For female divers, bikinis and one-piece swimsuits are ideal because they hug the body tightly and don’t shift as the diver pulls on her wetsuit. The simpler the swimsuit, the better.
Is it safe to dive in Bikini Atoll?
It is now safe to dive Bikini Atoll and the Marshall Islands, and the diving is world class – including one of the best wrecks in the world – the USS Saratoga. The country is also home to an enormous shark sanctuary covering 768,547 square miles.
Do you need to shave before scuba diving?
You can dive with a beard or other facial hair. But it is imperative that you take the proper care of it before and after you go on your dive. Issues such as water leaking in, discomfort, burning sensations on the skin and affecting the facial hair growth can arise if the necessary steps are not taken.
Can you scuba dive with braids?
A braided ponytail works well, but a french braid is even better. In either case, leave hair braided until after the dive. Rinse hair with fresh water before undoing the braid, and gently detangle.
