    ^^^ This.

    I also do a double-breath version where you use a first part breath to get the thing upright and out of the way before giving it a proper breath and letting it go. But unless you're...

    The speed and range might be of interest if the ride is smooth and the cost isn't sky high. If it's a deafening roar and compacting your spine, less so. 3 dives per day is ok too provided the boat...

    Yes, basically. A new Miflex HP hose should be ok. All hoses fail though, and be aware that Miflex hoses do have a service life. Keep an eye on them and it should be fine. I've had my LP ones for a...

    It used to be the case that Padi was the most recognised certification but those days are past now fortunately. FWIW, if you want to learn in the UK, have a think about timescales and how you'd like...

    A couple of quick thoughts for you.

    1) you're ready when you're ready. It varies so I don't think there's one answer. Sorry that's not helpful but IMHO it's just how it is.

    You could just go for the obvious solution - be open with the group and ask all parties involved how they want to proceed.

    Stoney has open access - you don't need to be a member to dive there. Registration is required for their ticketing system online but I'm pretty sure that you can walk up and pay directly (they don't...
