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


Everyone intending on completing introductory diving with Blue Dive is required to complete the PADI Discover Scuba Diving medical questionnaire.


If any diver answers ‘YES’ to a question on the medical questionnaire then they will be required to have clearance to dive from a qualified doctor.


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 when booking and we can advise.


All divers with a medical condition are required to contact us prior to booking to dive. There are very strict requirements around diving with medical conditions and we need to discuss to discuss this directly with you.


If you require medical clearance to dive please download the PADI Medical Statement. After contacting us and discussing your condition this form will need to be filled out by a doctor.


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


Please note that AFTER diving, current safety regulations require a 24 hour surface interval before flying. So you can fly any time after 2.30pm the following day.
