Diving holidays : 5 situations that will prevent us from diving

There are unforeseen situations that can happen and rot our holidays and there is not very much we can do !

And suddenly, our special diving holidays turn into nightmares

1 Overbooking

Arrive at a stopover and realize that the airline has overbooked … no luck the boat leaves just a few hours after our scheduled arrival and all flights are full

And find ourselves sheepish in an airport at the end of the world by imagining our friends boarding for the dive cruise of our dreams

NB : a variant is to get stuck in a terrible traffic jam and arrive late at the airport!

2 Forgetting

On arrival at the holiday spot, you realize that you have forgotten your diving mask with double corrective lenses for myopia and presbyopia

And having a myopia so strong that it is impossible to dive, we would not even see our buddy. In any case, our presbyopia would prevent us from reading our dive computer

3 Gastric problems

Go on a dive cruise and have diarrhea … No luck, no one on the boat has the medicine that we need. Put on a diving suit? NO;NO !

And in addition the paper is ultra thin, a horror !

4 Weather

The waves are so strong and the boat can not leave the harbor

Always possible to play cards, to visit the surroundings, to have a drink … yes but still, we must admit that it is really frustrating not to be able to dive

5 Enemy Number 1

Book a week of vacation … and get a cold when you are about to leave. It is just impossible (and dangerous) to perform a dive. A great classic really dreaded by divers and divers.

And have tears in your eyes seeing others go diving … and especially not want to listen to them tell all the wonders they have seen after each of their dives all beautiful, obviously


Without being exhaustive, this list of 5 disaster scenarios is based on observations and / or experience 😉

No miracle solution to these situations that ruin our dives but the need to stay zen (and enjoy it to engage in meditation?)

And you, what has already prevented you from diving on vacation?
