The Hydration Shack

The Art of  Drinking & Diving

The importance of  being well-hydrated while diving

White Sands Dive Boats offer water and fresh fruit to its divers to increase safety.
Dehydration is the number one cause for Decompression Illness in SCUBA Divers.
 Divers need to be hydrated.
Our divers often spend time at the dive shop during surface intervals and this is an excellent time to hydrate, so we have our little ‘Hydration Shack’.
The Hydration Shack stocks Gatorade, fruit and fruit juices along with Crystal Water. Diver or not, it’s the tropics and we all spend time in the Caribbean sun. Cheers to your hydration!
 For more information about dehydration and diving from the Divers Alert Network go to Diving & Hydration

Belize Weather for October

Belize Weather for October
My favorite Month, few tourist and lots of cool, calm weather.
Northerly breezes bring heavier rainfall, and October temperatures in Belize cool down to a monthly average of 79°F (26°C). Daytime highs of around 84°F (29°C) and lows of 75°F (24°C) are common, as are occasional “Northerners”, two or three day storms often centered around the Maya Mountains.

Even in winter the temperature in Belize rarely falls below 60°F (16°C), while throughout summer the mercury sits at around 86°F (30°C). Humidity is also fairly consistent at around 85 percent.
With temperatures so consistent year round, Belize has two, rather than four seasons– the wet and the dry.
Belize’s dry season, falling between February and May, has significantly lower rainfall than the rest of the year, and when rain does come it is usually in mild, short bursts.
