  • Due to Queensland Scuba diving regulations, all divers need to complete a medical questionnaire before starting any PADI dive course/program or undertaking guided diving activities. Certain medical conditions and/or medications may preclude you from scuba diving and will therefore require a dive medical release from an approved Scuba diving physician prior to travel. This can be done locally at the divers’ own expense. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your fitness to dive.

  • Certified Divers: It is the responsibility of certified divers to obtain a valid dive medical prior to the trip if your state of health has changed since completing your last dive or since your last dive medical. This includes the intake of medications. Please see the link to the Queensland Dive Medical Statement and if any doubt exists please Contact Us.
