10. Special operational conditions

10.4 Underwater currents


The dive plan should consider the presence of currents and the limitations they impose on the diver's operational ability. While other parameters must also be taken into account, tide meters may provide accurate information on the tidal current at different depths and can be used to assess the diving conditions.
