Participants must:

  • be certified Oper Water Diver or higher level;
  • be in good mental and physical fitness to dive (medical certificate NOT required);

To get the most out of your dives, we recommend to all divers who have not been diving for over a year, in particular those with little experience, to attend a Scuba Refresher program before to get back into diving. You can enroll in a refresher class with your local dive center, or book a session with us as part of your stay.

We recommend to check with your doctor, on an annual basis, that you are in good medical fitness to dive. The purpose of the Diving Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you need to be examined by a physician before participating in a dive trip or in a diving course. If there is a positive answer on the questionnaire you should participate in scuba diving activities only if you are signed off by a physician to be fit to dive. Although not required, divers with more than 50 years are advised to bring the questionnaire signed by their doctor, or a medical certificate of good health, not older than a year.
