A dive log is used by divers to record the details of their dives. The log may either be in a book, software, or web based. The log serves purposes both related to safety and personal records. Information in a log may contain such things as date, time and location, the profile of the dive, equipment used, air usage, above and below water conditions, including temperature, current, wind and waves, general comments, verification of buddy instructor or supervisor.
In case of a diving accident, it can provide valuable data regarding diver’s previous experience, as well as the other factors that might have led to the accident itself.
Recreational divers are generally advised to keep a logbook as a record, while professional divers may be legally obliged to maintain a logbook which is up to date and complete in its records. The professional diver’s logbook is a legal document and may be important for getting employment. The required content and formatting of the professional diver’s logbook is generally specified by the registration authority, but may also be specified by an industry association such as the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA).
Dive logbooks are given to Open Water Students as default course material. After exhausting all the pages, divers will have to purchase a new logbook or create their own.
At Divertainment, we provide both options i.e. you can purchase a dive logbook from our store or you can download the pdf version of our custom designed logbook and print it out. If you would like to have a custom version with your details, do write to us firstname.lastname@example.org
