Skills Lab: Underwater Communication


When you are underwater, talking is not an option and your dive buddy may not understand what your frantic flailing and waving means. That’s why it helps to have a set method of communication that everyone is familiar with and understands.

Because safety is a major concern while diving, lines of communication must be clear so that everyone can help ensure that everyone else has a safe and fun dive.

Some topics this Skills Lab will focus on include:

  • Importance of pre-dive planning

  • Review of directional and safety hand signals

  • Critter hand signals

  • Dive slates and notebooks
