What are the 3Rs?
3Rs is an in-water education and site orientation program for divers and snorkelers. Participants are briefed on the interaction of surf, swell, and tides on underwater rocks and reefs, and then enter the water and tour popular diver sites with local lifeguards. 3Rs is a great way for newer divers to learn more about the ocean and for experienced divers to explore new dive sites.

Participants learn how to:

1.Identify underwater rocks and reefs by observing water movement and surf

2.Take advantage of the ocean?s natural wave motion

3.Spot safe places to enter and exit

4.Avoid places hazardous to divers and snorkelers

5.Encounter rip and long shore currents

6.Use tides to plan dives

Who can attend?
The 3Rs is free and open to the public. Snorkelers welcome! SCUBA Certification is not required, but swimming experience is recommended. Participants must sign a liability waiver as part of registration. Participants aged 17 or less must have the waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. For beginner and experienced divers.

What to bring.
Bring a mask, fins, and snorkel. A full wetsuit and gloves are strongly recommended for warmth and protection from scrapes. Spring suits are OK. Weights are discouraged unless you are a strong swimmer or your wetsuit is extremely buoyant. Scuba gear (regulator, BC, tank, etc.) is NOT used during the 3Rs.

If you have not been diving or snorkeling recently, please check your gear before you arrive.

When are the 3Rs?
Registration will be at 8:00am. Mandatory briefing starts at 8:15am, enter the water 8:30 am.

Sponsored by the San Diego Council of Divers, Session Host: Rainbow Dive Club, and Lifeguard Adventures.
