Liveaboard diving: Getting out

Climbing out of the water at the dive ladders
Climbing out of the water at the dive ladders

On our Red Sea trip we either returned to the back of our liveaboard and climbed up the ladders to exit the water, or we were fetched by the crew on Zodiacs and brought back that way.

Filmed from under our liveaboard, here’s Veronica preparing to climb out of the water on one of the two fold-down ladders attached to the dive deck. When the ship is in motion the ladders are out of the water. As soon as your kit breaks the surface, helping hands are ready to take the weight of your cylinder and take your fins off when they hit the deck.

Also, look how clean the water is!
