Dive 286, Barrier Reef


Time started: only dive of day
Max depth: 7-9 meter
Dive time: 50 min
Nitrox 21% (normal air), No stop

Description of dive:

Training: Open Water Dive 1

Training: No skills, tour for pleasure under new PADI standard for 1st dive

Comments: Not much of interest, a few grunts, a large grouper, nice corals: brain, cabbage. Did a square pattern and arrived right back at the boat, but had air still and traveled out from anchor. Ed down to 40 bar, so we had to surface away from the boat.

Surface interval duration planned: 25 min
