    A question? Why would you only bring a cave diving certification to an open ocean dive location when you have a Advanced open water certification. There is only one reason " recently NSS-CDS cave certified". You were bragging and you know it. I have never used my NSS-CDS cert anywhere but the springs. You can't really blame someone not from a cave diving area from not recognizing an NSS-CDS card.

    Charlie,

    I was going to say the same thing. Until DanM starts paying a dive operations insurance, or owns one, maybe he should shut the hell up! A dive operator can refuse anyone at anytime. Seems like Sunset House (although by the way he described where it was at, it was probably more Eden Rock) was clairvoyant on what type of diver he was.

    Apparently you missed something during the "best" "far superior" training you recieved. Either that or you just can't fix stupid.

    If you were a new diver talking about doing something like that, I could overlook it thinking you may not have been trained properly or just didn't understand the dangers or know better yet.

    But for some touting their advanced training, to do this type of diving is just plain silly. I seriously hope you dont approach cave diving with this type of attitude and disregard for safety.

    In addition to what others have already posted, it's impossible to dive to 200 feet without going into deco.
