This was the first of Yvette's final 2 checkout dives. Once she got her ears equalized and her buoyancy down, I had her follow me down the rope out to Peace Rock. I stopped and turned around to be sure she was following me. She was about 20ft back. I signalled to ask if she was OK. She signalled that she was not OK and started to throw up. I escorted her back to the platform. She was able to relax, regain control, rinse her mouth :-) and wanted to complete the dive. I took her over to Peace Rock. We turned on the lights and looked at the rope that descended around the back of the cavern. We worked our way across the back, staying on top of the big rocks while looking down (following) the rope. From there we slowly made our way to the air bell. We talk in there for a couple of minutes then made a nice slow exit. We went over to one of the ascent lines and did a safety stop, then exited the water.
