It is easy to become an ecological diver. You need only to put into practice simple techniques concerning your body, the diving equipment, and the diving environment. Divers have a great responsibility in regard to our planet; oceans are fundamental to the equilibrium of life on this earth.


  • Floatability is essential. Do not strike the bottom of the ocean floor. Do not flap your fins against the ground or the rocks.
  • The equipment should not hang. Attach all hoses to the BC to avoid entangling or hitting the corals.
  • Do not remove anything from the sea. It takes a gorgonia a year to grow; coral takes hundreds of years to form. All materials recycle themselves in their environment. Do not touch or move anything.
  • Avoid feeding the fish.
  • Al tirar el ancla evita su garreo continuo, busca boyas de fondeo para amarrar la embarcación.
  • When throwing the anchor, avoid repeated clawing; look for buoys to tie your boat.
