Have indeed a proper training. Just like a child needs proper education to know and practice matters well, in scuba diving there are no shortcuts too. Since humans lived in land and not in underwater, it is expected that being underwater will not be as comfortable as walking in the streets. Getting the right training from a reliable trainer is a must. Also, proper training means an open water certification, if you are interested to have one then do some training.

Do not dive alone, dive with somebody. Doing solo scuba diving is not really a brilliant idea. It is advisable to dive with a group or with a partner. Better choose your best buddy so that in case something bad happens, you are sure that your partner will not go away and just leave you behind dying. You will keep an eye on your partner and your partner will exactly do the same.

It is a must for a diver to be physically fit. This is important because you simply cannot predict what can happen underwater, it is therefore crucial that you are in a good shape. Just at least you know how to swim. Better do some physical examination before committing yourself to scuba diving.

Perform a double check on everything. Be wise enough to check your diving equipments twice or even thrice to be sure. This should be done all the time whether you are just renting the diving equipments or you yourself own it. Jumping and diving into the underwater without even testing or checking the diving equipments is a clear sign of a lousy wanna be diver! “Do plan your dive and do dive your plan” - This is the phrase which is often used in the training. You should equip yourself with the knowledge of the following: the maximum depth you will dive into, the amount of the bottom time you will have and lastly how much air you as the diver will start to ascend with. Checking your air supply is a must too.
