Students’ safety is our main concern and no instrument will ever be able to free us from the weight (and the honor!) of this huge responsibility. SHARKNET however gives us some extra peace of mind:
- If a student has some troubles while underwater (and of course we are not there), he only needs to release SHARKNET: as the device reaches the surface, it will notify the personnel on the boat or ashore that we deem to be best suited to provide assistance.
- If a customer loses the rest of the group, gets back to the surface and doesn’t find us, he will be able to double tap SHARKNET, for it to communicate his position.
- If, instead, we surface first and don’t find somebody, SHARKNET allows us to look for our lost customer (if already at the surface) or notifies us as soon as he resurfaces.
In addition to the above safety uses, SHARKNET helps us also in the unhappy case of an incident: by recording the activities of ours and of the rest of the group, the device makes it easier for us to defend from undeserved charges.
A big THANK YOU! to all diving instructors: recreational diving flourishes thanks to your devotion!!
