If you have none of the listed conditions then you do not need to see a doctor and you can complete the form here upon arrival. Please note that not all conditions listed on this medical from can be assessed by the doctors on this island.
Failure to read and action this form may result in you not being able to dive. If you are unable to get to your own doctor to sign you off as fit for diving but have one of the conditions listed then please mail us so that we can advise you on what your options are.
In order to dive safely and be comfortable around deep water you must be able to swim. Please note that in order to be able to complete the open water course participants need to complete a 200m swim or 300m snorkel. There is no time limit in which to complete this. Participants also need to be able to float for 10 minutes too.
Each diver, unless taking a Discover Scuba Dive or open water course, must show proof of certification in order to dive. If you have lost or misplaced yours please get in touch to see if we can help.
Divers may not dive beyond their training limits.
