All divers must complete a Medical Questionnaire. Download it here: Divers medical questionnaire.pdf
Please be aware that certain medical conditions (eg asthma, heart disease, diabetes) and/or prescription medication may prevent some people from diving. Divers over 45 years old and anyone who answers YES to any of the questions on the medical questionnaire will require a recreational dive medical prior to diving. You will not be allowed to dive until you are declared medically fit to dive. For advice please contact our office directly.
