Best Answer

It depends on how deep the diver goes, and what air blend the diver is breathing.

There are dive tables that state how long a diver can stay at a certain depth before requiring decompression.

The basic recreational diver typically breathes either air or Nitrox. There are separate dives tables for air and Nitrox.
