View Poll Results: What is the most dives you have done in a single day
When I was DMing and going through all my training, it was very common to average about 5 a day, almost every day. Most of them were shorter dives, at shallower depths. Usually taking a Discover Scuba Class out on thier Open water, Scuba refreshers, Tours, or my own training dives. So usually 40 ft or less. But Id try and sneak in one good 80+ft dive per day.
It was just below freezing and snow was falling steadily. As we stepped toward that portal separating a cold and dreary world from the tranquility and wonder of another dimension teeming with life and color a passer-by shook his head and muttered "crazy". Poor fool. If he only knew. (Airsix)
Interesting discussion. I'm wondering if there are any guidelines concerning maximum hours underwater in a single day. I'm heading for a dive vacation, and planning on 2-3 dives per day, all at less than 60 ft. Probably most will be 40ft. or less. I'm assuming that with long surface intervals, and doing what my conservative Cobra computer says, I should be okay even if I did more than that. Maybe I'll ask Dr. Deco.
