I normally run out of bottom time before my air supply runs low; as a result, my average dive is one-hour plus. In order to get in longer dives, I try to be ready to jump in the water as soon as the gate opens on every dive. If the dive limit is one hour, then that one hour clock doesn't start until the last person is in the water or the gate closes. Being first in the water means I'm back at the swim step about the same time as the next-to-last diver.

The DM/Captain needs to clarify any gate/maximum-dive-time policy in the pre-dive briefing. If they don't, they have no call to complain. Just tell me what the parameters are.
