    Default HOW DEEP WOULD YOU GO ON AIR while SOLO DIVING IN A CAVE?

    I guess I'm spoiled by Trimix ... but went to a cave in Exuma, Bahamas and it just kept going deeper and deeper so I turned at 140 ft.

    0ft, if I don't have time to plan the dive properly I can wait. I would come back with a buddy and proper gas mix.

    Good idea to turn at 140....My personal rule is that in a cave I will have an END of 100 ffw or less.

    +1. If that makes me a cave wimp, so be it.

    Air is no longer an underwater breathing gas, period.

    Exuma has 2 diveshops, with nothing else but air.
    I was even that naive that I thought I was going to use my CCR here

    You say that until you go CCR, then it's an easy diluent.

    I did 140 on air diluent, once.
