The article presents insights of several scuba diving experts on deep stop, a practice among divers in which they have additional stop during ascent beyond the demand of their computer algorithms. Diver Simon Mitchell says that it is not advisable to pursue deep stops regardless the suggestion of their dive computers. Physiologist David Doolette also asserts that recreational divers within no-decompression limits must not consider deep stop due to the good safety record of shallow safety stop.
