Had a guest that wanted to go diving on the last day of the their holiday and I remembered there is medical advice against it and got it confirmed.
Bare minimum is 12 hours – and that’s if you’ve been pootling quite shallow. If you’ve been wreck diving, then you need to leave up to 24 hours – better safe than sorry, I think.Usually you knock off about 4pm, then get the flight the next afternoon, so you’re not really missing a day, cos you have to pack your gear up etc make sure all the salt’s rinsed off etc.Here’s DAN, they are the medical advisers to the diving industry.http://www.diversalertnetwork.org/medical/articles/article.asp?articleid=20
So don’t go diving on the last day and instead of sitting by the pool clock-watching, see the valley of the kings 🙂
Got another piece of advice in response to this post
Andy Radcliffe A single dive within recreational limits: 12 hours
Multiple days/multiple recreational dives: 18 hours
Decompression diving (planned or unplanned): 24 to 48 hours
