I'd been on five trips where I just didn't like the conditions, so I didn't dive.

Well, not a dive trip per se but I had a night dive that I was scared about. It was midnight off Martinique. I don't recall but I think ~150' deep. Actually I wasn't really scared until we descended in the dark. Odd. No lights 'till we got close to the bottom. Just a weird feeling. I was working for Cousteau and it was my job. Had to go...

A group of my Marine buddies and I went out one night to this dive near some high walls in Okinawa.  The place was very dark and there was no light on the trail down to the water plus the water was very dark, no ambient light.  We all got the willies and went back to the barracks and drank instead.   We found out later that week that another Marine disappeared diving in the same spot a few days later.

Better safe than sorry. If it doesn't feel right, you shouldn't go.

If I dont feel that the dive is safe I dont go. Never be afraid to call a dive. You dont have to give a reason. I'm not talking about being excited because your in a new dive site. I'm talking about diving in stronger current than you feel safe in, or diving with a cold or dhest congestion. Dont put yourself in danger.
