Flying after scuba diving, what do I need to know?
When scuba diving you are breathing compressed (pressurised) air, also by being underwater your body is in a pressurised environment, just like when you are in a plane. So before you can fly home your body needs time to readjust; we call if "off-gasing".
We recommend leaving 24 hours between diving and flying, even though the industry standard is only 12 hours for a single dive and 18 hours for two dives on the same day.
