Active technical divers only (if you please):

Have you ever done three dives requiring staged decompression in the same day (Not during training)?

Secondly: would you again in the future if opportunity presented?

Why?

Assuming we’re talking about the dives they were doing, big nope. Just not worth the risk. 10 minutes of light backgas deco is one thing, deep trimix deco, rebreather or OC, is another animal.

I tend to view things in terms of overall risk profile for the dive, and you have to take into account the whole dive. Benign bottom portion doesn’t mean the deco won’t kill you, so you’ve gotta look at the whole thing. A 3rd serious dive, no matter how “easy” it is, can still kill you.

They were doing some profiles that I wouldn't do but in Truk Lagoon I did well over 3 deco dives per day but I was extremely generous with my deco. I think Peter teaches some really aggressive profiles

As Nancy Reagan preached..."Just Say No." In this case, to more than two serious dives per day. Heck, for really deep dives I'm very happy with just one.

In 24 hours, yes (up to 4 dives). But not on the same day, 2 trimix dives max on the same day, i never tried 3 trimix dives on the same day.
