Requirements Health, diving and flying

Minimum age 12.


All divers need to be “fit to dive” and this means signing a form indicating this when here.


To avoid the disappointment of not being able to dive when here, you must be able to answer “no” to the following questions.
If any diver answers “yes” to any of the questions 1-6 you MUST bring “clearance to dive” stating the condition(s) and signed by your doctor and from within the year.


Please note that asthma, fainting episodes, heart and lung problems and some other medical conditions will prevent you from diving.  If unsure it is crucial that you let us know on booking and we can advise.


PADI form for those on medications or with medical issues can be downloaded here.


Also please assure to pass on these medical questions to all the people in your booking – as your friends or family may not have disclosed their medical situation to you.


1. Are you currently suffering from any illness or injury that may be incompatible with diving?
2. Have you ever had any medical condition that may effect your heart, ears or lungs (e.g. heart disease,  sinus/ear operations or asthma)?

7. Are you pregnant?  If you are pregnant – for safety – you should not dive.


If unsure about medical fitness it is very important to let us know in advance.


Please note that AFTER diving, PADI safety regulations require an 18 hour surface interval before flying. So you can fly after 8.30am the day after your diving day.
