    Ain't 20FSW the same as 20FFW?

    Yes 20 feet is 20 feet but a lot of fresh water dive's are at altitude (different dive tables and weights) this is a way of specifying diving at sea level in saltwater.

    I was teasing you. Rec divers have always cracked me up. 20 down is 20 down, salt, fresh or motor oil...but you said that.

    Cozumel is on my bucket list. Did you do a drift dive?

    No it is not the same. While it is fairly straight forward, diving at altitude does have its concerns and procedures. Usually you can figure adding approximately 4% to your actual depth for every 1000' in altitude you dive in. For instance, if your diving at 5000' then you would add 20% to your actual depth, that 60' dive would become a 72' dive with all the compression and decompression issues.

    99% of Cozumel is drift diving.

    I didn't come even close to saying that diving at altitude is the same as diving at sea level as it concerns decompression.
