Dive Logs

Do you log your Scuba dives? I am going to start keeping a log of my dives to keep a reference of conditions/game taken.

An electronic is a good idea and in fact many of the upper end dive computers by usb connection provide just that, an electronic record.

I have over 200 scuba dives I have a log of. I also add a picture or two to the log. It makes it funner to look back on years later.

I dont have a dive computer just pressure and depth gauges. I have been scuba diving for the last two years and have yet to log my dives. Would be cool to look back and remember the dives. I like the idea of adding pics to it.

I logged my first 50 dives or so, then like an idiot, I stopped because most of my diving was along the same lines, up north for hunting and gathering, down south for photoging. I TRULY regret that decision! I would give anything for an entire record of my last 25 years of diving. So take it from this middle aged salt, it's worth the hassle and time to log your dives! I know that I have at least five hundred, but it sure would be nice to know the real number and celebrate the larger milestones! I know it doesn't seem important to you when you're young, but trust me, it will be a treasure to you later in life!

Exactly what Mike Rodgers said. I was certified in 89' and didn't really start logging my SCUBA dives until a couple years ago. I wish I had. Its also important to do if you wanna reach dive master. I think they wanna see a bunch of logged dives. I'm not too sure on the a
Punt as I stopped at rescue.
But like some of the others, I don't log freedives, no need.

Just a recommendation but it may be helpful in the future to put down what type, sizes and the number of fish you saw on your dive whether you speared them or not.
Looking back to 1987 I'm not seeing much deference in the fish population except for cabazone and the black rockfish were bigger.

If your a trouphy hunter than I would keep track of those ab spots and keep it locked up. When you retire you could sell it  :evil6:
