I notice two tank boat trip crew seem to think we want cold drinks in the time between dives.  That may be true in hot summer destinations but not all places all the time.

Just finished a trip with 78F water and strong cool breezes.  The divers really wanted warm drinks but ice water was what was always served.

 

Anyone else notice this tendency?

I always like a hot cup of coffee after a dive to warm up.

In Indonesia, we were diving cool waters, so I asked for double hot chocolates. Then I hopped in a hot shower.

The main point of consuming liquids between dives is to stay hydrated. The air in the tank is very drive taking promoting dehydration. See http://www.daneurope...safety-campaign.

 

I only dive in warm climes but can appreciate a warm drink in cooler ones would be appreciated but I can see it is not always practical on a dive boat. There are also the safety issues of hot drinks on a moving boat. Ever notice airlines don't serve coffee of tea when the seat belt sign is on?

Hot drinks are a staple in most cold water areas. Try bringing a thermos of coffee.

As it is imperative to stay hydrated while diving, (and to be well hydrated before beginning the first dive of the day), I’ll do whatever I can to drink as much as I can throughout the day. When diving from my own boat or with local friends and commercial operators on hot days, I bring along a pair of 2 liter bottles of ice. As they melt, they’re a source of cold water, and I can top them off as needed from a water jug or cooler. This allows me to avoid using the single serving disposable plastic bottles that are frequently supplied by some local operators. On cooler days or when diving in cold water, I’ll bring along one bottle of ice and a big thermos of tea, chocolate, or broth. Thus I tend to drink a lot each day, and don’t worry about my suits getting overly odiferous as my dry suits have pee valves, and my wet suits have relief zips.


Life is short. Drink the good wine first.
