    # of dives per session

    Hello, Are there a recommended number of dives for specific depth per session? Can there be too many dives per session, as I came across info that you should make 1 dive under 90m, 2 dives to 60m? I would be interested in 10m, 20m, 30m depths information.

    How to stay calm while thoughts just pop in your head?
