How often do you dive?

Once week, a month, every six months or are you never out of the water?

Was going strong at a few times a month until a year ago. Then it's been hit and miss. The dry side of life gets in the way.

I've been trying to dive weekly, even if it's just in the quarry to do bouyancy drills or work on specific skills.

Been hitting about twice a month---pretty sad considering where I live. School has taken up a lot of my time.

About twice a month, sometimes more, which quite frankly is not enough for my liking!

I'm land locked too.... so I have to wait to dive until my once a year vacation. The last time I dove was January 2nd in Panama. Next week on the other hand....

About once a month during warmer weather (not at the moment, it's winter and too cold for me!). I make it worth while though and travel out of town and make a 2-3 day weekend of diving. A bit too expensive for more than once a month. I'd love to live somewhere with a great local dive spot. I live on the coast, but I don't like the diving here and don't have a regular dive buddy anyway.

Currently, while in AZ, every couple of weeks. Once I'm in Florida in 3 weeks, it will be at least 3 times a week...probably more...

I try to get one outing of about 3-4 dives every month. So far I'm dry for this month. It sucks being 4 hours from the nearest diving.

If I'm lucky it's once a month in the warmer months, then it's 3-4 times a week when I'm in the Keys on vacation (once or twice a year).

I try to do a couple dives a week year-round. More on holiday weekends.

with school and work, it's hard to dive as much as i want, but i try to take one trip per year. better than nothing i guess :)

I usually make about50 to 60dives a year. Most of them between march &amp; october. But I try to get a few winter dives in. Maybe this next year I'll try going someplace warm in the winter.

Since I got my own gear in March, it has been roughly twice a month locally, with a couple of dive trips thrown in.

Right now I dive about once a month. Land locked long drive to lakes or quarries.

TxHockeyGuy
07-24-2007, 14:54
During warm months I try to dive once a month if I can I'll get out twice. During colder months I don't dive.

Let see... My first dive was the weekend before the last one and I'll be diving the next weekend. So that will average in about twice per month. smileys/smiley16.gif

I try to get in a hundred dives a year.

Less than that and I get cranky.



Such as now. I'm behind the curve at the moment... I need to get back in the water!

As of right now its been about once a month-I would like to get it to every other week while the water is liquid if I can.

About 2-3 times a week.

Did a lot of diving in the last few months for being a newbie. Got OW certified in June and then went to Cozumel for a week at the end of June. Was able to go on two more times in August after buying gear. Looking forward to diving this Sunday. Might have a chance to go once more before it's too cold for me at the quarry. Hoping to take a vacation in January or February, but not sure yet.

Was hoping to AOW certified this month or in October, but I think I'd rather put that money toward vacation. I also won the PADI Photography specialty course in a raffle, so I might do that sometime soon.

I try to get in 2 trips/year - usually a week in the Caribbean with 10 -15 dives, and one 2 week combo resort/liveaboard in the Pacific where we get serious and get in 40 - 50 dives.

Average about 6-10 a week. Less when the weather is bad. More when on Dive holidays.

During dive season, I dive every month. Unfortunately, it's frigging lakes. Lakes!!!

What is this "blue water" to which many refer?

Sometimes 5 days a week in the summer months then more like bimonthly in the winter. I logged 109 dives last year and have 94 so far this year.

About 3 weekends a month --
I've been logging an average of 10 dives a month since getting my O/W cert at the end of April.

I'm 35 dives this year. I'm behind last year. I don't count this but, I also get to dive at work between 4 and 12 hours a week. If you would called diving in a pool diving.

I average 2 dives per week from the beginning of May thru November

I've been averaging over 50 dives a year. Living in Colorado, it's a bit tough! :smiley5:

I try to get to NM at least every other month in the winter, and do once a month in the CO lakes in the summer.

Add on to that my vacations, and 50 dives a year is easy to do. I think I'm at about 60 so far this year... so...

Man if I lived in FL, or S. CA! I'd be a fish! :smiley33:

Depends... are you single? If not, does your S.O. dive?

Readily available water or not, the spousal factor takes a toll. :(

I am lucky to get 15-20 dives a year in. Hell I have to work two jobs just so I take the family on vacation once a year.

Married with children all non diving! If I lived near better diving I'd actually spend less time diving more. My diving is often less about BT, and more about travel time!

Kudos to your wife for being so understanding!

Mine is not. :(

We're warm water divers and live in a cold water area, so we take two dive vacations a year. Winter trip is always a week on Maui since we own a timeshare there and love it. Summer trip is 2 weeks somewhere warm and wonderful. We dive at least 2 tanks a day, all the way up to 5 if it's a liveaboard, or a landbased place that's conducive that that.

scubafreak
09-13-2007, 22:00
Once a week at least. November I am on a liveaboard for 3 nights which will give me 12 dives :banana:

How often do you dive?


I set aside one weekday night and one weekend morning for diving, so at least twice a week. Every month or so I'll get on a boat so I'll get in a few more. I took a class last summer that was every Sat and Sun, all day for a few months. My wife made me slow down a bit after that.

TX1Chica
09-14-2007, 10:21
I would like to go at least once a month in the warm months. We take 2 vacations a year to Coz (Jan and May) so I get a few more dive in then. My husband doesn't dive and I live about 2hr away from anything worth diving. Makes it hard to dive more often.

09-14-2007, 11:08
Living in Colorado and being a warm water wuss I need to travel to dive. So I don't dive as often as I like but I usually average over 100 dives a year.

As often as I can, but not nearly enough.

Last year I did three great trips.

So, far I have only done my trip to Lake Travis, but Bonaire is coming soon!

Charles R

At least 1 trip a month usally 3-4 dives

cariss2709

Generally more or less 2 times a month in the summer. i chicken out when I see the water below 78. But once the water is above 80, I'm in the water as long as viz is good enough to where I can see my fingers if I hold them a feet in front of me.

SHAGGY
09-14-2007, 13:20
I get in appx 4 - 6 dives in a month unless I get called out at work to do more. So far, I have all my blue water trips all planned during the winter, so I can keep my fins wet year around. Basically, its fresh water in the summer and blue water in the winter. But,... I see a dry suit in my very near future.

Luckily Im close to some nice lakes so I get to go once every other week or so.
