A good recommendation for staying safe during a dive is to have a dive compass available at all times. It will provide you with accurate bearing readings for navigating underwater, which will make the dive much more enjoyable and of course, safer.
A dive compass is actually one of the few ways to orient yourself in the water. It can be easy to get lost while diving. Distractions happen and it's easy to get sucked into the beauty of the scenery or wildlife, causing you to veer off course. Having a dive compass and knowing how to use it is fundamental safety in diving practice.
