SCUBA DIVING SAFETY TIPS
Ultra Dive has been in the
scuba diving charter business since 1995
and we have
a flawless safety record. Our first
the health and safety of all our customers. We are aware that one
main goal of recreational scuba diving is for
you to have a fun experience.
We try not to inhibit in achieving this goal with a barrage of
regulations but instead simply require that
all divers follow our rules which are based on many
years of Texas offshore diving experience. We also ask that you please
diving safety procedures applicable to the dive
site conditions, dive within your comfort zone
and have a good time!
All divers are expected to act responsibly and follow
three primary rules when diving with Ultra Dive. They are:
1. STAY WITH YOUR BUDDY.
Staying with your buddy applies from the
time you both enter the water to when you both ascend and get back to the
boat. This is known as the first rule of diving because it is the most
important. Please stay with your buddy at all times
while in the water. If you arrive at the boat without a buddy, one or a
buddy group will be assigned to you before you ever enter the water.
2. STAY WITHIN THE RIG STRUCTURE WHEN DIVING AN OIL PLATFORM.
At times a diver can drift away form
the platform and will attempt to swim back while submerged using a compass
barring, please do not do this. Should you lose sight of the structure,
immediately make a controlled assent and either get back to the dive boat or
to the rig while on the surface. Keep in mind that there could be
other boaters in these areas which is just another incentive to stay within
the oil platform for obvious safety reasons.
require that all divers have their own personal inflatable "safety sausage".
In the event that you should drift away from the boat or dive
site, the use of this locating device will make you much more visible to us
and or other boaters that may be in the area. The average cost for one of
these items is only $25.00 and can be purchased at your local dive shop.
3. NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
ALLOWED ON BOARD.
Consumption of any alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited for the
full duration of these diving charters. "Full duration" does include
surface intervals and the ride back to the
