Sounds like the same old trap that a lot of operations have. If they call the dive they have to refund. If you call the dive they don't refund. Might have been worth asking if they had an alternate protected dive site.

Nice write up :)

If you are worried about looking cool without a snorkel, you can just get a foldable one ?

I'm with the others, I would have called the dive much earlier, probably on the boat.

Anyways I will always be that nerd with a snorkel after this I don’t care if it’s not cool. So glad I had it for the whole trying to grab the ladder part.

Not quite sure i get this logic. Keep the reg in, you can't get a mouth full of water unexpectedly with a reg like you can a snorkel.

I am soooo glad you inched your way back on board! Honestly, I've never been in really challenging situations. I love my diving easy peeasy. Not saying that I've been on a boat where the conditions were challenging, I usually just decide not to gear up and watch bubbles, or if just in case I splash and then realize this isn't fun I'm on my way to the surface with my buddy. Thanks for the write up.

Welcome to SB.

Glad to hear you & everyone in the boat made it back OK. Count your blessing. I would have cancelled the dive.

Looking forward to hearing more of your stories.
