Hello everybody,
I want to know, if girls are good as men underwater?
As i read, girls are more calm and patient than us, so it helps.
I want to see what gilrs and men have to talk about this.

Your buddy,

Last time I looked I was a girl, and my dive buddy (a man) keeps calling me to go diving with him. So I guess he thinks I'm a good buddy [Big Grin]

Of course I've seen a lot of good and bad buddies that are male and female. I think that it boils down to experience and comfort in the water. Also, not diving beyond your experience and training says a lot, too.

I have always enjoyed female dive buddies. Females always seemed to make the better students in classes as well.

I enjoy diving with anybody that will go, although I find that men are a little more adventurous.

i have been running charters since 93
and i have found that men and woman become just divers. some are good and some are not, in both sexes.
once the equipment is under the water it works the same for woman and men
i enjoy diving with both
the only thing i realy notice is the degree of experince that the diver has
good luck

All things being equal, I find women have better air consumption.
