we are required to do multiple bounce dives to 50 ft as much as can be accomplished per day there are 70 dive locations. I am concerned about the quantity of accents on scuba. what are your views on this.
Thanks for your question. To answer it I went to the most conservative dive planner I know, the PADI Dive Tables.
I ran a profile based on dives no deeper than 50 feet and a bottom time of no longer than 7 minutes. According to the dive planner, I was able to make 8 dives before PADI said I was required to make a safety stop at 15 feet for 3 minutes.
If you use a dive computer, you will get a more liberal profile. Plus, it is easier to track your dives.
When doing bounce dives, as with all dives, stay within your depth and time limits and ascend as slow as possible. This will allow for a little more nitrogen off-gassing and increase your margin of safety.
I hope this information helps.
