How do I know if I need a medical to dive?

May 31st, 2018

Diving is considered an extremely safe sport and has a much better track record for injury than many other adventure sports. However, certain conditions can raise risks with diving, particularly if you suffer from certain respiratory or circulatory conditions. If you do, it does not necessarily mean that you cannot dive, but you will need to see a doctor to get medical clearance and ensure diving poses no risk to your health.
