Myth No.6: The guide/instructor/buddy will take care of me.

That one is really wrong.


Myth No.7: If I feel warm, I am warm.

No, it just means you just peed your wetsuit.


Myth No.8: You can't exceed the no-decompression limits on a single tank.

Sure you can. You just have to apply yourself.


Myth No.10: Sharks are a major threat to divers.

Wrong, bad buddies are.
Remember, email is an inefficient communications forum. You may not read things the way it was intended. Give people the benefit of the doubt before firing back... Especially if it is ME...! ;)

There are two other related myths. The first is that you can't incur more minutes of deco than you've been down for. The second is that you will actually be able to surface in the "ascent time" shown by your computer.
