Divers medical questionnaire

Please read the diver’s medical questionnaire before signing up for this course. The purpose of this questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities.

Please contact us for any questions you have, more information and / or if you would like to make reservations for one of our classes.
