Emergency Decompression Stop vs Safety Stop

Emergency Decompression Stop vs Safety Stop (What’s The Difference?)

If you follow safe diving practices (which I recommend you do) you will perform a safety stop on every scuba dive you do. Additionally, you will dive within recreational dive depth limits according to your scuba diver certification level and diver experience. This means that you’ll only dive within safe no stop time limits, but where these are exceeded by accident, you’ll carry out emergency decompression stops, in addition to a safety stop at 5-6 metres (16-20 feet) for a minimum of 3 minutes.
