Divers have to communicate underwater. Normal conversation isn't possible, so they’ve created a sign system. Here you can see some of the sings you've or will learn during the course.

OKNo.1 – OK sign. It can be used to show everything OK with the diver showing it. Can be also used to ask other diver if everything is OK.

ProblemNo.2 – Hand motion which tells that diver has some kind of problem. After that sign diver points at part of a body or equipment where the problem is.

WynurzenieNo.3 – Going up. Immediate need to ascend to the surface or shallower water.

ZanurzenieNo.4 – Descending.  Shows intention to descent.

Przystanek BezpieczenstwaNo.5 – Mostly used in Red Sea – it tells to diver that he/she has to make a 3-minute safety stop at 5 meter depth. Right hand with five fingers spread tells the right depth. Left hand with three fingers spread upside down shows the time needed on depth – three fingers – three minutes.

Konczy sie powietrzeNo.6 – Hand motion along neck shows that diver has no air left.

OK z odleglosciNo.7 –It’s an OK sign being used on the surface to be seen from greater distance. Commonly used after boat entry or in the drift entry..

Ile powietrzaNo.8 -  It’s a question to your partner how much air does he have. Answer for that question can be signs on photos number 9, 10 and 11 telling about quantity of air.

100BARNo.9 – Quantity of air left - 100 bars left. Can be used in conjunction with other quantity signs to show greater quantities.

50BARNo.10 – Quantity of air left - 50 bars left. Can be used in conjunction with other quantity signs to show greater quantities.

10BARNo.11 – Quantity of air left - 100 bars left. Can be used in conjunction with other quantity signs to show greater quantities. Every next finger tells about next 10 bars. For example, 4 upright fingers – 40 bars left. 

PradNo.12 – Fist rests on an open hand – tells to diver about current, turned into proper direction under the water shows the direction where the current comes from.

Swoje marzenia o nurkowaniu zrealizowałem w 2007 roku, od tego czasu każda wolną chwilę spędzam pod wodą. Koledzy z pracy powiedzieli że cały sprzęt nurkowy mam zawsze przy sobie :-) bo wychodzę z założenia że ocieplenie klimatu może zaskoczyć w każdej chwili.
