"Same ocean, same time" policy seems to be the norm around here.

Heading out with the dive shop for a night dive last month. The instructor says about 3/4 of the way out there, "You know this is basically a solo dive, right? You good with that? Hard time is be back at the boat in an hour and a half. One minute past 9:30pm and we notify the Coast Guard and start emergency procedures."

Most of the people I’ve dived with who offend the "buddy dive" system are dive shop employees and instructors. They all seem to work on the "Do as I say and not as I do" policy.
