I’m new to diving and so I have some curiosity type questions?
What is the average number of dives you normally plan out for a single day?

[Choose #2] I prefer to do 3, but I typically choose to do 2 in lieu of risking hypothermia

[Choose #4] If I have all day, I’ll do 4 or 5. If I have other things to do that day, I’ll do 2 in the morning and then head out by noon.

[Choose #2] 2 dives a day is good for me, that leaves plenty of time for hanging out and relaxing :)

[Choose #5] just depends on where I’m diving and for how long, and what else is going on. usually try and get as much time blowing bubbles as I can, so just keep going until I’m tired or until the tanks are empty and the shops are closed
