    So there is/is not anybody on the boat during the dive?

    Nope, that's why we carry SMB's, just in case

    I'm not from here, in fact my family is in New Mexico. When I go out diving I tell them I'm out.

    Other than that a orange flag waving in the ocean is a sign of distress, I personally also carry a signal mirror just in case.

    Its a big big ocean and it can change surprisingly quickly some times.

    Hey Viper,
    I'm up for diving in the spring. I can definitely help with gearing up. No worries with that, we all need help with stuff. If you wanted to go out in the boat with 3 or 4 people, I would happily take my turn staying on the boat.
