    Another perspective I haven't seen mentioned here, is if you flew somewhere I have to assume you have been there diving several days. Tissue saturation from repetitive diving all week is major, so it's not just the 15 - 20 ft. dive on that last day that's gonna get you when you jump on the plane.

    TJ, I'm actually going to be coming off a cruise and the last 2 days onboard will have been days at sea. But I do realize the risk and it's not worth the hour or two of fun. I'll get 3 days in the Southern Caribbean and 1 in Ft Lauderdale so no tears here

    I personally don't dive 24 hours before flying (minimum). If the airplane should suffer pressurization problems you may suffer DCS.

    Here is what DAN has to say about it.

    Well I feel good about my decision We'll dive around 2 and fly the following day at 5. I'm comfortable with that.

    I would add sitting back and relaxing the last day as a great option. If I REALLY need to be in the water I either snorkel, go fishing or both.
