Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions I don't remember any restrictions so to speak. We dove within safe guideline. We never really went below 110 as we were on Nitrox on first dives and typically 80 or less on others. We dove as long as the air lasted. On 120CF tanks, that often was right at 1.5 hours.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes
