4 Tips for Beginner Maui Scuba Diving

Be Medically-Fit

Before you arrive on Maui, check with your doctor to make sure you are medically-fit for scuba diving. If you are not very physically active, try to prepare yourself by going for brisk walks or light jogs. Try to start this routine at least two weeks before your beginner scuba diving lesson. Then you will develop extra stamina and be able to focus on learning to scuba dive.

Learn to Relax in the Water

Maui scuba diving for beginners means learning on the surface and underwater. After your dive briefing, you will be in the ocean the whole time. You will breathe from your regulator on the surface before making a descent into shallow water to continue the basic scuba diving lessons. This extra time will help you relax in the water and enjoy the moment.

Ask Questions About Your Scuba Equipment

Your professional and attentive PADI instructor from Banyan Tree Divers Maui will clearly explain to you all aspects of beginner scuba diving. You will learn how to use your scuba equipment properly, and most importantly, what not to do. But it is not always easy to remember all of this new information. So, ask your instructor questions and learn how to use your equipment before entering the ocean.

Be Mindful of Your Breathing

The universal most crucial rule in scuba diving is never to hold your breath. But it’s common for beginner divers to forget about exhaling. That is a problem because the air in your lungs determines your positioning in the water. If you hold your breath, you will float up, sometimes back to the surface. Be mindful of your breathing and tell yourself to make bubbles. Maui scuba diving for beginners is best when you dive at the same depth as the rest of your group.
