Are you a shore-diving fan?

Do you have any tips on getting through big waves near shore on a sandy beach? I dive on Southern California beaches often and the surge can be huge. Once I lost my fins and mask and felt like I was being thrown about. Looking for advice so I can feel more steady on my upcoming shore dive.

excellent points i prefer shore diving for the reason you mentioned. of all the resorts i’ve been to the only resorts that had shore diving was roatan in honduras. i understand bonaire is mostly shore diving but of the people i spoke to mentioned a lot of lugging your tanks around.
the only issue i have with shore diving are the slippery rocks. i was diving the liberty wreck in bali and the entry was challenging. there were a number of people diving the wreck and it was free of charge. i said to my dive guide if they charged a couple of dollars they could build a concrete entry to about 4ft into the water to make it easier.

Shore diving in Bonaire is not that hard. You just load however many cylinders you need into your pick up along with your dive kit, and then head off to whatever dive site you fancy. Once there you set up your rig and walk into the sea – simple. Some of the entry points are a little rough and ready over broken coral and rock, but manageable. Others are off sand, others you jump off the rock – Oil Slick Leap. When you are done you just drop off the empty cylinders at the dive centre.

Depends what you want. A northern safari including Ras Mohammed is a good all-rounder. You will hit the aforementioned Ras Mohammed Marine Park, the wreck dives SS Thistlegorm and the wrecks of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas, maybe the Rosalie Moller, as well as some other nice reef systems. For more chance of sharks and some potentially ripping currents, head for The Brothers and Daedalous – a good route is often referred to as ‘Simply the Best’ and includes Brothers, Daedalous and Elphinstone.

my first dives were shore dives( I was poor). I think its great for people who can’t handle boats.

Boat dives are more fun and give you acces to dive sites further away, but costs you a lot of money and valuable time comparing to dive time.

There are some great shore dives as well, like the wreck park in Barbados can be done from the shore.

My two open water discover dives were from the shore. Getting the fins off and on takes some getting used to but otherwise it was easy peasy.

Shore diving is the only guaranteed way to avoid Affluent Divers.
