Recreational scuba divers can use this Dive Planner to plan dives that avoid the need for decompression when ascending. Warnings are displayed when dive parameters exceed the limits of "no decompression" dives or come close enough to the limits to require a safety stop.

For single dives, enter the planned depth (in meters or feet) and press the NDL button to calculate the maximum bottom time that stays within the no decompression limit.

For two dives, enter the planned depth and bottom time for each dive and press the Min button to calculate the minimum surface interval between the dives that avoids the need for decompression when ascending from the second dive.

For more than two dives, dive parameters may be entered for as many as nine dives and the minimum surface interval calculated between each pair of dives.

Calculations are consistent with PADI recommendations, so the Dive Planner avoids the need for traditional dive tables. Residual nitrogen groups may be specified for instructional purposes.

Disclaimer: This Dive Planner is intended for use only by trained scuba divers when planning fresh air, no decompression dives at altitudes less than 1000 feet and should not replace a wearable dive computer. The author does not accept responsibility for improper use of this app or injuries incurred during dives.

Simple and wonderful

One of the more challenging items to learn and master in scuba diving is the dive table. This "Simple Dive Planner", based on the PADI dive table, makes the tedious task simple and fun. Safe diving! Perhaps an actual dive planner and dive log program for the Macintosh user could be designed by the author in the next version.

5/5 stars

Excellent Dive Planner

This is the third app I've downloaded, (and the least expensive), but its layout and functionality are superb. It is an excellent dive planner for both the new OWD and seasoned divers as well. It is intuitive and accurate.

5/5 stars


I love this app! It is so much better and less expensive than other apps used for dive planning. I have tried all of the dive planners on the app store and this is by far the easiest to use, most accurate, and the best design of all.

If I were to suggest an addition to this great app, I have to say I would love to see the ability to save dives with dates and locations in either a selectable list format or an calendar format. If the next update included that, I wouldn't even mind paying for the update... It would definitely be worth it!
