As our boat cruised towards the next dive site off the shores of Siladen Island, a captivating fusion of local Indonesian music and the soothing rhythm of the waves drowned out the mechanical hum of the motor. The melodic tunes intertwined seamlessly with the natural symphony, creating a harmonious backdrop for our surface interval.
A surface interval refers to the time spent on the surface between successive scuba dives. It is the period when divers stay out of the water after completing a dive before they can safely begin another one. The purpose of a surface interval is to allow the body to eliminate excess nitrogen absorbed during the previous dive, reducing the risk of decompression sickness.
Thanks to the fantastic team at the Siladen Resort & Spa.
