Have A Good Diving Tip? Tell Us About It

Undercurrent readers are experienced divers with lots of good information. So why not share the knowledge?

Reader Gino Dubay (Pigeon Forge, TN) offers two tips of his own. “To make it actually easy to don a wetsuit, place a ziplock-bag on each foot and hand before you slide them into the sleeve or leg. They will then slide through like *** through a goose.”

To prevent the inside of your underwater housing lens from fogging up, Dubay recommends saving the small absorbent packs that come shipped with most electronic gadgets and put one or two in the housing before a dive.

Kimberly Forbragd (Beaverton, OR) separately offered her own gear tip: Carefully inspect each piece of gear after flying. Bags are often inspected by the TSA who can often handle gear too roughly or in the wrong way. “I recently flooded two expensive rechargeable flashlight batteries on the first dive after flying. The lights were tightly sealed when I packed them, yet they were very loose before I tightened them underwater but by then it was too late.”

So what’s your tip? Send them to us via e-mail at and we’ll share them with other readers in upcoming issues.
