Let`s examine these simple steps, so that you can prepare and dream of the adventure to come. First of all, make all the needed reservations, book the hotel, flight tickets and any transfer or car hire, and also make the necessary scuba diving reservations.

If you are thinking about going to some of the most popular diving resorts like Egypt, Hawaii, UAE or somewhere else, remember to pack your diving certificate. If you do not have any, you can often take a diving course within the resort. Mind that this course takes time and some days, so remembering your certificate will make for a more enjoyable holiday.

Diving is great fun but needs plenty of time to get the best from your holiday, so its always better to book as long a trip as you dare, thus you can then rest, bathe, get a good tan as well as have super fun with planned scuba diving. There are a great number of popular diving resorts. Select one and start planning your voyage. In addition to training certificate, you had better remember the other crucial things you may need. Think about these in advance and do not forget at home to pack all documentation, your passport, flight tickets, medical insurance, plus an emergency piece of "plastic" just in case your wallet or purse gets lost. This will help you greatly and you can escape any misunderstandings and any unpleasant situations during your trip, with all the necessary planning in place.

As we have already suggested If you do not have a diving certificate, you are free to address a diving service in the hotel or resort. Just ask the administration and they can provide you with the all information and instructors.

When you are a more serious adventurer you will have all your own equipment and the check list expands to cover things like a suitable scuba costume or wetsuit, breathing apparatus, flippers, a knife and camera if you want to take photos under water. However, do not worry; all of these are available for rent at the diving centre. If you have in the past been diving but feel that you have forgotten some skills, then you can simply take a refresher course. If you want to raise your level of diving abilities, it is also possible to do whilst you are at many of the resorts, all levels at your disposal. Any diving course you take will allow you to venture further and enjoy scuba diving and have fun exploring the beautiful marine world.

But, please, follow do remember to follow all the rules prescribed whether you are beginner or an advanced diver. We wish you a nice scuba vacation and exciting adventure.
