Dive own profile yes
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.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? N/A

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.
