Reasons why divers get lost include:

True or False: Using too much weight or having a poor physical condition might make it impossible to swim back to the exit point, even with slight waves or little current, increasing the possibility of getting lost.

True or False: Wearing bright pieces of equipment (for example yellow, green or orange) will increase the contrast between you and the surface, making it easier to be spotted from a distance.

True or False: A DSMB is brightly coloured and sticks out of the water, making it a good tool to have with you in a lost diver situation, but does not guarantee to be found.
