Some people are telling me that they won't let you dive with a knife or gloves in the red Sea !
Isn't this a bit hazardous?
Can they really stop you on a day boat?
What if you get a entanglement situation, fishing wire or nets.  Or shark attack, I would like to think I had some form of defence!

It depends on the operator. When diving with Emperor they told some fellas on our boat not to wear gloves. And they made me take my 2 inch dive knife off. (It's sort of screwed on to my jacket)

OTOH, when diving with Ocean College last December, the guides didn't say anything at all.
