This dive is characterized by it’s very special conditions: currents, deepness and location, so it’s a spot with uncertain conditions where we should be extremely cautious. It is also one of the best dives in the planet. This dive will be planned by Balkysub with the following rules:
The diver that wants to dive at “Bajo de Fuera” has to do a previous Marine Reserve of Fishing Interest adaptation dive. A mandatory requirement to dive in protected sea areas, according to a motion on the 27th of March 2017 by the Fishing General Office, by which the responsible diving in Marine Reservations standards are approved.
This dive or “test” will be conducted by one of our Divemasters and Instructors. In case of being positive, Balkysub will give the diver a certificate to be able to dive in any spanish Marine Reserve valid for 2 years. During the next year it will be implemented in all spanish Marine Reserves.
The “Adaptation Dive” also known as “test” will evaluate:
1.- PRESSURE CHECK ON THE SURFACE
2.- DROP AND ASCENT IN BUOYANCY
3.- STATIC, NAVIGATION AND APPROACH
4.- LETTING GO OF THE DECO BOUY
5.- EMPTYING THE MASK AND BUOYANCY
6.- TAKING OFF THE MASK AND BUOYANCY
7.- TAKING OFF THE REGULATOR AND BUOYANCY
8.- TESTING THE ALTERNATIVE AIR SOURCE (OCTOPUS) AND BUOYANCY
9.- SHARING AIR AND BUOYANCY
This dive or “test” must be certified for all divers, instructors included.
Balkysub will maximize the safety measures to dive in this specific spot. We will organize the dive with 2 guides and make groups according to the level of experience and certifications of the divers, as we always do with all our dives.
