Anticipated Dive Profiles

The dive shop or vessel owner and charterer should also have a full understanding of the anticipated dive profile. There should be a complete discussion regarding the anticipated bottom times, the anticipated surface intervals and the anticipated time at the dive site.

Emergency Plans – Perhaps the most important aspect of any dive plan is the putting in place of a contingency plan should a diving emergency occur. It is incumbent that the dive shop or vessel owner have in place a detailed emergency plan encompassing such matters as communications capability, evacuation procedures, location of the nearest hyperbaric medical facility, treatment of divers suffering from decompression sickness and first-aid medical supplies for other diving related injuries (such as poisonous stings and bites from marine life).
