What to Expect When Diving in Beom Island
I revisited Beom-Seom (Tiger Island) during Chusoek holiday (Thanksgiving). As I weared 4.75kg weight for 3 mm wet-suit when I joined a tour to Saipan last July, I thought 6kg for 5mm wet-suit would be okay but it turned out I needed more weight. Mr KIM, the guide diver from the Good Diver pull my fin down a little bit, then I could sink eventually. For the 2nd dive, I put 1kg more to my weight belt. As it was right after a Typoon, the visibility was not great though, I was happy to enjoy many kinds of fish (자리돔 떼, 다섯동가리 무리, 초소형 가오리) 등등 As jumping into the ocean, I lightly bumped my left heel against a rock hidden underwater. I felt an impact which was not serious and painless. Next time, I will make it sure to jump aiming further. During a safety stop, I realised my buoyancy got gradually higher due to the buoyancy of the air tank on my back got higher as I consume the air. So, I noticed I have to decompress my BCD constantly during the safety stop. Good lesson I got today.
