activity is a very social sport that will allow you to meet people from other cultures with whom you can share the same love for scuba diving, exchange moments and experiences. You will find people with the same tastes and concerns. And it is that diving strengthens relationships with others and fosters camaraderie and social integration.
  1. You exercise body and mind: if you have already seen that your mind and your senses relax, and the stress disappears, the body also gets in shape when you dive. In addition to improving coordination, space orientation and psychomotor skills. But not only that, your muscles are also toned and strengthened when diving.
  2. You will feel better about yourself: underwater the worries are diluted. The stress suddenly melts away and your senses focus only on enjoying and experiencing sensations. And not only that, you will feel better about yourself, it will improve your self-esteem and confidence.
  3. You will appreciate nature even more: if you were aware of environmental problems before, now you will be even more so. When you dive, you feel the need to protect the sea like never before, with each dive you will love more the sea and the marine ecosystem above all else. until next time!

how to correctly choose my diving suit

how to correctly choose my diving suit

This will be the first of the doubts that we will encounter, and it is certainly one of the most important choices that we must make. Different thicknesses, materials, shapes … which one suits us?
The first thing we must be clear about is the usefulness of the suit. As you may well know, its main function is none other than to maintain the diver’s body temperature, limiting as much as possible the heat loss that occurs when entering a much colder environment, such as sea water.
In addition and as a second level function, the isothermal suit can free us from possible scratches, blows or bites of various animals.

In the market we will find three fundamental types of suits:

Dry: used in very low temperatures. It prevents the entry of water into it through a valve with which it injects air into the space between the diver and the suit itself, in addition to having tight adjustments in the ankles, wrists and neck to prevent the exit of air and the water inlet.
Wet: it is the most used. A certain amount of water (scarce) penetrates into it but does not allow constant renewal of it, so the body easily reaches its temperature without significant thermal deterioration.
These suits are made of neoprene, with different thicknesses (the thicker, the more it will protect from the cold), the most common thickness being from 5 to 7 mm. This material makes the suit have some buoyancy, which should be taken into account when monitoring the ballast used if we change our suit.
There are also finer suits (1 to 3 mm.) For warmer waters, as well as vests that can be worn under the suit for cooler waters.

Semi-dry: equipped with a waterproof zipper. They protect more than the wet ones, without reaching the extreme of the dry ones.
As you may well know, the suits are generally made of neoprene, a material that we can find with different finishes:

SMOOTH: neoprene treated so that the layer that will be in contact with the skin is smooth and adheres well to the body, facilitating its placement. They are the most fragile at breakage. This type of finish is very common to find on the wrist and ankle cuffs, in order to minimize the flow of water.
LINED: the neoprene has a lining that favors its placement. This lining provides great resistance to tearing. The lining can be nylon or towel, the latter being especially comfortable to put on because it has a mini curl that slides very easily on the skin.
TITANIUM: used in sheets, which are placed between the neoprene and the lining (exterior or interior) in order to minimize the cooling of the air from the neoprene microbubbles. In this way the internal heat is maintained for a longer time.

Diving is one of the most spectacular recreational activities you can do during your vacations or free time. The world under the sea is impressive and full of magic. And if we talk about territory, the Mexican sea is 2 times larger than the mainland of the country. This alone can give you an idea of the large number of opportunities that you can find when diving in Mexico.

But among all of them there are 3 places that stand out thanks to their spectacular landscapes and marine life, they are: Cabo Pulmo, Veracruz and Cozumel.

If snorkeling is not enough for you anymore, follow these expert tips to dive deeper….

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.

  1. 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.

Diving in Mexico

By | Conservation, Dive Sites, Marine Life, Playa del Carmen, Trip Reports, Uncategorized | No Comments

Mexico is an exceptional country. Due to its history and culture, but also thanks to its geographical position between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Mexico has beautiful rainforests, deep Cenotes and an exceptional density of underwater fauna. Few know it, but southeastern Mexico is the second largest barrier reef in the world. The coast of Mexico offers the opportunity to dive in some of the best dive sites in the world. Mexico has many exceptional dive sites.

Where to dive in Mexico?

There are two main diving areas in Mexico: The Caribbean and especially Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cozumel and the famous Cancun with its unique underwater museum, MUSA.
Baja California or the Lower Pacific Ocean side known as the world’s largest aquarium said Jacques Cousteau.

Where to dive in Mexico?

The Yucatan Peninsula
Located in southeastern Mexico, this region is incredibly rich. There is an abundant rainforest and magnificent limestone formations, as well as cenotes, large natural wells carved into the rock. These cavities that contain hundreds of translucent freshwater wells can be explored by diving. Divers who have had the opportunity to explore that part of the planet will tell you that it is simply a magical experience. Prepare to see landscapes from another world, incredible lighting effects and even underwater rivers under the sea. The most famous cenote is Dos Ojos. Its cave system is the largest in the world. Other cenotes are also very popular like “The Pit”, Angelita and Chac Mol. The Yucatan region not only offers cave diving, but also offers the opportunity to do a great dive in the ocean, including the second largest barrier reef in the world.

Diving in Playa del Carmen
This small fishing village has become an important seaside resort. A cargo port for the neighboring island of Cozumel, Playa del Carmen has more than fifteen magnificent diving points that adapt to both beginner divers and experienced divers. Underwater photographers will also discover many photographic subjects with a beautiful palette of coral fish, sea turtles, and during good seasons also bulldog sharks and whale sharks. Do not miss the dive sites of Punta Venado, Los Arcos and the wreck of Mama Viña.

If you have a valid certification, we will take you to a depth of 85 feet (26 meters) and dive through one of the most impressive coral reef walls in the world.

Imagine the thrill of diving in the vertiginous vertical wall full of wonderful formations of colorful reefs, marine life and diverse fish. Try to visualize the magic of the place that awaits you while you are descending towards the reefs.

NOTHING CAN PREPARE YOU FOR THE AWESOME VIEW OF THE WALLS OF SANTA ROSA AND SAN FRANCISCO ARRECIFES.
Remember to keep calm and breathe because surprise will take your breath away. Cozumel is undoubtedly one of the best places in the world to dive and with Aquaworld we will take you to several first class dive sites.

4 EXAMPLES OF REEFS TO EXPERIENCE EXCELLENT DIVES IN COZUMEL
Lovers of marine life and diving, know that Cozume Island has a special touch, you must visit its seabed and live a diving experience in Cozumel.

The island of Cozumel is located just in front of Playa del Carmen and they belong to the Great Western Atlantic Reef Belt, it is also known as the Great Mayan Reef, its coral forms are the most important in the world and it is the second one after the Great Barrier of Australian Coral.

Diving in Cozumel is the first on the list of many diving experts, thanks to the good structure and communication that the reef naturally has, in fact it was one of Jacques Cousteau’s favorites.

If you are in Playa del Carmen or Cancun you can reach the island of Cozumel by taking a ferry or using the air taxi services that leave from the airport.

PARADISE
If you already stepped on cozumeleño soil let us tell you that El Paraíso is divided into two zones; the South and the North. In South Paradise you will find three reefs located along the coast and its depth is not greater than 14 meters, meanwhile in North Paradise it is made up of two reefs and its depth is a little greater it has a total of up to 17 meters, in this The expansion of marine life has been sought through the sinking of shipwrecks.

PERFECT HORSESHOE TO EXPERIENCE DIVING IN COZUMEL
The horseshoe belongs to the Palancar complex, it is one of the reefs with very clear waters and they are perfect for snorkeling and diving in Cozumel. The vision is incredible since without diving you can appreciate the beautiful coral heads and already submerged the discovery of the reef is even better. In the horseshoe there is a predominant curve of large formations and an extraordinary color and you can dive to a depth of up to 30 meters, this place is ideal for beginners who wish to dive in Cozumel.

CHANKANAAB
This is one of the most famous reefs in Cozumel, here there are small coral masses that are called balls, they have coral heads between one and five meters wide and about three meters high. These coral spheres offer a show that complements perfection with marine life and the colors are indescribable.

In Chankanaab, you will find lightning rods, brunettes and lobsters. It is the ideal place for newbies in diving since the maximum depth is between 18 and 21 meters.

TUNICH POINT
To make the dive in Punta Tunich you need to have experience in diving, at this point diving in Cozumel is considered fast since the currents are what mark the passage of the crossing, here there is no great abundance of fish, although formations explode in color.

The species with the greatest presence are groupers, turtles and green brunettes, the depth ranges from 15 to 40 meters.

Diving techniques with Dive Life

Diving techniques with Dive Life
Before you can dive independently there are several diving techniques that you need to master. These basic techniques will be treated in each diving course. It is also advisable to read the page with the techniques of snorkeling. Among others, they describe how to empty the mask and snorkel.

Put on the diving equipment
First of all, it is important to know how to use diving equipment. That means it is necessary to know how to prepare it, put it on and be able to enter the water. It is important that you practice enough to avoid surprises during diving. First, start with putting on the diving suit and ballast belt, then the diving vest (BCD) and the regulator. Before you have to place the regulator to the BCD and diving bottle so you put everything in once. This can be done easily by putting the set of vertical diving, sit in front of that and adjust all the straps. If the diving set is armed correctly, more accessories can be placed. Finish with the mask, snorkel, fins and if you want gloves.

Diving breathing technique
At first, you have to get used to how to breathe through a regulator. During the diving courses pay close attention to this. The advantage of using proper breathing techniques is that it allows the body to use oxygen in compressed air more effectively. In other words, with a correct inhalation, you can stay longer underwater.

It is important to always breathe calmly and never hold your breath. There is always a moment that will use more air. If one of the two partners has no air, it is possible to share it. In this case, your buddy breathes through the replacement nozzle to share the compressed air. In this case, the immersion ends and both partners rise together to the surface of the water.

Diving techniques to get on and off
If you are as a diver lighter than the amount of water displaced, you keep floating and that is called a positive buoyancy. On the other hand, if you are heavier you have negative buoyancy and it will sink. This physical law is used in diving to get on and off (read more about diving physics). Buoyancy can be adjusted with the help of your ballast, lungs, and a BCD.

Ballast is used to go deep as soon as your dive begins. The diving vest is used by filling it with air through the inflator to increase buoyancy and therefore to be neutral. Finally, more air in your lungs means a larger positive buoyancy. Therefore you will rise slightly when inhaling and lower when exhaling. Due to a correct combination of all these techniques, you can stay at the desired height and also in a stable position. In terms of diving, it means that you have a good “neutral buoyancy”. (Read more about buoyancy control).

Equalize ears
The cavities of the body that are full of air like the ear are under a lot of pressure due to the increase in pressure underwater. Therefore it is very important to know how to compensate for this pressure. There are three ways to compensate for the ears. The first is simply to swallow. The most common way is the Valsalva method where the air is blown with a blocked nose and a closed mouth. A third method is to move the lower jaw back and forth., is important to understand biological models are not math models so you must find you is important to understand biological models are not math model so you must find the techniques work better for you, so summarizing dive more and often to feel better and have more fun!

La importancia de los reguladores en el BUCEO

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

En Dive Life tenemos todo tu equipamiento de BUCEO y los reguladores son una parte muy importante para tu disfrute y tu seguridad.

Hoy te vamos a contar porqué son fundamentales estas piezas.

Aquí vamos…

La función del Regulador de buceo no es otra que la de reducir la presión del aire que se encuentra en las botellas, pasándola a la presión ambiental a la que se encuentra el buceador. Por supuesto esta presión ambiental variará en función de la situación de la persona en cada momento.
Resulta más que obvio hablar de la enorme importancia de este elemento dentro del equipo. Por ello conviene conocerlo bien; saber las opciones que se nos ofrecen en el mercado, sus características, mantenimiento…

TIPOS DE REGULADORES

Para empezar comentaremos que actualmente los reguladores se caracterizan por ser ?de demanda?, esto es, dan al buceador la cantidad de aire que éste respira o demanda en cada momento, al contrario de los reguladores antiguos o militares, que entregan el aire de manera constante, lo que sin duda supone un enorme gasto de aire además de un constante burbujeo que dificulta la visión del buceador.
Aunque en principio podemos hablar de dos tipos de reguladores: los bitráquea y nos monotráqueas, lo cierto es que hoy en día el regulador de buceo utilizado por la gran mayoría de los submarinistas es monotráquea, o de dos etapas, si bien en principio la única diferencia destacable entre ambos es que el bitráquea tiene las dos etapas juntas, mientras que el monotráquea las lleva separadas por un latiguillo de baja presión.
Pero sin lugar a dudas el regulador de dos etapas resulta mucho más cómodo de usar gracias a su reducido peso, su poco volumen y sus grandes prestaciones; por lo que es el usado en el buceo deportivo.
Conozcamos la función de cada etapa en estos reguladores:

  • Primera etapa: es la cámara de alta presión. En ella se reduce la alta presión a la que llega el aire procedente de las bombonas, a una presión media.
    Hay dos tipos de primeras etapas: de pistón o de membrana, más tarde hablaremos de ellos.
    En esta primera etapa la válvula es un asiento realizado en un material parecido a la silicona, que hace el contacto necesario para dejar pasar el aire y cortarlo. Aquí es donde se produce el roce con el aire necesario para que no suceda un cambio de presión brusco y para que la temperatura del aire se mantenga constante.
  • Segunda etapa: regula la presión media del aire de la manguera a la presión ambiental, que se establece en función de la profundidad a la que se encuentre el buzo en cada momento.
    El aire llega a esta segunda etapa a través de un latiguillo formado por varias capas de caucho y tela.
    En ella es un pistón el que deja pasar aire a la presión requerida.
    Esta es la parte del regulador que va situada en la boca y es aquí donde se encuentran los mecanismos de seguridad, que pueden ser de dos tipos: ?Tip Valve? o ?Down Stream? (más utilizado este segundo); de tal forma que si en algún momento falla algún componente del regulador, el aire que llegue a más presión de la debida saldrá a modo de flujo continuo directamente de la bigotera.

POSIBLES PROBLEMAS DEL REGULADOR

Como cualquier otro elemento del equipo, en algunas ocasiones (en la mayoría de los casos motivadas por un incorrecto uso o mantenimiento) el regulador podrá presentar alguna avería que sin duda se convertirá en un problema para el buceador en caso de no saber cómo actuar:

  • Entrada de agua: el diseño de los actuales reguladores monotráqueas hacen que resulte prácticamente imposible la entrada de agua en la boquilla del regulador; al contrario de lo que sucedía con los antiguos bitráqueas, donde este incidente resultaba relativamente frecuente.
    A pesar de ello, si notamos que entra agua, deberemos comprobar el estado de la boquilla, puesto que esta entrada vendrá motivada casi con seguridad por una fisura en la misma.
    Si la entrada de agua sucede durante una inmersión, iremos soltando agua poco a poco, evitando el tragarla; para ello nos colocaremos boca arriba y soplaremos sobre ella; también podremos eliminarla si nos inclinamos hacia el lado donde se encuentra la válvula de expulsión, lo cual favorecerá sin duda la expulsión. Otra forma es la de elevar la boquilla por encima del nivel al que se encuentra el regulador, así al producirse un desequilibrio hidrostático el aire fluirá con abundancia por la boquilla.
    En caso de que estos ejercicios nos reduzcan la entrada de agua, sin que sea algo serio, continuaremos la inmersión, pero si la entrada de agua va a más se suspenderá de inmediato.
    Puede haber otros motivos por lo que entre agua en el regulador: mal asentamiento de la válvula de exhaustación, rotura de la membrana de depresión, mal cierre de la brida de sujeción… Conviene que comprobemos todos ellos antes de cualquier inmersión.
  • Falta de aire: puede venir provocada por multitud de causas: rotura o desgaste excesivo de la aguja percutora, desajuste de la palanca (no estará en contacto con la membrana), agarrotamiento de la palanca por exceso de salitre…
    Si esta falta de aire se presenta de forma progresiva, lo más normal es que la causa se encuentre en el atascamiento de los mecanismos de palancas y/o válvulas; lo cual vendrá motivado por un deterioro progresivo de la elasticidad o una mala limpieza. Conviene revisarlo, puesto que en ocasiones no notamos esta falta de aire en inmersiones a poca profundidad pero sí lo haremos al bajar a grandes profundidades, donde puede resultar realmente peligroso.
    Si la falta de aire es repentina y total, será motivado casi con seguridad por una rotura en el muelle de la cámara de alta presión, que dejará obturada la entrada del aire; o bien por el agarrotamiento de la aguja interior de la válvula a su paso por el calibre correspondiente cuando se halla en situación de retroceso.
    Ni que decir tiene que esta es una de las situaciones de mayor peligro en la que nos podemos encontrar sobre todo si estamos a más de 40 m. de profundidad. Algo de lo son conscientes los fabricantes por lo que la gran mayoría de los modelos actuales están construidos de tal manera que, en caso de fallar, no se bloquearía el aire, sino que quedaría un flujo constante.
  • Exceso de aire: la causa principal por la que podemos notar un exceso de aire en el regulador, es por el deterioro de alguna válvula, de las palancas reguladoras o de la propia membrana.
    Si observamos una pérdida de aire parcial, simplemente deberemos aspirar con ciertas precauciones; pero si la pérdida de aire es total, deberemos tener muchas precauciones ya que nos será imposible mantener la boquilla en la boca (ni siquiera deberemos intentarlo).

MANTENIMIENTO DEL REGULADOR

Además de resultar esencial en cualquier inmersión, el regulador es una de las piezas más delicadas del equipo de buceo, por lo que conviene vigilar con esmero su mantenimiento.
La primera regla que debemos cumplir es la de lavarlo adecuadamente y con agua dulce después de cada inmersión. Por supuesto antes de hacerlo colocaremos el tapón de la conexión a la botella para evitar la entrada de agua. Para ello no resulta conveniente aplicar chorro de agua a alta presión.
Cuando estemos seguros de que hemos eliminado cualquier resto de salitre o residuo, lo secaremos para después colgarlo a la sombra en un lugar seco. Lo colocaremos con la segunda etapa hacia abajo, para escurrir cualquier posible resto de agua que haya podido quedar en las mangueras.
Al guardarlo pondremos especial cuidado en que ninguno de los tubos quede doblado de una manera forzada, puesto que eso dañaría sin duda al regulador.
Además de esto, deberemos respetar tres reglas de oro en el uso habitual del regulador:

  • Para su transporte, guárdelo siempre separado del resto del equipo y con sumo cuidado.
  • Nunca coja las botellas por el regulador (ni aún estando en el agua).
  • Nunca deje el regulador expuesto al sol ni a latas temperaturas.

A parte de este mantenimiento que podríamos definir como ?diario?, es preciso que cada regulador pase una serie de inspecciones periódicas más técnicas, necesarias para garantizar un correcto funcionamiento a lo largo de su vida útil y mantener la garantía.
Para un buceador activo que realice una media de más de 15 inmersiones al año, se recomienda una revisión anual. Entre una y otra revisión nunca está de más comprobar que el regulador no remite silbidos o ruidos cuando inhalamos, puesto que si lo hace es un claro síntoma de que necesita reparación. Atención prestaremos también al estado del filtro cónico de entrada de la primera etapa, si está oxidado o tiene residuos debemos enviar cuanto antes el regulador a reparar, puesto que ese filtro es un fiel reflejo del estado de todo el equipo.
En el chequeo anual deberán analizarse los siguientes puntos:

  • Estudio de las posibles fugas o pérdidas: lo que se hará con el regulador presurizado y sumergido en el agua.
  • Desarme e inspección.
  • Limpieza: se limpian las piezas plásticas en solución detergente y las metálicas en cuba de limpieza por ultrasonido.
  • Reemplazo de elementos defectuosos o gastados.
  • Armado.
  • Calibración: se realizarán varias calibraciones para asegurar su correcto funcionamiento.
  • Comprobación.

A menos que tengamos una clara experiencia en este tipo de trabajos, siempre resulta aconsejable ponernos en manos de profesionales.

PRIMERA ETAPA: MEMBRANA O PISTÓN

Tal y como ya hemos indicado, la primera etapa puede trabajar mediante un sistema de membrana o bien de pistón, que podrán ser compensados o no. Y sin lugar a dudas esta será una de las principales cuestiones que se nos plantearán a la hora de adquirir nuestro regulador; elegir ¿pistón o membrana? Encontraremos equipos de los dos tipos sea cual sea el fabricante por el que nos interesemos, por lo que conviene saber las características de uno y otro.
En cuanto a la compensación, cabe decir que hoy en día los reguladores no compensados casi han dejado de fabricarse, quedando relegados como los más bajos de la gama. Ni que decir tiene que el compensado es un mejor sistema, puesto que permite obtener el aire de una forma mucho más suave y con un menor esfuerzo.
A nivel general podemos decir que el sistema de membrana ofrece la posibilidad de variar el taraje de la presión media, con lo que, además de compensar las pequeñas variaciones que puedan existir a causa del uso, también nos permitirá ?sobre? o ?sub? tarar la presión de la cámara de baja respecto a los valores aconsejados por los fabricantes; con lo que conseguiremos adecuar de la mejor manera el equipo a cada una de las inmersiones que realicemos. En su contra hay que señalar que requiere un mayor mantenimiento que la de pistón, puesto que cada ciertas inmersiones será necesario cambiar la membrana o en su caso el muelle que opera contra ella (aproximadamente cada 50 ó 60 inmersiones).
Algo que no deberemos hacer en una primera etapa que funcione con un sistema de pistón, cuyo mantenimiento es prácticamente nulo (siempre y cuando mantengamos una correcta rutina de limpieza y almacenamiento, tal y como antes hemos señalado). Sin embargo no ofrecen posibilidad de taraje ni de variación en los valores de la cámara de media presión, al tiempo que suelen tener mayor desgaste de sus piezas internas, debido fundamentalmente al rozamiento que sufre.
