After closing out ALL the bars on the cruise ship, I decided to go to the top deck and watch the sun come up on the next to last day of my first cruise.

Mainly it's just too shallow. Probably 30' at the most. And it's Little Rock Main water source, so they don't allow any swimming.

YUP! The mask is on my forehead!! I have a headlight on and you would have to rip my head off to get that mask off.

Anyway, I don't subscribe to the "No mask on forehead" rule. I do it all the time. In almost forty years of diving, I haven't lost one yet. As for it being for emergencies...well, if a diver is in trouble, they rarely take the time to balance a mask on the forehead. I find that they almost always rip it off entirely. Just my opinion from experience over the years.
