Three dives is pushing the limit. I have no problem with 2, but 3 is asking for trouble.
It encourages using the wrong gas and given the limited time to stay out there, there simply isn't a *safe* way to do it. It doesn't make much sense to me for a diver to do 3 *bounce* dives in one day when it would be better to use the correct gas with a set of doubles and spend an appropriate amount of time on the wreck...
We generally run 2 dives, at best. Lately we've been running 2 or 3 teams and we all just get one long jump. This allows us to get the most use out of our support divers. This allows us to spend 40 - 50 minutes on the wreck with a reasonable amount of deco..
Just my 2 cents...
