Important information for diving:
All divers must complete a Medical Questionnaire. Please be aware that certain medical conditions (eg asthma, heart disease, diabetes) and/or prescription medication may preclude some people from diving.
You will need to fill out the following documents for diving - you can download them and fill them out now or fill them out on the day. Please have a look at them to see what is required:
Be able to swim 200 metres and tread water for 10 minutes
Divers over 65yrs require a medical - if you answer YES to any question you will be referred to a qualified physician for a Dive Medical assessment. You will not be allowed to dive until you are certified fit to dive.
For advice please contact our office directly. Final decisions rest with our qualified dive instructors who consider your safety – our highest priority.
