Enforced diving restrictions  
Was told by the operator of the vessel, that peeing in your wetsuit was not
allowed.  The second dive on each dive was a shallow dive and bottom time
wass extended to 60 to 70 minutes.  I guess the only way not to pee, was
stay unhydrated.

Comments  
We ending up diving our third day with another dive operation because of
their restrictions on peeing.  On the second day of diving, the owners
daughter told the dive master to give us our dive briefing before we were
loaded on the boat, and if any one of us said anything about peeing in your
wetsuit, that the whole group would be taken off the boat and lose their
day of diving.  Both divemasters were very helpful, but the owner and his
daughter were not condusive to diving with the restrictions on peeing.  If
a diver is well hydrated, there is no way you are going to go more than a
hour underwater without peeing.
