Best Longform Diving Jokes

Two divers go spear fishing. They catch a lot of fish and return to the shore. The first one says, “I hope you remember the spot where we caught all those fish.” The other answers, “Yes, I made an ‘X’ on the side of the boat to mark the spot.” “You idiot!” cries the first, “How do you know we will get the same boat tomorrow?”

The boat dive. Three instructors and their students are onboard a dive boat in the middle of the ocean. There is an SSI instructor, an IAC instructor, and a PADI instructor. Everything is going fine until the boat springs a leak and starts to sink. The SSI instructor says to her students, “Okay, we’re in the middle of the ocean, so we might as well do our deep dive.” The IAC instructor says to his students, “Okay, we might as well do our navigation dive, so let’s get our compasses out and swim towards shore.” Finally, the PADI instructor puts on a big smile and says to his students, “Okay everyone, for $25 you guys can do a wreck dive!”

If Microsoft made dive gear:

  • Useless tips would show up on your dive computer every time you turn it on.
  • None of your new gear would be compatible with any of your old stuff.

  • Every dive computer would be from Microsoft and any deaths from them would be explained as a “beta version” problems. Don’t worry, we’ll fix that in the next release.
  • Every time you were really close to your destination, your boat would crash.
  • Your air supply would stop and have to be restarted every couple of minutes and you would accept this as normal.
