Tips for Quarantined Divers

Tips for Quarantined Divers

Diver, diver I’m a resc…. Quarantine diver? Hold on that isn’t right. Pinching myself 3 times more to check if it’s not just a bad dream.

Let me introduce myself. I am Kevin, a Dutch guy stuck at home like everyone else in Spain and many other countries in the world. I’m a quarantined dive master at Blue Water Diving!? This sound strange isn’t!

Now us divers, this *censored*! We, as social, water fanatics are asked to stay home. So what to do if you are a quarantined diver? I’ve got 3 tips to keep yourself entertained!


Tip 1!

Have you got a camera? You know, the fancy action-cams you take with you on a dive? You must have got some amazing videos and photos! Open your iMovie or any other program you like and start editing! It's probably (as sad as it sounds) the closest we'll get to diving in this period!


Tip 2!

Watch tv, movies or series about diving! Here are my recommendations for our Netflix veterans: Black fish, Mission blue, Chasing coral, and my favourite: Last breath. Get the popcorn and prepare for some serious sofa diving!


Tip 3!

Increase your knowledge! Practise your buddy check. Surf on the web for info about that one fish you liked so much! And most important stay cool. Get a bucket of water, get into your wetsuit. Close your eyes… and.. let the illusion begin!!


I wish all my diver friends and family a lot of strength for this period!

Keeping Amadores Beach Clean

As part of being a Padi Diving Centre each year its the dive centres responsibility to plan, promote and organise a beach clean up, with the Padi Project Aware Team. In 2018 Blue Water Diving adopted Amadores Beach as our designated area. Amadores is a man made beach which is nestled inbetween Puerto Mogan and Puerto Rico. Amadres beach was built in 2002 with crushed coral sand imported from the Carribean. The bay has grown in marine life and plants grow from the rocks, which has formed it as a nursery for barracuda, angel sharks, sea wrasse, cuttlefish, squid, damzels, sardines…. Adult stingrays, eagle rays and angel sharks can be found here.

You can help our ocean

The Five Biggest Impacts Facing Our Oceans, plus Five Easy Ways You Can Make A Difference.‍ Don’t worry, this is not another doom & gloom article about how we’re trashing the planet, killing our oceans, and are inevitably going to end up in a post-apocalyptic world filled with trash (just like Wall-E). However, given that two in every three breaths we take come from the ocean, and just how generally amazing the ocean is, it would be useful for all of us to be armed with some knowledge about what to do in the face of all these problems. So, in hope of inspiring some positive actions, here are the five biggest things impacting the future of our ocean, plus five easy things you can do right now to be part of the solution.
