    The Windy Island

    Use the towel

    It can be very windy on the Island, so please remember to keep dry and warm on land. The resort provides you unlimited supply of towels for your comfort. After a dive, it's better to rinse yourself quickly and dry yourself up immediately. I caught cold the first day for acting macho.

    Decompression Dive

    From the deep

    Please be careful, the water was so clear you'll think you're diving at 20m but in actual you're already at 40m. Further the down current was fairly strong, you'll easily hit 45-50m without notice. To ascent from the deep, you'll need consistant effort. Kick at a relaxed pace and be consistant, you'll slowly ascent to safer depth. The ultimate allowable depth by the divemaster was 40m, watch your computer and tank pressure closely, don't fall into a situation where you don't have enough air to complete your decompression stop. The divemasters have the right to ban you from diving.
