What are the rules for flying and diving?

May 31st, 2018

There are no restrictions on flying before scuba diving.


After scuba diving current guidelines say that you should not go to altitude (fly) within 12 hours of completing a single dive, or 24 hours when doing multiple dives. These rules also apply to skydiving, helicopter rides and hot air ballooning after diving.


If you have less than 24 hours between diving and flying you will only be permitted to complete the first dive  of the day.


Most of our diving activities conclude by 3pm, this means you can safely fly out of Cairns airport anytime after Rpm the following day.
