Default Has anyone ever puked underwater?

I have. Right into my regulator today, at 60 ft. Kind of scary. I always heard, if you have to throw up while diving, do it into your regulator. But I thought, how could that ever happen? Well, after 26 years of being on the water fishing, diving, working, I got seasick for the first time in my life today. I really didn't feel that bad, but got down to 60 ft. and had the urge to cough really bad, so I did. Uh oh, there's that puky feeling in my stomach. I decided to abort the dive, but it was too late. It was actually easier than I thought, but still scary thinking I could have aspirated on it or drowned somehow. Anyways, after it was done I hung out on the anchor line awhile and felt great, so I went on to bottom and finished the dive. No fish to legally shoot (nice snapper taunting everywhere) but I did salvage a nice anchor so it wasn't a total loss. All in all, crappy seas, nothin biting but cuda and snapper.

Has anyone else had an experience like this?

Josh, until about 2 years ago I would puke on my second dive of the day every time. Always on my safety stop and always my second dive?

I have gotten cotton mouth bad and that makes me gag, but never threw up underwater. So, you have had the experience, would you throw up in your regulator again, or try to pull it out?

Never remove your reg to puke - always hold it in and puke through it. The natural reaction after you puke is to inhale.

i guess make sure you chew your food well before every dive. you wouldnt want to clog any holes with hotdog chunks or corn. just kidding. im not certified yet but thanks for adding another worry to my list. kidding again. im glad everything worked out for you.

Probably should put the bong away :letsdrink



Just messing around. I've gotten so thirsty underwater. Been thinking about bringing a camel pack down with fresh water seems to work for some of the guys doing long deco

I use to work with aman who's sister (a former Miss Texas) died diving. She was an "experienced diver" but went diving hungover. She threw up so much it filled/clogged her regulator, she sucked in water and drowned. Her dive partner got her up pretty quickly but they could not revive her.
