Before any dive, you should evaluate the conditions and decide if they are suitable. This is a critical aspect of safe and enjoyable diving.
As long as you choose a dive site and conditions that are within your training and comfort level, you will have a great time. Anytime you plan to dive at a new site, it is important to get an area orientation from someone who knows the site. The nearest dive store will be the best source of information for you.
Environmental considerations when evaluating the dive include temperature, visibility, tides/currents, bottom composition, marine life, and any sensitive/dangerous areas.
