Question
Posted : May 9, 2006
We, as a club are shortly going on a dive trip where most dives are 30m +. We have a junior member who has booked a place, along with a her parent. What are the restrictions a junior should observe in relation to depth as we have conflicting reports. Thank you.

This is a physiology/experience thing...
ie if its a big teenager with the AoW, then 30 is ok,
but if its a smaller child with Junior Bubblemaker, then stick to 18 max,
also this depends on vis conditions etc..
