Important information

Safety first

Your safety is important so if you would like to scuba dive, you'll need to complete a medical history form. You may also need a physical check-up. If you're over 45 years of age or have a previous medical condition, please bring a doctor's certificate confirming that you're fit to dive. Whether you can or cannot dive, will be entirely at the discretion of your qualified instructor whose main concern, at all times, is your safety.

Please ensure you check the PADI Medical Statement here to ensure you do not have any 'Yes' answers that may need a medical doctor's advice and signed approval before you can join any scuba diving course. Upon successful completion of your pre-booked dive course, there will be a PADI processing fee of £25 for your certification card. This is not included in the pre-book price.
