Travel

There are numerous dive sites throughout the world which offer very different conditions. This page summarizes some of the information that past Scuba Club members have contributed based on their dive travel experiences.


Shoreline on the Caribbean side of Cozumel

Many places that divers frequently travel to have beautiful coral reefs which have taken many centuries to grow into such amazing formations. These reefs are very delicate and demand the utmost amount of respect from divers. Touching these reefs in any way will kill the coral. Just one diver who does not have good skills can easily wipe out hundreds of years worth of coral growth during one dive.

A diver with poor bouyancy control not only endangers themselves (some tropical sites have wall dives with essentially no bottom) but also ends up acting as the equivalent of a wrecking ball on the reef, angering other divers in the process.

Practice makes perfect in scuba diving as in many other activities. Easy access to great shore diving at a wide array of dive sites in New England offer local divers the rare opportunity to be at the top of their form when on a dive trip. If you're not an experienced diver, or haven't been diving in a while, then make the effort to brush up on your skills - especially bouyancy control - before traveling. Of course, one of the best ways to do this is to go on dives with the Scuba Club!
