TIMING OF THE DIVING SESSIONS

Schedule pool

 

HORAIRES PLONGEE

  • Door Opening:  during the week at 12h00 ;  on W-E, at 10h00 (or 11h00 during summer).
  • Check in:  Divers are asked to be at NEMO33 preferably 1 hour BEFORE the start of the dive (minimum 1/2h before)
  • 30 minutes before the dive, all registrations should be FINISHED.  Atention, during the high season (december - march), we have to be rigorous !
  • 15 minutes before the dive, we give a sound signal (ring bell) and the doors for the changing rooms are open.  By that time there is not posible to register anymore!
  • 5 minutes before the dive, a dive briefing will be given next to the pool.
  • During the first 10 minutes divers enter the water to practice freediving or to swim.  It is not allowed to swim or freedive on top of the deep pit (34 mts) or to descend and/or cross by the underwater section where the caverns are.  Apnea should be done in buddy teams, so that when one descends, the other one stays on the surface supervising.  Static apnea is forbiden. (you can read the complete dive briefing in the section BRIEFING).
  • After the first 10 minutes, (a bell will ring), the divers are allowed to exit the pool, choose their equipment and prepare their bottles. The dive time should be planned to be out of the water on the next hour sharply.  Dives should not exceed 45 minutes.
  • Divers are responsible for their dive profile and their safety stop to guarantee their safety and their buddy's.  The rules that apply, depend on each federation and licence of each diver, but it is important to adapt to the reality of a pool-pit like NEMO33.  Between some of the rules that should be followed are: IMPORTANT :  Divers should plan their dive profile so that it is NOT NECESSARY to do a decompresion stop.  The only stop that should be planned is the SAFETY STOP.  In theory, it sholud not be needed, but nevertheless it is recommended. SPECIFIC RULE at NEMO33: Divers cannot stay more than 10 minutes (cumulated) in the zone of the pit between -20m and -34m. If the diver makes a second dive the same day, this time is shortened to 5 minutes.VERY IMPORTANT RULE :  The surface interval between 2 dives can't be less than 2 hours !   Example:  A dive from 2pm till 3pm, can only be followed by a second dive from 5pm till 6pm onwards. IMPORTANT REMINDER : The individual divecomputer is COMPULSORY, specially when dives occurs in a so short period.

 

  • At over 45 minutes, all divers should have already exit the pit and everyone should be above 10 mts.
  • 5 minutes before the next hour (next session starts), you will hear a sound signal underwater to indicate you that is the end of the dive.  You should start you your safety stop and exit the water.
  • All divers should exit the water on time so that the next group of divers can enter the pool.
  • We ask you to strictly follow and respect our timing / planning so that the next sessions do not  get altered or interrupted.
