A successful trip also means preparing for bad situations
Let's get back to our tips for preparing your dive trip properly. When you've chosen this kind of trip, often abroad, each person has sacrificed time and money, made a commitment and part of their dreams are depending on it... So expectations are high ! Experience has shown me that any parts of the trip that were poorly anticipated or understood by the traveller could cause bad feelings or slight frustration. Let's take a look at what you should know to avoid this.
Let's respect the underwater environment
First of all, in terms of encounters, each destination promises its share of common or rare species, sharks, rays, turtles, dolphins, tuna, swordfish. However, the sea is a wild environment and it should remain so.
Although, to divers' delight, these promises generally come good, happily they cannot be guaranteed. An encounter happens in an open, natural environment, with a wild species that might not be where it is expected! Making sure otherwise would mean forcing the encounter and therefore no longer respecting the subject being observed or withdrawing the wild aspect of the animal, which happens in some places or can be seen in captivity. Each travelling diver should be aware and know how to appreciate each fleeting moment of a wild encounter for what it is, that it can never be guaranteed to maintain its beauty and its power.
