Divers keep track of their diving experience by logging their dives. Each dive is usually provided with the depth, duration of the dive, water temperature, name of the dive site and other information. Often a specially designed logbook is used and each dive should be signed by the dive buddy and stamped by the dive center.
Purpose of the logbook
In the event of a dive accident, the logbook may contain valuable data about the diver’s experience in the past and other factors that may have led to the accident itself. In addition, logging the dives serves as a proof of experience for further courses.
In today’s digital world, most divers use dive computers. This increases the digital storage of all diving information – the logbook in the paper version is becoming increasingly rare.
Digital alternatives to the logbook come in various forms – depending on the manufacturer with different functions.
