In this video I’m going to show you some
scuba diving underwater hand signals Bear in mind of course there will be
some differences depending on which training agency you were certified by
and variations from country to country Okay let’s get down to the real stuff.
Hand signals begin on the surface when you’re telling your buddy that you’re
okay and you’re descending. Once you’re on the bottom or your desired dive depth
ask if your buddy is okay and if they give you the okay back it’s safe to head off. Making sure that your hand signals are clearly seen and understood is
important so bear that in mind if you’re signaling with black gloves against the
black wetsuit. Clear indication of which direction you’re going to be heading is
important to. Here the information being conveyed is a heading of one to zero Indicating a directional heading with
numbers greater than five using a single hand can be done by displaying your
fingers horizontally here the heading is one seven zero Keeping track of how much
remaining air your buddy has is also important so two fingers tapped on an
open palm asks the question. Once your buddy has had a look at their air pressure
gauge there are several ways they can reply. Here the okay signal with three
fingers played tells me he has over 130 bar of air. The flat palm over pointed
fingers indicates T for a ton which is 100 followed by two fingers which is a
total of 120 bar. This is a hundred and ten bar This is 100 bar. This is seventy
bar which is low on air. This is fifty bar Here’s a couple of critical questions
you might be asked. Hey you where’s you dive buddy The boat? Do you know where it
is? It’s crucial to always let your buddy know if something is wrong so if asked
are you okay you can reply in several ways I’m okay Something is wrong with my ears Something is wrong with my mask Something is wrong, I’m feeling cold Something is wrong with my BCD Whoever’s been designated dive leader is usually
the one giving out instructions. Here I’m being told you and the guy next to you
buddy up okay? Now I’m being told stop, wait here, I’m going up to take a look
around and see where we are The dive leader can also give out other various
instructions like turn around we’re heading home Hey you the dive’ s aborted. Everybody surface. You follow behind me Ascend and level off at 5 metres for three minutes, Okay? Descend and level off at 2-0 metres okay? Always let your buddies know about
potentially dangerous marine creatures Hey you there’s danger and it’s right

usually applied when whales are migrating along the coast Stay watching until the end of this video for some outtakes including a very special attack
