According to the good ol US Navy dive tables, a 130' dive you can stay 10 minutes as a no deco dive. Meanding you can go down, and begin your ascent within 10 minutes no decompression is required. A 15 minute dive requires only a 1 minute stop at 10'. I dove the dive on a single Alum 80 tank. I made it a short and sweet dive and kept it at just 10 minutes, then did a 5 minute decompression stop to play it safe. Guess it just depends on your air consumption. I dont use much, so can get away with a single 80 for such bounce dives.
THe secret to deep diving?? I recommend you take a deep diving class. and its mostly about lots of experience, and working gradually deeper and deeper.
