    Is this bad?

    Ok, this past Saturday I got done with my underwater nav dive and still had some air left. The instructor asked me and my buddy if we would go back down and see is she forgot anything from the haunted night dive, Halloween props. So we went back down and we were at about 25-30' and I thought I heard talking. I didnt think much of it as I knew it was impossible since I was underwater, but at one point I heard my name loud enough that I even turned around to see, it freaked me out and we ended the dive right there. Is this something common or something bad?

    Hummm, well if the person you were diving with was messing with you... nope not bad at all.

    On the other hand.. if you were going to visit crazy land..then yes.. that would be bad.

    It is possible to talk underwater and have people hear you...just do it thru your reg.

    Hearing voices is generally thought to be a bad thing. They weren't telling you to cut your buddy's air line with your dive knife were you?

    But seriously.
    Could have been narc'd possibly.

    My buddy was about 20 ft in front of me, and the voice I heard call my name was a womans voice, we were the only dives in the quarry.

    Sounds like someone was probably just messing with you. Sound travels quite well underwater.

    You said you instructor was female, maybe she was messing with you and she was the one that asked you to go back in.

    I was getting very comfortable with the crazy idea.... and you have to go and mess it up.

    The only problem with that was that she went up the hill to get her vehicle, does sound from the surface really travel that well 30' underwater?
