What is a no stop dive?

How deep is a no stop dive?

BSAC and PADI no-stop dive times:

12 metres (40 feet) dive depth: BSAC no decompression time limit 122 minutes (PADI Tables 140 minutes).

How deep can you free dive without decompression?

There’s a bit of physics and physiology involved in a full explanation, but the short answer is: 40 metres/130 feet is the deepest you can dive without having to perform decompression stops on your way back to the surface.

What is the best depth for a safety stop?

In fact, the optimal method for reducing post-dive bubble production (and therefore reducing the risk of DCS) was the combination of 1) an ascent rate of 10 m per minute with a deep stop at about half the depth of the dive for 2.5 minutes and a stop at 5 m for three to five minutes.

How fast should you ascend while diving?

You should never exceed an ascent rate of 10m/minute when diving shallower than about 30m. . An ascent rate of 5-6 metres per minute is recommended in the last 10m of ascent. Complete safety stops on all dives that exceed 10m depth. Safety stops assist with reduction of excess nitrogen, which reduces the risk of DCI.
