Scuba Diving Skills Video: Giant-Stride Entry

Giant-Stride Entry

AKA The fastest way from the boat to the water.

The giant stride is a tried and true method for scuba divers entering from a large boat. This entry method is as straight forward as it gets — literally. After getting into your dive gear you simply take a large step, straight off the boat while holding your mask and regulator in place. After a moment of hang time you’re in the water and ready to explore.

Check out the video above to see the skill in action. Keep in mind: we are not instructors! This is meant to be an example of what you will learn, not a study tool.
