    Cliff bars on boats; bananas and/or Cliff bars when shore diving. I do not take bananas on boats because they are easily crushed but If the boat crew provides fruit, I like that.

    I always enjoy fresh fruit segments. A bit lighter on the stomach than energy bars, but obviously a bit bulkier and susceptible to temperature extremes. That said, potato chips of various brands seem to be favored by many of the folks I dove with in the past.

    One time diving in Cozumel the lunch snacks on the boat included bananas. Not sure if it was because they were locally grown and tree ripened or a different variety than I’m used to , but they were amazingly good. Several of the divers agreed they were the best they had ever tasted.

    Sadly I’ve dove with them several times and only once had those amazing bananas.

    Can of Vienna sausage. Peanut butter rolled up in a soft tortilla. Same thing every dive.

    chunks of watermelon or orange slices. I try to avoid the junk food most boats provide because (besides being junk food) it makes me feel sick underwater.

    The burp is from swallowing air bubbles at depth in your saliva. They expand as you surface, causing the satisfying burp.

    Yes, nothing quite like a can of processed, seasoned, ground pork lips and anuses to make a good snack. I eat 1/2 a turkey sandwich and some unsalted nuts with lots of water.
