My scientific estimate is that you will gain about a pound per week during your trip. Does that answer the question?
In other words, don't count on the diving to help compensate for the overeating and lack of other exercise.
WOW!! I had no idea I could burn that many calories having so much fun. Thanks for the info. I'll have to tell hubby we need an exercise vacation, he'll be thrilled with it.
You can use the fitness tracker- type in "scuba diving" in search option.
It shows me that I burn a LOT, more than any other exercise. Which is weird because I dont think it raises my heart beat much, however I do feel like I burned a lot of calories. Go figure...

Hi Becky, I guess it would depend on the type of diving but they do have it on the fitness tracker. I go by that when I am diving. I know that I will burn way more calories doing local dives than vacation diving since the conditions are so different.

Hi Team. Several of us are getting ready for dive vacations and probably won't be doing a lot of other "regular" exercise. My dive buddy has scheduled us for 16-18 dives while in Belize (I guess I won't see the rain forest this trip). Just how many calories do we burn while diving?
I've heard and read that's it's around 600/hour. Has anyone done any research or read anything differently? After the initial adrenaline rush has subsided, I know that I'm wiped out after 4 dives a day.
