25th October 2006 ... Teluk Kembahu 2 in Lembeh Strait, Sulawesi
Max Depth = 20.7m
Murex Tribulus could have been the last thing I saw ... if not for my buddy, Endee, whom I had to A.A.S. with (aka Share Air!)
WHAT IS THE BUDDY SYSTEM?
PADI requires that each diver be accompanied under water by a buddy who can share air or provide other assistance. SCUBA apparatus is designed to carry an extra demand regulator. This is required in case one diver runs out of air and has to share a single tank with his or her buddy. Ideally, the buddies should have similar training and skill levels; it does no good to have a buddy who dives deeper or stays down longer than you do. Buddies should stay close together and always be aware of each other's location.
